Episode 12 Origins: Thomas Roma – Part 1

“There’s this expression, ‘The Decisive Moment,’ I’m sure it functioned for a while, but the question in a photograph isn’t when, it’s why…I want people to look at my photographs and the ‘why’ is there, it’s how I teach photography, it’s all one thing for me.” Thomas Roma has been a teacher and mentor to many photographers, including me. His list of accomplishments, which includes fourteen and counting monographs, is far too long to even try to include here, but you can check them out on his website linked below. This episode went long so it will be in two parts.
