otp-56-soth-620x387 Big show this week as Bill and Jeffery question what happens when it’s the process used to create the art that’s interesting, not the result. Also, where do we draw the line between photo manipulation and photo journalism? Plus, questions from the OTP Google+ community and listener-suggested Alec Soth is our Photographer of the Week.
