San Diego is a town chock full of talented photographers. From the photojournalists at our local newspapers to the locals who shoot for national magazines like Rolling Stone and Sports Illustrated, to the hipster music fans who tote their Holgaroids and Dianas to local shows, and the street photographers who spend hours exploring our city, this is a region with a lot of photographic energy.

For the full text of the Q&A, as well as a selection of Mallams’ images, head over to Credentialed,
