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).

Yeah, Mr. Morgan, was that a knife in your hand? I don't think Steichen liked Morgan. Consent was given until Morgan saw the photo. I guess he could have had Steichen killed, but that would have been too obvious.

OT: way before PhotoShop.

By the subject agreeing to sit for the portrait, and generally paying the photographer. Arnold Newman was held up as the example of a portrait photographer to which I responded.

Newman's photo of Alfred Krupp.. same story as Steichen and Morgan I would think?

That's the only style of portraiture?

Wheeeee...

And again I would rather others not push their morals and ethics on anyone else. No one really has the right to tell others what they should see or create.

By one very limited definition, yes. By a vastly more limited (but different) definition, it's only a portrait when the subject consents and (ideally, in your view) pays the photographer.

As I fairly clearly implied, there are many kinds of portraits.

Cheers,

R.

Well, actually, we do. It's up to the recipient of the advice whether he/she accepts it.

Cheers,

And I actually get noticed less now than I did in the 70s and 80s when I was the only one wit ha camera on the streets. Leica Ms also help some especially when everyone else has big DSLRs. They seem to be getting most of the attention.
What neighborhood are you in usually these days? I try to take advantage of the ridiculous amount of sunlight after work, but am pretty busy unfortunately.

I'm 6'3" white guy with long hair and a beard. Jesus-y, if you will. Tatoo is not visible. I've done the majority of my shooting in Tokyo, where I have ALWAYS stuck out like a sore thumb. I still find a way blend in. Here in Chicago, it's a bit easier, but people are more likely to go off and explain to you why you're wrong.
