He also commemorates those photographers we have lost in the past year.

Thank you, Grant for an excellent collection of informative & thoughtful podcasts from the shed. I had to look up what you meant about the Magnum issue and now see the outrageous case of the work in Bangkok, 1989 for which the photographs were available for licence for 30 years. It would be challenging to hear Photographer Harvey in your segment – ‘What does Photography mean to me.’ I like your closing remarks and in turn must ask you to take care during this difficult period. I look forward to hearing you again in 2021.
Thank you for your kind comments and positive feedback. Best wishes Grant
