About Talking Pictures

This website brings together edited interviews with photographers and photo-festival directors around the world. Undertaken by Alasdair Foster, many of the earlier interviews were originally commissioned by PhotoWorld magazine for publication in the Chinese language. This is the first time they have been made available in English. The later interviews are Talking Pictures originals.

The interviews are made available free of charge and free of advertising as an educational resource open to all. One interview is published each week.

The copyright in the images remains with the individual photographers and any use must first be agreed in writing by the photographer concerned. If you are interested in republishing any of these interviews – especially if this is in a language other than Chinese or English – please send details to Alasdair Foster through the contact page.

Thank you

Alasdair Foster would like to express his sincere thanks to all those who have agreed to be interviewed and made their inspiring images available here. It is their imagination, hard work and generosity that has made this web project possible.
