After speaking with Sam Haskins son yesterday, my curiosity was piqued about his fathers work so I took time last evening to watch/listen to this lecture Ludwig did about his fathers life and photography career. It is lengthy but I have to admit it captured my attention, I learned a great deal and I just couldn’t stop listening! For any aspiring photographer, photography lover, Sam Haskins fan, this lecture is a must listen/watch.(I know the word ‘lecture’ may sound dull to some but trust me this is far from it!) Lx
An in depth talk about photographer Sam Haskins by his son Ludwig, part of the #picbod series held at Coventry University.

“Our primary device is [photo]montage…[but] we do not neglect Construction. Ours are eye-catching posters which, one might say, are designed to shock. We deal with the material in a free manner… disregarding actual proportions…turning figures upside-down; in short, we employ everything that can make a busy passerby stop in their tracks.”
-Vladimir Stenberg (1928)
