The second video podcast from the Filmwasters features two London exhibitions (Matt Stuart & Lillian Bassman), a peek into the mind of a Canadian inventor, a tutorial on how to backwards peel instant film to give cool borders & a look at the latest book from Fazal Sheikh. Ed’s exhibition buddies are Jay & Rich with assistance from Joe, Emma & Nina (it’s a family affair).
Featuring & filmed by Ed Wenn, Sean Rohde & François Laverdure.

Ed, Leon & Damion are joined by Ailsa McWhinnie – photographer, freelance journalist, author, former editor of Black & White Photography magazine and mad Brighton & Hove Albion fan. There’s a lot of photo talk and one spectacular sneeze. Ed’s fave street photographer, Matt Stuart, gets another look in as does the Arena Group, Jobo & Fujifilm. It’s been a long time since the last podcast. Apologies for that, but we’re doing our best to make up for the gap by producing two in as many weeks. The same cast will reconvene for a second episode in a week’s time.
Faves/picks/recommendations this time round are as follows:
- Ailsa’s latest book, Travel Photography Masterclass: Joe Cornish, Charlie Waite, David Ward and Others is available for pre-order.
- Ailsa sung the praise of the book, On Being a Photographer: A Practical Guide by David Hurn & the late, great Bill Jay.
- Leon recommends the wonderful portraits that Vicky Slater produces (see examples above) & the street photography of Nick Turpin.
- Ed raved about the recent publication of what seems to be the collected works of the wonderful, Fazal Sheikh.
- Damion recommended two Birmingham-based photographers: Vanley Burke (short bio here) and George Hallett.
