His recent books for Aperture and Phaidon have garned critical praise, and in this interview with Martin Parr, we discuss these topics and more.

Photo Paper Explained, or How Felix Schoeller Has Been a Part of Your Life for the Past 100 Years – Photokina 2006

For the past 100 years much of the world market for the base of photography papers were all made by one firm, Felix Schoeller of Germany, and today they have two-thirds of the market! In this interview with Michael Szidat, of Felix Schoeller we learn of the changes in the paper industry as photography enters the digital age, but don't worry if you never heard of them, because while they create the paper bases for paper that might just come in Yellow, Greeen, Orange and other colored boxes, their name is never on the package. In the past, manufacturers coated their own light sensitive silver emulsions on the paper supplied by Felix Schoeller, but as any good OEM manufacturer would tell you, it's all behind the scenes!

Leica’s Newest Camera, the M8 Digital Rangefinder – Photokina 2006

Since 1914, for many photographers one name was synonymous with photography, and that was Leica. The original UR-Leica was invented by Oskar Barnack, and used a new film format for still photography, 35mm. The name Leica was derived from Ernst "LEItz CAmera," which became Leica. How would one of the most prestigious names in photography, creators of the camera used by many of the greatest photographers, grapple with the digital onslaught? With the Leica M8, and in this interview with Gero Furchheim of Leica Camera, AG, we learn about their newest addition to their storied line of cameras.  Recorded at the Photokina Conference in Köln, Germany, in October 2006 by Harris Fogel.
