Hi friends, I’m Blue Mitchell, photographer, publisher of Diffusion Annual, and now podcaster. Welcome to the Diffusion Tapes, a podcast where I chat with artists, curators and writers working in the field of fine art photography. More specifically, these tapes are conversations with people that I’ve befriended on my journey as an artist and publisher. In these conversations I get to learn a little more about these folks that I admire and respect and I’m inviting you into the conversation.

All conversations are recorded face-to-face.
