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).

So sweet if someone asks to take their picture...

Last year twice I have unknown kids taking space in front of me and waiting for me to take their pictures.

One of them:


For my own street photography I'm not a fan of blown to full screen faces with zero content.
I prefer to have some.

But if person is special for me, I'll ask to get it.

Wow, that one is tops shiro_kuro! A lot of good and very inspirational stuff in this thread. In that light, posting my own stuff is a bit daunting. Quantity over quality in my case:

Sorry for a bit of a bombing run...



















...but looking at these it seems I may get quite close, but I'm obviously not a Gilden 'in your face' kind of guy.

This was (Salem- a Badool Bedouin) under a tent at Petra (Jordan( shortly after Desert Storm.




I took this one from across the narrow street in New Orleans.

Glad I wondered in here again. Great stuff EVERYONE.

I really like the one of the two ladies on the bench not even paying attention to the guy with the tattoo. One of those image that makes me wonder what are they looking at. But the entire series rocks. I also find Keith's close up of the guy blowing smoke is really interesting to. Good set there to.

Also agree with Simon on Pau,s shot

Don't know how far is far, but this starts to be close for me.

Afghanistan, June 2014. In the village Ab-e-Barik (Badakhshan), where a massive landslide had just killed over 2,000 people.
