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).

You can just about see he's 'holding on' to the dog's lead.

Brilliant Simon!
The man in the church - is he posing for you or you just caught the moment?

Thanks Ben. He had a bit of a stoop, plus he was looking at the little embroidered cushions that people kneel on (you can make them out on the pews.) Obviously more interesting than his paper

Below the church shot is a bookie (or turf accountant) smoking a cigarette in the doorway of his premises....the holding on part is extremely tenuous
- his little 'rollie'

HCB's steps Richard. That's a steep climb with a large piece of wood boarding on your back!

Allen and Simon, thank you. He's carrying 3 sheets of plywood and he had just come up a hill and crossed the road to the steps that Simon recognized.

Keith, prayer beads, surely was taken on the outer deck of an Istanbul ferry. Beautiful lighting on his hand and beads.

Some of the BEST photos I have seen on this site.
Reminds me of the Family of Man photos from the MOMA show.
