10 Jun Podcast: Rogue Hippos! & Photographing During a Dictatorshop – Jason Florio
Today two stories featuring humanitarian photojournalist Jason Florio. In the first we talk about a photo expedition he took with his wife and business partner Helen Jones-Florio along the Gambia River, which sounds beautifully romantic and exotic in equal measure, but doesn’t come without its wildlife challenges as you’re about to find out. And then in part two of our conversation, we discuss moving to Africa, living initially under a regime that didn’t encourage open documentary work or journalism or indeed anyone who might want to talk of uncomfortable truths in a country which has the motto, progress, peace and prosperity. Listen to the podcast at The Photography Daily Show
