Each time I’ve met up with Mikael it’s been memorable. I have a small collection of his books sitting next to my desk and I always pick them up when I need a change of pace. His photographs take me on the road and slow life down. It’s a good place to visit, especially living in New York. In these episode we discussed the road, shooting Polaroids, Tumblr and Mike Brodie.
