EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW with a Former Chicago Sun Times Photographer Al Podgorski
I got to sit down via SKYPE with a former Chicago Sun Times Photographer to get his side of the story. I wanted to hear from him what it was like to have the entire photo staff cut in the matter of minutes.
As I have come to know, many of the photographers who were fired have been with the paper for more than 20 years. Could you imagine what it must have been like to have such a solid job for so long only to be let go so abruptly.
Al is a fantastic photographer and person, I hope he is able to find a way to continue shooting and creating images.
You can hear the hurt in his voice, it is almost like he lost a loved one and in some ways he did.
If you found this to be an interesting interview one of the other 28 photographers who was fired is a Fro Reader and expressed interest in talking to be.
