Here at Albam we have always celebrated creativity. ‘Albam Talks’ is a series in which we take a bit of time out to talk to creative individuals. With no set theme, we pick their brains for insight into what it means to be creative in their world. For the first installment we explore the minds of writers, discovering what makes them tick. Interviewed by Nathan Sharp alongside friend and long time collaborator John Spinks behind the lens, we hope you enjoy ‘Albam Talks: Writers’.
