NPR reminds us of their interview with Larry Sultan on the occasion of Sultan’s death earlier this week. (Click on the player below to listen to their Fresh Air interview.)
The influential photographer Larry Sultan died of cancer on Sunday. He was 63. In remembrance, we listen to a 1989 interview with him in which we discuss “Pictures From Home,” his decade-long project chronicling his father’s job loss and the effects it had on the family.
The project began when Sultan’s father, Irving, was forced into early retirement after serving as vice president of the Schick Safety Razor Co. It evolved and expanded to include video stills from his family’s home movies and an ongoing commentary by both of Sultan’s parents.
