I’m getting reacquainted with one of my favorite photographers, John Isaac. I had the privilege of interviewing him with M. on our WKRZ show (yeah, a while ago). He was brought in by the Arts House to show some of his works.  In a nutshell, he spent 10 years as a UN Photographer between 1978-1998, documenting major conflicts around the world including the killing fields of Pol Pot, famine in Ethiopia , and the major wars during that period. I like him because he has an amazing ability to capture the human spirit, especially in the context of the mundane. He was also one of those people who had such a warm, generous and sincere aura that you can’t help being charmed and a bit surprised that someone who has been exposed to worst of humanity can still have so much spirit. Check him out.
