Considering Art Podcast – Alan Gignoux, photographer

In this podcast, documentary photographer Alan Gignoux talks about his Huguenot ancestry, how he was hooked by photography, his work with refugees in the Middle East, how he became interested in environmental issues, and his Bruised Lands project that looks at four examples of relentless harvesting of natural assets around the world and the serious toll they have taken on both the local environment and its people.
