My Interview with World Vision Photographer Jon Warren (Plus: Some of His Favorite Images)

I love interviewing artists. And I’ve enjoyed a wild array of unforgettable interviews. Some of them have puzzled me. Some have inspired me. Some have become close friends.

But few of those opportunities have been as exciting as this one…

On the job for Seattle Pacific University’s Response magazine, I had the privilege of meeting Jon Warren, director of photography for World Vision. He spent more than an hour showing me some of his most memorable photographs and telling me about the people, the crises, and the wonders captured there.

Now you can read parts of our conversation.

Even better: Here is a gallery of some of his favorite images, complete with descriptions from our conversation.
