In this issue, it was a real treat for Bob and I to speak with documentary photographer and filmaker, Stuart Edwards. Stuart is based in Glasgow, a city full of interesting characters with stories aplenty. As a filmaker, Stuart’s approach to street photography is unique, with a focus on filling each frame with a narrative. The way he describes how he captures a scene will no doubt give you some ideas for your next street photography project. Stuart is also the creator of a stunning mini documentary about a fellow street photographer named Robert Blomfield that’s one of the best we’ve ever seen. We were glad to get a chance to talk about that experience as well. We know you’re going to thoroughly enjoy listening to this month’s interview with Stuart, viewing his images and watching his documentary about Robert Blomfield.
