Podcast: Martin Parr Apologizes, Male Doctors Try to Shame Their Female Peers, the Hippest Octogenarians

After 18 months, a campaign started by then 18-year old Mercedes Baptiste Halliday, a Black photo student in London, to stop the sales of a republication of Gian Butturini’s “London” by Martin Parr has come to and end. An official apology plus Parr’s request to destroy the remaining inventory (although publisher Damiani has apparently put the books on sale rather than destroyed them) has given Halliday a well-earned victory against racism and an entrenched “generation of white, middle-aged men who do what they want without any consequences.”

Plus, three male doctors create fake social media accounts to spy on female medical professionals for the purposes of moral judgement, some great photos of NEOWISE, and an octogenarian couple in Taiwan become the latest hit on Instagram.

We mention the following photographers, articles, and websites in this episode:
