1980’s Photography TV Show on YouTube – Still Holds Up (mostly)
Back in the mid 1980’s there was a TV show about photography, ‘World of Photography’ and it featured major photographers such as Annie Leibovitz and Gregory Heisler. Despite the photographic advances made in the 30 years after it first aired there’s some great, still-relevant content and entertaining 80’s throwbacks, not to mention some amazing special effects.
The show opener
From 1985 to 1991 over 175 half-hour episodes were produced including more than 450 story segments. About 200 of those archived stories are on a YouTube Channel aptly called “World of Photography”. Whoever got a hold of all this footage just wanted to share it, they are not monetizing the channel.
Whether you’re new to photography or a long time expert, you’re sure to enjoy and even learn something by watching it.
