Tape no.1: George Slade


For Tape no.1 I sat down with writer, curator, historian, walking photographic encyclopedia, and guinea pig, George Slade. We talked about his history in photography, his passion for the medium and his camaraderie with Minnesota photographers. Recorded during Click! Photography Festival, October 2018. All conversations are recorded face-to-face. These are… the Diffusion Tapes.
