On Monday 2nd April 2012 I got a call from the BBC World Service to come to Bush House in central London to talk about the Himba tribe and the experience I had producing the photo essay “Otjiperi – Katjiperi”
This was my first time doing a radio interview and found it all quite frantic but ultimately enjoyable. Originally this had been set to go on air later in the year but they pulled it forward and it aired the following morning in the UK and around the world what ever time it happened to be.
I guess its about understanding how people perceived the interview and how much of it became about me,(despite this blog post being about me but I think that is allowed ?) I am really not into scenarios when it becomes about the photographer and less about the work or the participants in the project. I hope a healthy balance was struck between facts and anecdotal experiences, I suppose that’s down to the audience to decide. One thing I am very clear on is that radio makes me sound much posher than I actually am, not sure if thats a good thing or not…… Click here to listen to the interview supplied with great thanks to: The World Today programme on the BBC World Service radio network
