This week on the show I’m joined by photojournalist Arthur Pollock.
Over the last 50 years, Arthur has photographed some of the landmark events in our country’s history — including the student protests to the Vietnam war and the space shuttle challenger explosion. He has also documented countless day to day stories and features for some of the country’s top news outlets. In the early 1980s Arthur joined the staff of the Boston herald, and over the course of his career has been the recipient of numerous awards including the World Press Award as well as the National Press Photographers Association Picture of the Year award. He is currently a assistant photo editor at the Boston Herald.
A collection of Arthur’s work has just be published by his son Jesse Pollock through Unpiano Books, and I recently spoke with Arthur over the phone about his career as a photojournalist, his experience documenting the challenger explosion and his new book.
Get stuck between the present and the past with this sweet and powerful song. | read
