Working: Paul Mpagi Sepuya on the Inherent Intimacy of Photography
Sunday, 16 August
This week, host Rumaan Alam talks to artist Paul Mpagi Sepuya about his unique style of intimate studio photography. In the interview, Paul breaks down the difference between artist and photographer, shares what it was like to get recognized for his work early in life, and explains why critical success doesn’t always translate to monetary success.
After the interview, Rumaan and co-host Isaac Butler talk about why it’s so difficult to sum up visual art with language.
