Photographers As Television Stars?DPMag Published in Blog
It's not every day you see photographers being interviewed on television. When you do, it's usually the icons of the 20th century who are household names anyway: Leibovitz, Avedon, Cartier-Bresson. But recently a regular photographer—talented, phenomenal, amazing, but still a regular working photographer—got his due on "the second best fake news show" on TV when Jon Stewart interviewed Ben Lowy on The Daily Show. Ben is a photojournalist whose new book, Iraq Perspectives, has received several honors including being selected by iconic William Eggleston to win the Center for Documentary Studies Honickman First Book Prize in Photography. That wasn't why he was interviewed, though. He was assigned to cover The Daily Show for an article in Rolling Stone and the producers were impressed enough to put him in front of their cameras. Check out the interview via The Online Photographer blog, then head over to Ben's web site to learn more about him and see his impressive work.
