The Photo Brigade Podcast

On this episode Robert chats with celebrity and political photojournalist Kris Connor. They grabbed a coffee and took a walk in Central Park and discussed Connor's career and what led him to covering the interesting mix of both politics and entertainment in our nation's capitol. Kris has a very unique story compared to most, if not all photojournalists as he was born with Achondroplasia, the most common type of dwarfism. We talk about how being a little person has helped his job as a photographer and how he's overcome obstacles over the years, including multiple limb-lengthening procedures as a child, that in the end gave him an extra 12 inches in height. We also discuss numerous stories he's been working on including his latest project called Polirazzi, that looks at the role celebrities play in today's politics. So sit back, relax, and enjoy this episode of The Photo Brigade Podcast!
