"I wasn't going down there as a spectator" - an Interview with Adrian O. Walker

Recorded on April 24th, 2015

Photographer and St. Louis native Adrian O. Walker came to campus as the featured artist in our panel discussion, Photography as a Medium of Change: Practice, Politics, and History, in late April, 2015. While on campus Mr. Walker kindly agreed to an interview with Matthew Fox-Amato, Andrew W. Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow in the Modeling Interdisciplinary Inquiry Program, on chronicling the Ferguson protests as a citizen artist, the beauty of urban decay when examined and inscripted by the artists of graffiti and photography, and his imperative that his camera is "a tool, not a weapon."
