NPR Voice (And Photo-Nut) Alex Chadwick


In Charlottesville to assist with the Look3 Festival of the Photograph,  Alex Chadwick hangs out on a downtown  porch chatting  with WMRA's Martha Woodroof .  Alex, a long-time NPR host and reporter, has also long been a photography lover. He's been quietly dropping in on the Look3 events for a while.

He's been a news host on almost every flagship NPR program and was the key reporter with the National Geographic Radio Expeditions series.  He's now a radio independent producer. 

He tells us about photography and also confides the sad personal back story of "The Descent,"  a recent whitewater expedition in his own life.
