Close Your Eyes & Learn to See
In the digital age, photography has been democratized and made accessible to nearly everyone. In this talk, photographer Kurt Moser speaks to journalist Karl Hoffmann about his “Lightcatcher” project – an effort to slow down photography by reverting to a technique that dates back to the 1850s.
Karl Hoffmann is a journalist in Palermo, Italy. For more than 20 years, he has been covering culture and politics in thousands of live news, reportages and documentaries.
