Episode 3.1 – Hin Chua



Recorded September 28th, 2015 at Stockholm Studios in Bushwick, Brooklyn

Tom and I were enjoying our break when I received an email from Hin Chua letting me know he was going to visit New York. We exchanged a few emails and talked about meeting up, but I figured it was a good opportunity to record a show since I’ve always enjoyed his photography and taste in photobooks.

Hin is one of the photographers I met on Flickr back in the day. He’s someone I consider a real mentor (I call him sensei in the episode!) . He’s pointed me to a lot of good photography over the year and his thoughtful writing about his experiences, failures and motivations are always illuminating. During our conversation we discussed his project ‘After the Fall’ which he’s been working on for 10 years now. I was eager to find out if the project would ever end or if he planned on working on until he dies. I’m not going to spoil it for you, you’ll just have to listen to the episode to find out the answer.

For the book discussion, I brought Lago by Ron Jude, and The Last Cosmology by Kikuji Kawadawhich I picked up at the New York Art Book Fair. Both books are brilliant and offer plenty to discuss. Hin brought Colors by Yoshinori Mizutani, a great Japanese photographer whoseTumblr feed I’ve enjoyed over the years. It was a great selection for the start of the season.

    Really enjoyed the conversation, especially the discussion about balancing time, as well as, in general, the perspectival realism Hin can calibrate upon such murkily romantic pursuits as photographic magnum opi. Thanks, guys.
