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).

The only one that comes even remotely close to the OP's theme is this one. For me it has to be a fleeting moment -- a split second earlier or later and there's no photo. Now for me, this photo is cute/clever. To get a moment that tells a story is very rare. To get a moment that tells a story with impact rarer still. It's a recognition. Photos that include artwork or photos from another artist, like this one, for me loose a few "points." My preference is for a truer shot. All of this is very hard to do, and requires hour upon hour of "hunting" and intense concentration and awareness.

Wonderful trios Simon!

Like the detail of the man holding the basket in the window and the meter collector Allen.

I particularly like the cows and the bike rider. But all are good.

Thanks Dan it wasn't like that for very long but you are right. I wasn't sure if I was going to post it or not for the very reason.
