With the anniversary of the September 11 attacks upon us again, those of us in New York City, particularly, think back to that terrible day with great sadness, but also with a certain resolve and a sense of pride for the way we handled this tragedy, how we came together to support each other while fear, confusion, and anger swarmed. Mostly, we remember the friends, neighbors, and co-workers who lost their lives, and the families forever broken. In September 2017, we published an episode of...

On this week’s episode of the B&H Photography Podcast, we welcome the directors of Lost Rolls America, Ron...

We get a sense of how each came to their product, developed it, and are trying to market it. First, we speak with Sam Cornwell,...
