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).

It was a kind of semi pan. It was taken around 9.30/10pm last summer so not completely dark but dark enough for a slower shutter speed. I noticed the dog sitting in the basket quite late so did a kind of quarter turn whilst walking and pressing the release. Not a true (or at least decent) panning action and at first wrote the shot off as a failure but I think I quite like the wavy blur, for the moment at least.


Allen, thank you

Well thank you! It was a bit dark for Ektar though, so can't really be completely happy with these.

Nah I think that first one is literally perfect. Second one, maybe. First one the mood is conveyed so well with the colors. Absolutely love it. Where are you based? I checked out your Flickr and saw lots of stuff from around Asia.

I'm at the moment based in Finland. I've been these last years busy writing a PhD on Chinese politics, so I've come to spend a lot of time in that direction, traveling pretty extensively among others in South-East Asia.

I partly took up photography as hobby because I was living in Shanghai and folks back home were interested in seeing how my local neighborhoods looked like.

Ah okay. That makes sense. What exactly did you write about? I live just north of Shanghai now actually, it's one of my favorite places to shoot.

My thesis is a theoretical take on public diplomacy and soft power, nothing very interesting I fear.

But yeah, Shanghai is nice for shooting, among others. When there I tend to visit Luban Lu -- when the yuan was cheaper it was great for getting stuff. That is quite literally the place where I bought my first own camera, some five years ago.

Brussels , last days of September 2015.

Shot with Rolleiflex 2.8C (Xenotar) on Tri-X400.



I was sitting in a bar 'round midnight, when I saw this couple sitting across the alley, framed in the door openings.
