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).

Can't say I hate or despise them, just not overly fond of them. And right now mine is not working. On the other hand - contrarily? - I do love these photos.

This is called a "selfie stick". Now forbidden in the museums.

Great shot. No doubt it will one day be in a museum as an example of the kind of mad obsession that swept round planet earth in the early 21st Century.

Isn't it just.

I know people moan about how easy it is to snap mobile/cell pictures but the damn things, incredibly useful as they can be, are like a social plague at times. Connected to people they've never met rather than connecting with the people right next to them. I'll happily photograph them until I reach the point where I have as many pictures of mobiles as there are mobiles in the world - my own little pictorial moan

I nearly waited around a copy of the poster, in your last shot which I saw earlier in the week, yesterday to see what I could get simply because it made me smile thinking we're all being sold the same crap by the same people the world over. Perhaps, to embolden the point, we could all make our own 'local' street observations in-front of the same global advert and see how many images we can get, some small intelligence on the diversity (or not) of the people being targeted around the world for one product or one lifestyle.

Little wonder people moan about the similarities across many street photographs.

...Wittering now, clearly need a coffee and to start some work
