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).

I didn't take this photo, but it perfectly represents much of what i hate about this era:



I mean, Christ — they're all even dressed exactly the same.

The scope of the electronic "device" plague has become so all-pervasive in scope that to me, photographing persons engaged in such self-absorption has completely lost any appeal as a photographic subject.
And I truly wish people would stop posting these endless photos of this incredibly rude and mostly unnecessary behaviour.

...these people and those devices are not going away AND there is going to
more of both.
Although I am distressed by the almost total lost of humanity by this cellphone social media generation, this is what is seen on the streets of the world everywhere.
If the light is right I will photograph the subject with or without phone regardless.

Agree Frank.

The greats always photographed their times and what ever was a reflection of that. The question becomes how can you make the photos of people with these devices interesting in a way that reflects our times.

Kid is small enough to be in a baby stroller, and his parents have him playing games on a goddamned smartphone. As a middle school teacher, I see kids addicted to these devices and it saddens me to see a kid starting down that path so young.

Ah lad. Irony, to be sure - given that, to be sure, you've read the title of the thread, haven't ye.

They can be wonderful lighting devices in the right darkness.
