Cameras are designed to mimic the human eye, and at a glance, they seem to be very similar. Digging deep into the images that each create, we discover that cameras  exceed the human eye in many ways--and fall very short in others.

In this episode, we profile three of the world's most important photographers:

  • Mary Ellen Mark. A documentary photographer who captured intimate and candid portraits of people around the world, sharing their lives with millions who would otherwise never be exposed to their living conditions.
  • David LaChapelle. A fine art photographer hand-picked by Andy Warhol, he brings Renaissance-era storytelling and symbolism to modern photography. Plus, he shoots celebrities.
  • Yuri Arcurs. Probably the best selling photographer of all time, you see his work everywhere but you probably don't know his name. He's a stock photographer, who started only about a decade ago, but now claims to sell 4 million pictures per year.

Einstein sticking his tongue out. A vulture waiting for a starving child to die. Marilyn Monroe's skirt blowing up. The desperate dust bowl mother with her two kids.

These are some of the most famous photos ever taken, but none of them are what you imagine. We dig deep into the stories behind each photo, their photographers, and their subjects.

We investigate photo fads, starting with photographing dead people in the early days of film. In the 80s, we dig into Glamour Shots (and interview several victims) and those awful Olan Mills "floating heads" double exposures. We explore the history of HDR, and how a very practical technology became terribly abused. Then, we explore the origin of selfies, selfie sticks, and duckface.
