Get the story behind the photograph

By far the best part of a photographic class or seminar is listening to a photographer talk about the approach and process they used to capture an image. Most photographs - especially photojournalistic work - exist in a void with little insight from the photographer that captured the image and what they were trying to achieve.
'The Image, Deconstructed' looks to turn this around and shines a light on the photographers that captured the images and how they arrived at those shots. The website provides interviews with photographers, asking them about their techniques, their gear, their preparation, and their mindsets when they photograph.
There are more than 100 profiles ranging from active combat photographers to commercial shooters to documentarians covering the ravaging effects of cancer. It’s a rich treasure trove of work and a must-read for any aspiring photographer looking to develop their voice.
