PopPhoto: Journeys of a Lifetime

Photograph © Jim Lo Scalzo-All Rights Reserved

Popular Photography magazine has published the article "Journeys of a Lifetime" describing how four very different trips change the lives of four very different photographers. The four photographers are Greg Bleakney, Fiona Aboud, Doug Menuez, and Jim Lo Scalzo.

It's always interesting to read how other photographers started their careers, what makes them click, what are their passions and how their styles evolved over time. Fiona Aboud's story details how a documentary portrait photographer found her signature style amid the chaos of her native country's Carnival, while Jim Lo Scalzo's story tells us how a travel-addicted photojournalist learned to stop moving and embrace the calm.
