On Taking Pictures

197: House Elf of Genius

February 2, 201689 min
This week, we talk a little about the recent Gregory Crewdson show at the Gagosian in NYC and how seeing a photograph in person can be vastly different than seeing it on a screen. Also, how you feel about meeting your heroes? Would you like a one-on-one, or do you prefer to keep them in your imagination? Plus, a trip to B&H sparks a discussion around gear—both the limitations of it and the notion that regardless of how well a piece of gear works, there’s something to how it feels in your hand that impacts how you use it. Miles Aldridge is our Photographer of the Week.
