This episode Sharron talks with Dirk Claus, a multimedia journalist from Berlin and former Asia photo editor for stern magazine in Hong Kong and Bangkok. During his time in Asia he built up a wide network of contacts and recently started a blog www.asiajournalist.com curating photography and multimedia journalism all over Asia. It’s a fantastic resource and Dirk points readers to well known stories and photographers but also lesser known ones that are really fascinating but don’t perhaps make it to mainstream international media - so it’s really filling an important, interesting gap. Dirk talks about what he thinks are the interesting practitioners and trends in Asia right now. There’s also lot’s of news this week, and DJ Clark joins us to fill us in on that.
