Episode 174: Benjamin Swett

Benjy  Diane Arbus’s old contact sheets include images she never meant us to see, so would perusing them violate her rights as an artist? Photographer Benjamin Swett says he’d look at them with pleasure, and he makes a persuasive case that he’s not going to hell. Plus, the invention of the circular saw and celibacy reconsidered: surprisingly related topics. A conversation at Planthouse Gallery with heavenly music from Stephanie Coleman.
