A photograph captures a moment in time preserving a memory forever. The photographic exhibit Hold Still by HRH Duchess of Cambridge is an example of how photography can ensure we don’t forget what’s important in life.

As we emerge from the pandemic, we bring our first series of Live Longer: The Podcast to a close, with conversations with a Pulitzer Prize winning photojournalist and eminent doctors and surgeons who use photography to enhance their own lives and that of their patients.

In episode 11 of the series, Prof Furnham told us that of all the various artistic disciplines, photographers live longest. In my conversation with Dan White, I discover why this is so. This episode also sets us up for the finale of season 1 of Live Longer: The Podcast.
