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).

It's nice to see a cohesive style and vision, as opposed to an assortment of great but disconnected images.

The Husker Du image is brilliant ... just in the way the guy mimics the painting behind him in almost every way ....

Deluxe salad is humorous , but in away that does not make fun of the guy ...great shot .


The other images of reflections have so much in them .With the different layers my eyes are led all through the frame and then there is something that I had not noticed that reveals it self and grabs my attention ..... great images ....

Thanks so much and I wasn't making fun of the guy as much as saying something about our society as a whole.

Can you please expand on what you see as "cohesive style and a vision". I would love to have your thoughts on what you are seeing and others may be missing (me). It would help me to hopefully develop a style and vision.

Excellent set of pictures!

AirFrog! Very nice collection of "BAM!" in-your-face visuals and quiet moments in the reflection.

cheers

I'm working on which one I like the most. Maybe the kid hanging by his fingertips.

They're all great.

I like that "Husker Du" shot from the first set. The man looks like illustration behind him. The best part is that he's drinking a Pabst blue ribbon beer!

Is anyone taking Bruce Gilden serious here?! He's an absolute fool (and so is VICE) to think he can comment on someone else's visual appeal...

Photography is an exploration of ones own vision and shouldn't appeal to some self proclaimed "expert" or anyone else for that matter.

At the risk of sounding redundant, Very nice work! It is difficult to imagine you didn't pose the Husker Du at the bar!

All delightful and thought-provoking, any of which I'd be very very happy to have taken. Want also to mention your timing is remarkable.

Thanks David. Yeah it is just amazing that just as I walked by the open window he shifted into that position. And that he did it when I was in the right place in relationship to the bear. Got lucky....
