In this episode, I talk to award-winning street photographer Gulnara Samoilova. Gulnara risked her life photographing the September 11th attacks in 2001 and received numerous awards for the photographs she took on that day.
Her ability to photograph people both candidly and authentically has made her a powerful source of inspiration in the street
Gulnara and I talk about:
- The struggles and joys of being a street photographer
- The scrutiny she faced as a female street photographer and how she overcame self-doubt
- Her artist residency in the United States, which is meant to empower and support female street photographers from all walks of life
& much more!
Gulnara is a force to be reckoned with. She’s persistent, creative, and caring. I’m amazed by her story and hope that you find a lot of inspiration in her perspective on life.
