Join me in this episode of Populuxe as I reconnect with my former student and now accomplished architectural photographer Artur Pretto Junqueira. Together, we explore French philosopher René Girard's work on human desire and some of the famous and emerging Brazilian architectural practitioners. And surprise, surprise! We end up talking about New York City. But how not? This is where our paths crossed and where our lives changed.

Listen to this episode to find out more about Emily's object of desire and get an insider's view on what it means to maintain a creative practice as a writer in the art industry.
