Durbin is proud of his shutterbug moniker, and never leaves home without a camera.

Fort Wayne resident Mike Durbin may spend his nights as webmaster and assistant systems manager for the Journal Gazette, but his off hours are devoted to photographing the world he lives in.

Born in Kentucky, Durbin came to the area eight years ago for college, and decided to make it his home.

To gain insight on what drives his passions and exactly where they lead him, WBOI's Julia Meek caught up with Mike in between photo sessions by Zoom to discuss how this type of storytelling, on and off the clock, has shaped that world and defines hs sense of place.

You can connect with Mike and see more of his work, including the new calendar series, at his website.

A Fort Wayne native, Julia is a radio host, graphic artist, and community volunteer, who has contributed to NIPR both on- and off-air for forty years. Besides being WBOI's arts & culture reporter, she currently co-produces and hosts Folktales and Meet the Music.
