Episode 072: Piper Carter – Part 1

March 20, 2009

Today is part 1 of our interview with fashion photographer Piper Carter. Piper is the kind of person who tells it like she sees it. As an African American woman in the world of fashion photography, she’s had to grow a thick skin, step up to the plate, and do twice as good as her male counterparts, or Caucasian female counterparts, in order to get to where she is. In this segment of her interview, Piper shares how she started out as a theater major (dancer and performer) and Howard University, before changing her major to photography while a junior. She talks about the importance of being in touch with one’s culture, as well as being exposed to other cultures. And she gives us profound insight on the power of ideas. Be sure to tune in next week for part 2.

As I mention in this intro to this episode, it’s been a while since I’ve broken up an episode into two parts. I want to know from you what you think about doing that routinely. I’m toying with the idea of keeping the podcasts lengths to the 25 to 30 minute range. That would mean making many (if not all) of our episodes 2-parters. Tell me what you think.
