Hungry Eye talks with Howard Schatz, a man driven to capture the stillness in human motion, about his latest project – documenting the brutal humanity possessed by boxers, frozen in time. We interview Charlie Paul, who is bringing art to life in For No Good Reason, a feature film 15 years in the making about the work of illustrator Ralph Steadman. We hear from photographic artist Robert Burley about his project to document the death of the analogue industry, and Patty Schemel and P. David Ebersole – the star and director respectively of grunge rock doc Hit So Hard. We also catch up with five image-makers who are determined to document weddings in ways that show a much-derided genre in a new, vital light.
