Ed Kashi is featured on the newest “A Small Voice” podcast with Ben Smith. In this episode, Ed speaks about being all about the issues, dealing with an emotional fallout, and hitting a wall in Peru.
“…I’m asking people who are sick to let me into their lives. Like, what an a**hole if I do that and then I’m not 100% there! Because on some level those people don’t need another person with a camera. So I’d better have a damned good reason to be getting into their lives and then I need to treat that with dignity and respect and the sort of preciousness of this opportunity that they’re giving me. And if I’m not at 100%, there’s something not good about that.”
