This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Can you imagine a camera in your toothbrush that acts as a crystal ball into your health? How about a robot paparazzi cloud trailing celebrities?
Mark Leong's photo series "Hong Kong Under China" features cityscapes of contemporary Hong Kong and reflects on its evolving identity since its handover to China. "Hong Kong Under China" is featured as part of the Open Society Documentary Photography Project's Moving Walls 21 group exhibition.
In this piece, Eric talks about his fears when shooting street, some highly recommended books and reminds all photographers to ask yourself why do you shoot? Something I ask everyone I teach the moment I meet them.
Over the weekend of May 31 and June 1, 2014, Rob Hornstra taught a weekend workshop at Aperture Foundation. The workshop, DIY Storytelling, focused on self-publishing a photobook. Hornstra took participants through the processes of financing, shooting, designing, promoting, and selling each of his self-published projects, and ended the workshop with a discussion about the landscape of contemporary photobook publishing. We caught up with Hornstra on the final day of the workshop to discuss his role not only as a storyteller, but also as an instructor.
