The Nerdy Photographer Podcast

Feb 3, 2022

Can art be the moment in which something occurs? Or the feeling the documentation of that moment inspires? Both?

On this episode of the Nerdy Photographer Podcast, I speak with friend and art journalist, Helen Stoilas about Yves Klein's 1960 work, Leap Into the Void and the accompanying photographs by Harry Shunk and Janos Kender.

This conversation is at times bizarre, inspiring, and hilarious.
