A slideshow

Hey folks,

I started producing audio slideshows for http://theindependent.ca - an online periodical with a new editor who wants to do actual journalism (we've also been married for 20 years so as a friend pointed out I have no choice in the matter ) I will also publish them on my Medium page so if you are interested you can check out the first one here: https://medium.com/@bojanfrst/youll-...d-cd737da6e388

Bojan, many thanks. I very much appreciate this style of communication as the ability to introduce voice adds a whole new dimension to a static photo or even series of such. I have been trying to integrate this into my work. My website has a few slide shows with related background music and text stories with integrated photos. But I am currently struggling with editing and the technical aspects of recording voice to track along with a slide show of photos. I may be contacting you off line for some ideas and suggestions.

Alex Webb's "crossings" about the US / Mexico border is the example I use as the benefit of your approach. I own the book. I have seen the prints in a museum presentation. Yet, his narrated slide show inmotion.magnumphotos.com/essay/crossings is by far my favorite mode as it conveys so much more.

Bob, in my experience, with sound, like with photography, the equipment and the software do make a difference. A good recorder with a windsock and good software for editing go a long way. I really like Hindenburg for audio editing. It's fabulous. Journalist Pro version has everything you'd ever want (as part of my work I also produce a podcast) and they often discount it by 50% on World Radio Day (Feb 13). The recorders are like cameras, a balance of what feels right in your hand and price matters. I'd like to have a digital Leica and a Marantz recorder, but, you know, Olympus Pen F and a TASCAM seem to be working just fine Happy to chat off-line and share whatever useful experience I may have...

Bojan

I just watched all of these slide shows. Very well done, Fürst. I do like the way that each person tells their story without any interruptions at all, combined with the background sounds that bring the viewer into the environment. I get the feeling I would like to know these people.

Thanks, Bojan. Very good work in all ways. Following you now.

(Also, starting to migrate my “visual poems” based on the epigrams of Antonio Porchia into Vimeo from the orphanage of Vibbiddi ;-/. Thanks for the inspiration in that regard as well.)

Hello Bojan, I'm thankful for the updates to this thread as I otherwise would likely never have discovered it. Thus far I've only viewed the presentation of the barber. I do plan to watch the others. I just wanted to tip my cap and compliment you on your choice of storytelling format. Very nicely done.

All the best

Love the presentation format as the audio just adds so much information to the still photos.And the audio being in the subject's voice is really a step up.



Also, great choice of subject matter. Each episode is a surprise being a subject we thought we had no interest in until it starts. When each show is over, we are left with that feeling that we are a bit smarter than when it started. Who would have ever thought that I would watch a little program about bee keeping. But I did and loved it.

Hello there...

For those of you who watched and liked the slideshows, we are embarking on phase two of this project and venturing out of the Avalon peninsula. We started a small kickstarter campaign to fund the four profiles on Bonavista peninsula. Should you feel so inclined, here is a link to support that campaign: http://kck.st/2EUgRkG

And here is a link to the 12 profiles we published so far: https://vimeo.com/manage/albums/4981968

Cheers!

Bojan

Bojan: I just love the format. And each show is so informative about the local culture.

Those who believe the world begins and ends with prints hanging on a wall should view the excellent photography but with the sound turned off, then again with the audio to see the difference.

I just realized it has audio . So it is documentary!
Been born and raised in multi-million city and still keeping its way I'm intrigued how people live Walmart/Drugshoppers free places. We are back to USSR in major cites. Would it be Toronto or Boston. Everything looks the same, same stores at every corner...

Bob and Ko.Fe thank you for the kind words! Newfoundland still has its hidden charms, but the mass consumerism is very much inescapable here as well the moment you get away from a small outport community. What is encouraging is seeing how many people are trying to do something different and something that feels authentic to this place. So there is hope. There is always hope

Yesterday an envelope addressed to me arrived in the mail containing two postcards from the Postcard Project #11. The cards had been sent by Bojan to me in British Columbia, Canada from across the country in Newfoundland. One of the cards was a terrific photograph taken by Bojan of the artisanal salt makers of Bonavista featured in the 7070 series. The other was an equally wonderful hand printed picture created by "Pherdinand" in the Netherlands meant for me in BC but delivered to Bojan in Nwfl because my card had stuck to his as one. The card from Europe made its way across the ocean and from coast to coast with a little stop along the way in Newfoundland, just like we used to do years ago when transatlantic flights touched down in Gander for "a wee visit" before heading on their way.

Bojan took the time to help make sure I received Csaba's card, which was kind of him, and true to the good nature of Newfoundlanders. The story of the postcard's journey led me to take a second look at the slide shows for the 7070 series and the stories they tell. Each one is astonishingly good. If you have not seen them, I highly recommend following the link. Definateky work of the top quality.

As always, thank you for the kind words everybody. The new episode is up: https://vimeo.com/340087728

This one in gritty and dark visually because an optometrist works pretty much in the dark.

And Greg, I am so glad your postcards made it!
