Photo Editors Series – Gabriel Eisenmeier

The Photo Editors Series are conversations with well-known photo editors about how they view the media today, the role of visuals in reporting, the work they like to see, and advice for photographers on how best to connect with publishers.

Hosted by David Campbell and Ilvy Njiokiktjien, the series combines an overview of the contemporary media landscape with practical tips. The editors in the series speak as individuals rather than representatives of their organizations. In this tenth episode, we are speaking with Gabriel Eisenmeier of de Volkskrant, a daily newspaper in The Netherlands.
