As a photographer, scott b davis is known for his stunning, shadowy platinum prints, which you really have to see in person to get the full effect. He's also the founder and executive director of the Medium Festival of Photography, which is not only one of my favorite events of the entire year, but also directly contributed to the genesis of this very podcast. In our conversation, scott and I discussed his work, what drew him to the platinum process, and how discovery plays a central role in his art and artmaking. In the second segment, scott chose Mexico as his topic, a place that's geographically close to us here in San Diego, even if it sometimes feels psychologically far away.
