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).

Dan yes Daves exhibit is terrific. One of the better photography exhibits I've seem in a while.
They have display cases with his camera and negatives and contact sheets from the time he was working on the project.

I'm on my phone so I hope the link works; for those of us who won't be in Chicago in the next six months.

I'd love to see the prints themselves but a website is better than nothing. Personally, I really liked the milkman in front of his wonky van - even though it's about more than any single image.

Allen/mods...lose the link if it's an issue.

Hi Simon thanks for the link and it works. There are some of those in the show at the Chicago Library. The library show is big. 60 or so images. Dave had a show at Alibi and is having another show there in Jan 2016 IIRC. The library images scanned and inkjet and the Alibi exhibit will be silver.

I stopped by the show this evening after work. Enjoyed it very much.

His request to look straight into the lens really adds life and depth to the images. "The eyes are the windows to the soul" is so true. The settings are a pleasure to see, but having that eye to eye connection with the subjects creates an entirely different dynamic.

Isn't it interesting what happens when you add a second person to a portrait? It seems to me to create what the poet Robert Bly called "a third body." Among my favorites were the two women in the shop with the plastic lemons above the counter, and the family on the porch with, presumably, the father in the lawn chair. But so many nice photos.

Please pass along my admiration and appreciation to your friend, the photographer. And thanks for the heads up on the show.

John

I will pass along your words to Dave. He worked on a tripod with a Yashica Mat which is in a display case. You can see Dave and tripod in a couple of the photos.
