The last one of the year as we take a short break over the holiday period. We’re musing over cameras for left eyed shooters, revisiting focusing techniques, pricing a ‘day in the life’ photo business, Kev shares his plans for ’22 and we ask, “Could you shoot a wedding just with zooms?” We talk about photography start-ups, stolen library owned photobooks, have some jpeg editing tips, Covid passes at weddings and the most popular colour for an X100 range camera. Our guest is documentary photographer Casey Orr.

Guest of the week is Casey Orr
Casey Orr is an award-winning photographer and artist.
She uses her camera to explore questions she has about, among other things, the lives of women, the interconnectedness of all living things, our relationship to nature and notions of home and belonging. This questioning has taken her across the North Atlantic Ocean by containership, throughout the USA, UK and Europe photographing anarchists, behind the walls of HMP Leeds Prison, and into the lives of the many people, she collaborates with through portraiture.
Her work has been shown in various galleries in the US (Jen Bekman Gallery, New York; ATA Gallery, San Francisco; University of the Arts, Philadelphia; San Antonio College Gallery; Texas), as well as in galleries, museums, publications and festivals in the UK including The Palace of Westminster, Tate Exchange, Tate Liverpool, Look Liverpool International Photography Festival, Brighton Photo Biennale, Yorkshire Sculpture Park, The Observer Magazine, The Royal Photographic Society Contemporary Photography Magazine, National Portrait Gallery, London and (the first time the walls of prison have been used as a space for art) at HM Prison, Leeds.
Casey’s Latest Book Saturday Girl can be purchased directly from Bluecoat Press.
