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).

Everyone has something to say yet most of us have turned out to not be good listeners (even me). I'm not real sure what was said, but I always know what I saw (whether or not I choose to believe it is...well) So It is fine to post something you've already done but it is all about "the doing" so do it!

Frank--love the photo of the fellow in the Louvre courtyard--it's so surreal, it looks as if he's trying to contact the spaceship---!
Thanks...

I just realized that almost ALL of my photos of people in the street using cell phones are women. Does this mean women talk more than men? Or am I just a perve?

I was going to highlight Michael's 'crazy eyed' guy, then I saw Joe's shot of the violin/phone girl and was going to quote that, then Hexiplex and Rick followed up with some more crackers and I decided it was pointless - so all I'm left to say is this is quite some thread.

Some of mine...

No, you're not alone. I got rid of mine. Saved $40 per month to spend on film!
