Today’s episode broadens our normal photographic sphere as we discuss ophthalmic photography and how the eye’s own optical system is used in conjunction with camera equipment—some techniques very common, some not so—to examine the interior of the eye and to diagnose illnesses that go far beyond problems with vision.

Simply put, I love the photographs in the book, Public Relations, which was created to accompany a 1977 Museum of Modern Art exhibition of the same name. The photos are a selection created from Garry Winogrand’s work in the 1960s and 1970s that show, in his own words, “the effect of media on events.” Yes, the fact that he was ahead of his time, incorporating ideas of Marshall McLuhan and others...
