London based reportage and documentary photographer Arnhel De Serra joins the podcast to talk about how he went from a kid growing up in the country outside of Brighton with an affinity for guitar and Carlos Santana, to finding a camera in his hand and a desire to capture the world around him, shooting everything from the mundane to the magnificent. Although photography began to help shape Arnhel's life in his college years and began to replace the guitar as his favorite creative outlet, it wasn't until he stumbled upon some books by photographers like Larry Clark and Robert Frank that he realized the true power of the medium and what he wanted to do with his life. He has gone on to have a successful career, working with clients in the editorial and commercial worlds and developing a very unique style. During our conversation we discuss his somewhat absurdist approach to documenting the world around him and the idea of comedy in the still image, what it's been like for him tying to translate his work to the commercial space, where he draws the most creative inspiration from, and the advice he gives to others trying to pursue a creative existence.
