Welcome to Viewfinder a series of conversations that share the insights, challenges, and experiences of talented creators around the world.

 

These conversations are a lens into the lives of people who ignored dogma and followed their dreams. Their stories aren't polished, censored, or fabricated. They're real, personal, and motivated with the intent to encourage creativity.

Viewfinder isn't about asking predictable, prewritten questions. It's about injecting genuine curiosity into an engaging conversation.

Conversations will be published sporadically throughout Viewfinder's Fall 2017 season, which starts October 13 and ends November 23.
