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).

Our Street Photography . . . Post yours!

Thought it is a good idea to revive an open thread on Street Photography.
Where RFF shooters can their own street shots.

The street in all facets, rogue, polished, crowded, lonely, in movement, still, backlit, chicklit, brutal . . you name it.
Maybe just plain B&W?

Really, I can't say I am a Street Photographer. Rather a shooter on the streets. Not daring or impolite enough I'm afraid. Still I observe. Others are more in the flux. Show they get the feeling of the street, being on the level of the people.

Anyway I invite everyone to post stuff, and please make some comments on what makes it great.

And three-peat. These and others are part of me documenting my small city's odd, weird, declining downtown with my camera. They're at my eponymous website or at www.reservedatalltimes.com (end of plug)

This is a very strong photo. And its cool that you didn't crop it. The dark foreground works with the light background.

Addy, This is my take of a street, people, unknowns:



I like their similar gait and walking direction, it is a little bit of aesthetics I think.

Funny lens.

And this one is a bit rogue, because I kept framing after this mother and daughter entered my frame.



I like the kind of 'pop' it gives.
