Episode 2.5 – Ola Billmont


Episode 2.5 – Ola Billmont 

I met Ola Billmont last fall in Los Angeles when I was there for a group show. He was visiting, and within five minutes of meeting him I watched him make candid photographs with his flash just off Hollywood Blvd. This fall he dropped me a line to say he’d be in New York, so we met up for a few drinks where I suggested we record on episode. A few days later on Halloween, we met up at Tom’s place in Bushwick and talked about his photography, gear and Lars Tunebjork’s book Vinter, which is one of my favorites. It was the first time he’d seen the book, so we ended up having a nice chat about winter in Sweden.
