Natalie Massanet was on to something when she founded Net-A-Porter, the online luxury retailer wrapped in a media brand. She understood that she wasn’t just selling clothes, she was selling a story. Massanet followed her first stroke of genius with another, the Net-A-Porter brother site, Mr. Porter. This week, on Mr. Porter The Journal, Mr. Chris Elvidge interviews Photojournalist and Change-Maker, Mr. Sebastian Meyer who has lived in Erbil, the capital of Iraqi Kurdistan, since 2009. He runs Metrography, Iraq’s first photography agency, which he helped establish and which now represents more than 60 photographers. In the Mr. Porter interview, Mr. Meyer speaks eloquently about empowering a nation of photographers, the curiosity that fuels his work, and the upside of letting romance lead the way.
