One of the best photography podcasts on iTunes is The Candid Frame hosted by Ibarionex R. Perello. If you haven’t tuned in yet, then let this interview with En Foco’s executive director and photographer Miriam Romais be your first introduction.
I recently met Miriam at the NYC opening of the Connections art show at the Jenkins Johnson gallery. We’d been communicating via Facebook for a while and I was excited to finally meet her in person. I’d long been enamored and inspired by the mission of En Foco, a non profit organization that supports contemporary fine art and documentary photographers of Latino, African, Asian and Native American descent. Miriam’s boundless energy and radiant personality really impressed me and I was flattered to hear she was a fan of Dodge & Burn.
This woman is so cool… not only is she a brilliant photographer but she’s also an avid motorcycle rider. The podcast is extremely informative as Miriam discusses her life roles as a photographer, curator and even her work as a motorcycle safety instructor. And as En Foco’s head honcho, she gives us striving photographers some great advice on submitting work to competitions like their June 20th Portfolio Review Session and the New Works Photography Awards Fellowship.
