Frank Jackson on Street Photography I am happy and excited to announce a new RFF forum on Street Photography mentored by Frank Jackson, one of the best producers of analog B/W prints I have ever seen. His shows include the Open Shutter Gallery, Heriard-Cimino Gallery, and Ogden Museum of Southern Art. His images are in the collections of Smithsonian Ogden Museum of Southern Art, California Afro American Museum and Xavier University New Orleans LA. He has worked for or has been featured with Visa Card, Xerox, UCLA, Eric Owen Moss, Architect, Hasselblad Forum (cover),Gordon Parks, Muhammed Ali, Million Man March Wash. DC, Lionel Hampton, jazz legion photographer , 1995-2002, Stevie Wonder, B+W Magazine (British version) twice, Rangefinder Magazine, Dahon Bicycles, Arelli Wheels, Real Product Design, Automobile Club of Southern California. Frank's online images are at fotographz.500px.com and fotographzfrankjackson.tumblr.com . "While on this diverse photographic journey…I have to say during this whole time my love for fine art black and white photography kept growing. I always found time to shoot in different cities and my own personal work…this has sustained me through some very tough times. As of 2012, with the help of a very good friend I maintain a state-of-the-art dream darkroom. The darkroom helps greatly in the on-going practice of understanding “the light”, being able to process film and print drives me to keep my digital photography “organic”. I’m curious visually and shooting what’s, what on the street feeds this curiosity. Everyday I walk out my front door to “see” the world with a digital camera, a film camera, the “cup” and an open mind (mostly).

Nice shots. I like the first and last best. You've got a few bourgeois images

Thank you, those two were my favourites as well. I am currently painting the last one, but have a nice large print of the first. Do you feel these are bourgeois? They weren't intended to be class driven.

Nice set - my favourites are the first, fourth (the dog in the window) and the last.

I like them all. Not sure if they are all working together as a series but you have some wonderful images in this collection. I really like #1 a lot but I like them all. In # 1 I really like the tension created by the wavy line in the surf and the kids right at the line and the more graceful sweeping line formed by the tire tracks leading to the lady in white. Both of the motion shots work really well slaps.

Very true, they're quite random, they were meant to be paired (1-2, 3-4, 5-6) but I didn't make that very obvious at all.

Glad you liked #1 too, this is my favourite image. Weird because I think you need to see it big to appreciate the details. The kids building a sand castle right at the waters edge, and the waves melting it to nothing again! Whilst mum sits and reads her book, carefree. I have it at 20" because it makes me laugh

Haha, no offense, but with bourgeois I referred to another thread here: "Sharpness is a bourgeois concept"

Really, they're great shots!

Don't worry, you didn't offend me, I was only interested in what you meant . Silly me, to forget a classic HCB quote, eh! I fully understand what you mean now. For many years, I have been against exacting sharpness and (physical) detail. It does not interest me. I use older lenses and like grain, plus, my technique is often sloppy
