Amir Zaki teaches at UC-Riverside and has had his work displayed in numerous galleries, in his recent book California Concrete: A Landscape of Skateparks, and profiled via a short film.

Amir joins your hosts Mark Linsenmayer, Erica Spyres, and Brian Hirt to consider this common act that can stretch from the mundane to the sublime. How have our various purposes for photography changed with the advent of digital technology, the introduction of social media, and the ready access to video? What determines what we choose to take pictures of, and how does taking photography more seriously change the way we experience? We touch on iconic and idealized images, capturing the specific vs. the universal, witnessing vs. intervening via photography, and more.

Yes I admit, Corona has got the most of us humans. I don’t know is it us to blame because of this pandemic? a voice inside me says yes it is. We are so careless and do selfish deeds. We don’t care about other humans, its nature we talking about. Nature offers so much to sue and what we do in return we cut it day by day more and more. I own an annotated bibliography writing service where I read so many books giving warnings like STOP! STOP! STOP! now or regret later. Now see where are we. WHO stated that Corona is not leaving anytime soon till 2030. It’s here to stay.
