If given the chance to go to space, most photographers would probably gear up. But Japanese billionaire Yusaku Maezawa visited the International Space Station with his iPhone, and still got some stunning images and footage in the process. The best camera is the one you have with you?
Also in this episode, photojournalist David Butow chronicles the Trump presidency from election to insurrection in his book “Brink,” Mary Berridge captures portraits of autism in “Visible Spectrum,” Getty Images gets ready to go public (again), Instagram suspends the @metaverse account of artist Thea-Mai Baumann, and Cook and Jenshel capture a gorgeous photo of the Bryant Park Ice Rink in the New Yorker.
