Here's a thought . . . (Every episode, full archive)

Short videos with snippets, fragments, morsels, and tidbits from Brooks' fertile (and sometimes swiss-cheesy) brain.

Usually just a minute or so.

Pretty much daily.

Always about photography and the art life.

 

Most recent video is at the top. If you want to "binge view" and catch up with them all, use the "Link to the previous video" at the bottom of each video's page.
