Photographers Speak

November 22, 2009

This week I  want to point out the easy availability of several photographer’s lectures and interviews.

First, one can easily search a name on YouTube and come up with some amazing video source material. Try searching for Garry Winogrand, one of our greatest observers of gestures and expressions.

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.
