“Art History and Landscape Photography with Erin Babnik” is the title of the Out of Chicago Podcast Season 4 Episode 2. Interviewer Chris Smith masterfully drew out some answers from me that got us deep into topics including photography’s ancient past, compositional trends in landscape photography, meaning and storytelling, female landscape photographers, my relationship with my Photo Cascadia teammates, and much more. Recent guests on this show include Art Wolfe, Bryan Peterson, and Rick Sammon, so it was a great honor to join the lineup.
This new podcast show by Matt Payne offers “casual conversations” with landscape photographers in episodes that run longer and cover more ground than most others. Our wide-ranging discussion of nearly an hour and half includes: the history of the underground landscape photography group once operating as Area 51, my thoughts on the issue of photo manipulation, the challenges and rewards of becoming a full-time landscape photographer, putting social media into perspective, some thoughts on artistic vision, funny stories from the road, and more.
On Landscape Magazine interviewed me and asked some really thought-provoking questions about photography, art, and art history. I especially enjoyed answering the ones on near/far compositions and finding meaning in photographs. This is an absolutely top-notch publication, and I encourage anyone who enjoys great writing about landscape photography to subscribe to the magazine!
