This week’s Guest Feature builds both on the way we’ve been experiencing the classes so far and on the subject matter. We’ve considered storytelling in various guises , telling our stories and those of other people but this week there are two subjects and two practices but only one film.
The movie is about the Photographer Ian Macdonald but the movie is made by his son, the photographer/curator and now film-maker Jamie Macdonald. So its kind of a pat your head and rub your tummy at the same time exercise – please tweet your thoughts, comments and questions on the movie, which is at the same time the work of both Ian and Jamie – the story of a story-teller.
Tag your tweets #Phonar (Jamie is @jamemac , Francis Hodgeson is @HodgsonF) and do a Phonar search on Twitter to tune into the conversation.

Its another full one so lets go to work –
We are in conversation this week with Photographer Sara Davidmann and Photographer, Educator and Entrepreneur Shahidul Alam of the Pathshala Institute, Bangladesh. Two very different practitioners but both continuing to build on our discussions around the gravity of the role of storyteller and picking up on themes brought up by Fred Ritchin and David Campbell.
Usual drill – as you listen please tweet your notes and comments using the #phonar hashtag and don’t forget to storify the global set of notes/tweets afterwards.
Images discussed here are at Sara’s website http://saradavidmann.com/
