Photogs / Photo Exhibits This is the place to discuss a particular Photographer (work, style, life, whatever), as well as to post Gallery and Museum Photo Exhibitions and your own impressions of them. As we march on in this new digital world, it is often too easy to forget about the visual importance of the photographic print, as well as their financial importance to the photographer. It is also interesting to remember that some guy named Gene Smith shot with lenses that many lens test reading "never had a picture published in their life" amateurs would turn up their their noses at, as being "unacceptable."

David Bailey on the wireless

... some intresting, and surprisingly frank interviews with someone who has spent a (successful) lifetime in photography ... photographed lots of icons of the 20th century and slept with some of the worlds most beautiful over the last fifty years

David Bailey on the wireless

PS ... I'm not sure about regional availability of the link

I've been listening to them as I drive home from work, great interview. I met him once back in the 1980's he's a funny guy with an impish sense of humour.

His preferred camera is a Rolleiflex also

Firstly, from the radio show I can tell he has probably quite bad Emphysema (yes I am a doctor) and secondly he used an Olympus Pen to take pictures of his wife giving birth. He is an anti-gearhead as far as I can tell.

He does sound a bit wheezy when he laughs.

Excellent. Yes an impish sense of humor. Very enjoyable.

One of those people you would like to meet.

With color photos, we look at the colors and then at the image.
With B&W photos, we immediately see the image.

I lived down the road from Bailey as a kid and often heard his hyacinth parrots he kept on the upper floors of his house in King Henry's Road. My greatest attraction was when I got to see his photos and the Leica sitting on the table. He is a craftsman of the first order and was a founding member of the sixties without him there would be no fashion or supper models so I am glad to have a Leica thank you David.

... being emphysemic is a prerequisite for being a great photographer ... I can confirm this from personal experience ...

Yeah, this happens to me in life too... I once couldn't interpret a car as a car because I could only see the color first. Once I realized it was a car, it was too late and got hit.

... and you are so good at differentiating cameras, and brands of cameras, and models of cameras, and variants thereof ... shame it doesn't extend to automobiles eh? still you seem to have made a good recovery so far

Hahahah... yes that settles this bs for once and all. One more 'black and white captures the soul while color only shows the clothes' sort of pretentious nonsense and I'll turn this into a drinking game, just to get something beneficial from it...

Repeated on Radio 4 today. Right now, in fact.

It's a bit disorganised as a documentary or interview, but there is plenty of interest.
