Photo Brigade Podcast #112 with Kevin Larkin

By Robert Caplin


Kevin Larkin Kevin Larkin has worked as a freelance photographer based in Dubai, Washington, D.C. and New York City, covering news, politics and sports. After ten years working as a photographer, he worked as a photo editor for The New York Times for twelve years. While there, he worked on both teams which won both Pulitzer Prizes for Photography for their coverage of the attacks on 9/11, and the war in Afghanistan. He moved to Abu Dhabi in 2008 to help launch The National newspaper, where he worked as a photo editor for five years. He recently returned to freelance photography.


On this episode I chat with my long lost photo editor Kevin Larkin who worked the New York Times Picture Desk while I interned over a decade ago. We talk about Kevin’s career path as both a photographer and editor, his move to Dubai to start a newspaper, and his transition back to freelance photography back in the US. Sit back, relax, and enjoy this episode of The Photo Brigade Podcast!
