In this episode of HTS, Valerie invited Patrick Ludolph to cohost. Together they answer questions from Mark Farrington and Mic Warmington about personal style becoming an artistic straight jacket and the frustrations of your subjects on the streets always being occupied with their mobile phones. Patrick was a guest on a show a few weeks ago, here is the link to that episode.

Mark Farrington asks: “Many photography educators recommend developing a personal style, but doesn’t that risk becoming an artistic straightjacket?”
Mic Warmington in the UK asks: “bonjour valerie - I don't call myself a street photographer but a photographer who happens to be on the street occasionally - and I find myself being increasingly frustrated...and it's all to do with the ubiquity of the mobile phone, or cell phone as they call it in the states...you're looking for gesture, for human interactions and what do you get? The mobile - it's as though people cant do anything with their hands any more because they're permanently occupied! un petit rant - excusez moi - but do you find the same?”
And The Winner Is....
