Default Interview with new Magnum-ite Simon Wheatley

Brit Simon Wheatley, born in Singapore of an Indian mother and English father squeezed into Magnum after trying hard for 4 years. Fascinating, gut-honest, low-keyed interview with Martin Fuchs, current Magnum intern who has an excellent PJ site. Here's the URL:

Also take a look at Whitley's pictures at the Magnum site. The guy is a Leica shooter (hence a preponderance of OOF close subjects due to Leica M lenses' inability to close focus ;o)) Mostly wayward youths in London, bad Morrocan youths in MAsterdam, druggies, that kind of thing, shot with great sensitivity and skill. Sort of like a gentler, less contrasty Alex Webb.
