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).

Why it took them so long...

Nice!!! I just checked whats new last night, but haven't read it, yet. I do it weekly know as it became the only photography media which I'm finding to be worth to look at.

Yours photography is a must content on this Leica blog and for Leica enthusiasts like me.
Leica Gallery NY must be next if not already.

I enjoy using my analog darkroom.

I have enjoyed your images here on RFF for some time. Nice to see them again, and nice to have them on the Leica website. We still don't know if you're a current, active darkroom rat. Probably not so much for the street work (M9 and all....)

Looking forward to the street portraits. My wife used to do a lot of street portraiture; here, there, and everywhere we traveled. She has the gift of rapport.

Hey Bill,

I am now a computer darkroom rat. Divorce forced a huge downsize in 1997 but I still had access to a darkroom through one of my clients that had one until about 10 years ago. I had a 5X7 solar enlarger with a zone VI cold light head that I just loved. If I had a darkroom I would still be shooting film in some capacity but I love my MM for all the reason I mentioned in the piece that Leica did.

If I do retire in New Mexico I might pick up an old Deardorff and build a darkroom again but who knows.

That pic of the selfie taking couple oblivious to the homeless person is such a strong image.
Seen it before, but it has the same impact looking at it again.

By any chance, did you fly phrogs in the Marines? I was a CH46 pilot from 1975-1986 and spent six months at Futema with HMM161 back in 1978.

And I like your photos.

CH 46 crewchief.
73-77

HMM 164 for a few months at Futenma early 1976 and put in for a transfer and got it to HMM 165 Cubi Point PI. We would get picked up from Subic by LPHs and spent some time on the USS Tripoli and the USS Okinawa. We did get down to Australia (shellback)....
Thanks and S/F
