This week I want to point out the easy availability of several photographer’s lectures and interviews.
The International Center of Photography has a large amount of material in both audio and video that could become a young photographer’s master class on line. I suggest starting with the Abelardo Morell Camera Obscura video from 2004.
AmericanSuburbX is a wonderful blog of interviews. Some writers are complaining about their lack of copyright agreements, but I’m loving their open access. Check out the essay on Robert Frank’s America.
A current interview with Frank Ockenfels 3 is over at A Photo Editor. Students may appreciate his candor about high school antics as he learned how to photograph at the expense of the school’s cheerleaders.
Here’s a pile of Polaroids that I shot with Frank Ockenfels 3 in Woodstock many years ago.
