Episode 2.4 – Christaan Felber
Christaan Felber studied photography at the Rochester Institute of Technology with producer and audio engineer Tom Starkweather. He told me about Chris’ book on boxing and then introduced me to him a few weeks later. I thought he’d make a good guest for the podcast because he self-published his book and also happens to be a hustling freelance photographer in New York City, working for clients like the New York Times Magazine, The New Yorker, ESPN The Magazine, and Vogue. com.
We met up at Tom’s place in Bushwick and had a nice conversation about his work and life, as well as Trent Parke’s Minutes to Midnight which he had not previously known about. It’s always nice to introduce a photographer to a book you appreciate.
