Curating Photography: An interview with Tim Clark

In a world saturated with imagery, the role of curator is becoming ever more vital. Curating Photography explores a changing industry, through conversations with those who shape what we see.

Team Loupe: Luke Archer

Team Loupe is a series of interviews with the photographers behind Loupe Magazine.

Interview by Harry Flook –

Luke Archer is both Loupe overlord and a photographer in his own right, as well as being the most sincere creative I’ve had the good fortune to work with. Finishing an MA in photography seemed like cause enough for a conversation about the subject of that study, and a chance to ask for advice for photographers looking to get published, an area he’s well versed in. Luke’s ongoing project, The Rock, records the little reported British territory of Gibraltar, as it prepares for an upheaval in the shape of Brexit. Having already received positive publicity from the BBC, Huck and Creative Review, the project is set to be a significant piece of social documentary.

Curating Photography: An Interview With Zelda Cheatle

In a world saturated with imagery, the role of curator has become ever more vital. In this new series from Loupe we explore the changing industry of curation, through conversations with those at the forefront.

Interview by Maria Giorgia Lenzi –

In this brief interview, I spoke to curator and editor Zelda Cheatle. With over 35 years experience in the industry, Zelda has a valuable perspective. We discuss the essential skills of curation, digital consumption of photography, and her positive view of the industry.

Team Loupe: Álvaro Martínez García

Team Loupe is a series of interviews with the photographers behind Loupe Magazine.

Interview by Harry Flook –

Álvaro Martínez García studied journalism in Spain, before a move to photography and England. His masters project is shaping up to be an offbeat response to his family archive, uncovering the story of Álvaro’s grandfather, a man with Spain’s most common surname, before he is lost to anonymity. García García is a heartfelt plea for us all to look closer to home and history. As Álvaro nears the end of his masters study, we discuss the development of his photographic practice, his view on changing family archives, and his plans for the near future.
