When Ed Kashi was a 19-year-old photography student studying abroad in Bath, England, he stumbled into a method of photography that would later accompany him through many stages of his career: capturing “abandoned moments.” Defined as images taken without looking through the viewfinder, Kashi’s method relies on intuition and spontaneity to capture unique and “from the hip” moments. He’s used this method of photography from his early start as a photojournalist, stalking the streets of San Francisco, to assignments all over the world documenting sociopolitical issues with National GeographicThe New York Times, and more.

Issue One of The RAW Society Magazine will feature an interview with Ed on this innovative approach to photography – and the advice he has for aspiring photographers of all ilk.
