Photographic Philosophy   Podcast
Episode 002 – Megan Lewis

Breaking a path through the male dominated photojournalist industry of Australia’s newspapers, being featured on the cover of Time magazine and covering some of the most important political moments in Australian history sounds like a great career. Add to that list winning prestigious photographic awards and spending 8 years living and photographing the Martu people of the Great Sandy Desert. Publishing a book titled ‘Conversations with The Mob’ and then being asked to return to these remote communities to assist in health and education. Megan Lewis has some incredible stories to tell.


Throughout this conversation, I felt myself being drawn into Megan’s stories and taken on a journey with her rather than just being the one asking the questions.


Megan’s Photographic Philosophy is incredibly interesting, as is the work that she continues to produce. Recently Megan has also begun running some of the most unique photography workshops encompassing her outlook on natural health and wellbeing.

    Hi Joel,

    Both myself and photographer wife listened to the Megan Lewis podcast last night. What a wonderful story, wonderful talent and incredible commitment to a community. I was given a copy of ‘Conversations with the mob’ by UWA Press when it first came out as I have shot seven cookbooks for the same publisher. As I was listening to the podcast I was turning pages in Megan’s book. A great experience I have to say. At times It felt as if I was actually out in the dessert.

    So many things Megan said really struck an accord with me. Thank you so much for the opportunity to listen to Megan. Really enjoying the podcasts and looking forward to the next.
