New book published by Survival International
On a recent visit to Cartagena, Colombia — a city famed for its Spanish colonial architecture, Afro-Caribbean culture, and lush tropical beauty — photographer William Coupon abandoned his fancy photo gear for an iPhone.
“I like the fact that you’re really non-obtrusive. You just tap the glass and you’ve got your shot. And the quality is amazing.”
Coupon — whose work is on display this fall at the Dali International Photography Exhibition in Dali, China — spoke with LIFE about his trip, and how to get great pictures without using a “traditional” camera.
