Photogs / Photo Exhibits This is the place to discuss a particular Photographer (work, style, life, whatever), as well as to post Gallery and Museum Photo Exhibitions and your own impressions of them. As we march on in this new digital world, it is often too easy to forget about the visual importance of the photographic print, as well as their financial importance to the photographer. It is also interesting to remember that some guy named Gene Smith shot with lenses that many lens test reading "never had a picture published in their life" amateurs would turn up their their noses at, as being "unacceptable."

CBS Sunday Morning

Did anyone else see the feature on Abelardo Morell's work entitled Camera Obscura on CBS Sunday Morning? I saw the exhibit and the lecture when it was here in Chicago at the Art Institute a few years back and it was wonderful. Talk about alternative gear ha ha... If you get a chance to see the piece it is wonderful. Heres a bit of background on the work

Terrific. I got pre-annoyed by the title, as it's used so often to refer to things that aren't a camera obscura. But damned if he isn't actually using one!

Yeah pretty cool. Early on he was using film and a view camera to record the image and his exposures were sometimes hours long. He is inside the camera like some artists/painters were tracing and then painting the upside-down image.

I just saw an old BBC program with David Hockney discussing the influence of the camera obscura on painting in the 1400's, both in Italy and the north. Very interesting.
