Jane Stockdale’s photography is pretty breathtaking. She hasn’t just got an obvious technical ability and compositional eye, but also a diversity and vibrancy in her subject matter. The idea of having a job where you can be with a professional footballer in a James Bond tank, or a Japanese bar as someone poses with an AK-47 or sitting inches away from Iggy Pop’s iconic stomach is one that I’m sure many are envious of.
Jane was our host for our last evening of talks and her half an hour is jammed packed with stories, musings and of course stunning photographs. Vimeo and iTunes linksare of course available from the talks page.
