About this Episode

Where we talk about scale, and the power in size to communicate, in addition to an image. Bryant uses his photographs to connect, with nature and himself.

I want to say this once: a LIFE SIZE PHOTOGRAPH of a whale. Think about that. And think about the power of an image. To connect us to the things around us, and our place in the world, from our tiny vantage point. I wanted to talk to someone about the importance of SCALE for an image, whether it's small or giant, in communicating about the subject. It's not just an abstract attribute of a photograph, the size itself confers meanings. My guest is a photographic artist who feels deeply about the world, and uses scale to contribute to his thoughtful and powerful photographs.
