Interview of the year
I'm interviewing Robert Pledge tomorrow. For anyone interested in photojournalism Robert is the go-to man with 40 years in the field. Co-founder and President of Contact Press Images (New York) Robert has edited many highly-acclaimed books and curated exhibitions throughout the world, in Amsterdam, Bamako, Beijing, Berlin, Brussels, Dhaka, Lausanne, London, Madrid, Mexico City, New Dehli, New York, Paris, and Tokyo. A major presence in the photographic community, he received the Overseas Press Club's "Olivier Rebbot Award" for the book Red-Color News Soldier, in 2004, which he authored with Li Zhensheng. He commutes between Paris and New York and is in Australia for the Reportage 2010 Retrospective . Am one very happy journalist!
