Matt’s Art Chat #20: Al Lapkovsky (PODCAST)

In this episode of Matt’s Art Chat, I am joined by photographer/creative retoucher Al Lapkovsky. Al is currently based in Riga, where he has been developing a personal style and developing process he defines as “social awareness photography.” One of his pet themes is his observation of how new technologies are affecting society and our relationships with one another. These included Disconnecting Connection, a series revolving around our use of smartphones, that went viral. To find out more about Al Lapkovsky, vist his website, https://www.begemotfoto.com/.
