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).

Some really great stuff in this thread, definitely subscribing! I selfishly wish your work was on Flickr just so I could follow it in my daily feed there

I really like the ones with the particularly well seen juxtapositions that take a moment to sink in, and the shots where you've captured mirrored patterns or postures in the mix of daily life.

Thanks so much and I just don't do flicker. Sorry.
But stayed tuned here. I will keep posting when I have new stuff to post.

Fantastic!!

Your pictures remind me of what I think Bresson once said, that what is in the background was always more important to him than the subject itself.

Just back from a commercial shoot in the Big Easy. Got in on Wed afternoon and got out on the streets a bit Wed night. Shoot was Thursday and got out again on the streets Thursday late afternoon, though dog tired from the full day shoot and flew back home today. Heres some stuff from the Big Easy.
