Right in the middle of this episode of The Daily podcast, there’s a little plug for the New York Times’ photographers, noting that they travel to dangerous places and learns skills like scuba diving just to get the right shot for the story.
I love that they describe photography as “a universal visual language”. I mean, it’s true! You can show a photograph to literally anyone in any part of the world, and they would surely get its meaning.
A photograph can do a lot of different things. It can connect us. It can bring us to places we’ve never been before. It can capture a story in a universal visual language.
👉 In my dream life, I’d be a part-time Times photographer, but for now I do my best around Austin. 😆
