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."

Video with Joel Meyerowitz

I thought this may be of interest, a nice video with Joel Meyerowitz:

I did a quick search on the forum before I posted, but I didn't seem to find a thread on it. Please remove it if I was wrong.

Just saw that, interesting, wished it was longer though. I think his segments in the Genius of Photography series allowed more of him to come through.

"Q:Please excuse the standard elevator pitch, but can you give us a little introduction as to who you are, what type of photography you shoot, what you’re known for, and what camera you use?

A: I’m Joel Meyerowitz and I have been photographing for 50 years. I consider myself a street photographer, which means I like to be out in the everyday chaos of ordinary life and watch for things to show themselves to me; things that make some sense to me particularly and this kind of work can only be done at the level that I think it needs to be done with a Leica."

I thought this was a pretty silly statement.

That was perhaps because it is an advertorial in disguise

Actually he elaborates on this in the Genius of Photography series. If it's an advertorial, it's probably Lecia editing it this way.
