Monday Morning Dispatch - Volume #174

  1. David Chang's new Netflix cooking show, Ugly Delicious, is absolutely brilliant. He takes a look at certain foods and how they show up in various cultures. To be warned, you will get very hungry watching each episode. 
  2. Tom Gran started a drawing challenge on January 1 where he adds another character to a giant fight scene each day. He is currently on day 70 and the scene is already crazy. 
  3. Pigeon racing is an old sport of the working class in Northern Europe. Zak Waters spent a couple of years photographing the sport and the characters who race the birds. The project is being kickstarted as a book and I picked up a copy. 
  4. Reuben Wu paired up a drone and long exposures of gorgeous rock formation to create this set of images. I am surprised a photographer hasnt done this already. 
  5. Ben Coleman created the video series, "Why I Create", exploring various artist's and their why. I have watched a couple of the them and was highly impressed. 
  6. Josh Neff's series, "Outer Limits", explores life far removed from cities. I cant wait to see who this series evolves and matures over time.  
  7. “Here is the hardest thing for many people about adulthood: Staying awake. That is, resisting the somnambulance that will grow like weeds over any state of habitual life, excepting acute crises. You have to actively invite experiences into your life that will interrupt the smallness of your story and the calcifying generalizations you make about the world based on your own private universe.”   Sara Hendren
  8. Elliot Verdier spent 4 months traveling through Kyrgyzstan capturing the generational differences between the elderly who long for the days of USSR and the more westernized youth.  

  9. A great reminder that creative energy is renewable. "One of the things I know about writing is this: spend it all, shoot it, play it, lose it, all, right away, every time. Do not hoard what seems good for a later place in the book or for another book; give it, give it all, give it now. The impulse to save something good for a better place later is the signal to spend it now. Something more will arise for later, something better. These things fill from behind, from beneath, like well water." This quote is from Annie Dillard. 

  10. Seth Godin's thoughts on writer's block need to be repeated to creatives until the concept of writer's block finally dies. He released a podcast on it and I would encourage everyone to listen to it.

Start your Monday off right:

  1. I wasnt familiar with a perpetual calendar prior to viewing this video but the end result was "simple" wooden box which advanced to the next date by flipping it. I love that the creator had to dig through old patents to figure out the mechanism for advancing the number with no machines. 
  2. One of my odder obsessions is with heirloom vegetables. I get so mad that people only associate a vegetable with its perfectly bland and shippable version found in grocery stores.

  3. Landscape photographer, Olivier Du Tre, sat down with the crew at The Camera Store Tv to talk about his analog process and printing. 
  4. Kate Ballis transformed Palm Springs into a scene from another planet with infrared photography. I love how the green cacti turn a steel grey blue.

the 6x17 way of life

Wednesday, I took the Intrepid 4x5 with a 6x17 roll film back to flex a different photographic muscle than my usual work. The sun finally poked out of the clouds after a couple days of rain. I exposed a roll of Ektar 100 and FP4+ for a total of 8 images. Here is a little video of my setup. 

I still have a ton to learn about more traditional landscape photography and composing images in the 6x17 format but it was fun to do something different with no idea how it would turn out. Here is are some of the early results.

  5. Ryan Steed is a documentary photography teacher in Memphis and his series, "Went Out For Cigarettes", is worthy of an individual teaching. I absolutely love his image of the multi colored flamingos.

  10. I am still trying to wrap my head around the implications of "Instagram is killing the way we experience art". There is no denying the platform has had a tremendous impact on art.  I might to write all my thoughts on the piece.

  4. Properly fermented sourdough bread is a magical experience. It is so different then the bread that populates the grocery shelves. Here is a love letter to the kitchen alchemy known as sourdough.  
  5. Libby Oliver takes portraits of people "wearing" every article of clothes they own. You can barely see the buried people but you can still tell a little about their personality. 
  6. Lee Friedlander took his camera to parties from 1956 to 2016 and the images make you feel like you're right in the middle of chaos.

  10. Dia Takacsova brought his camera (and dog) to Svalbard, the northernmost settlement in the world with a permanent civilian population. The desolate beauty is worth the journey. 

"The fact is that relatively few photographers ever master their medium......"

“The fact is that relatively few photographers ever master their medium. Instead they allow the medium to master them and go on an endless squirrel cage chase from new lens to new paper to new developer to new gadget, never staying with one piece of equipment long enough to learn its full capacities, becoming lost in a maze of technical information that is of little or no use since they don’t know what to do with it.” — Edward Weston

Monday Morning Dispatch - Volume #170

  7. Joseph Fox captured the characters of a local demolish derby in England. The portrait of the kid in the push car painted like a derby car is top notch.

  10. David DuChemin lays out three obstacles which often prevent photographers from mastering their craft. Spoiler alter...its not the camera you use. 

Schrodinger's Camera

This is the crazy idea you may have heard Dave Allen and I came up with live on Episode #41 of the Creative Bar. Could you create a great photograph with a disposable camera without knowing the film you are using? 

Schrödinger's cat is the famous thought experiment of quantum mechanics applying the idea of superposition to an "everyday experience". The cat is simultaneously alive or dead until you open the box and determine the answer. The film is simultaneously color and black and white until you find out the answer. The film is simultaneously ISO 100 to ISO 1600 until you get your negatives back. 

  • Sign up and we will send you a load disposable camera. (It will take us a little bit to load up the disposable cameras and shipping them out)
  • You can shot whatever you want 
  • Send the camera back to us and we will develop it for you 
  • We will create a book out of the results. 
  • We will send each photographer a copy of the book and their negatives. This will be the first time the photographers will be able to see their images. 
  • We will sell the book to fund the cameras, film, and book production costs

  6. “Generosity is luck going in the opposite direction, away from you. If you’re generous to someone, if you do something to help him out, you are in effect making him lucky. This is important. It’s like inviting yourself into a community of good fortune.”
    – Twyla Tharp

  10. Warren King is recreating the individuals from his Grandfather's small village in China using nothing but cardboard and glue. The results are insanely expressive sculptures out of such a humble medium.

Mail Bag - Volume #1


"A Cautionary Tale" by James Cockroft

A small folded zine on the demise of the Sanger-Harris department store and its mural which James has passed since childhood. After the store changed hands multiple times and finally closed, James finally stopped by to photograph the mural only to find the building being demolished. This a great reminder to take the picture when you have the chance because it might not be there in the future. The combination of (I am guessing) expired film, plus older (maybe cheaper camera) and DIY printing of the zine really reinforce the idea of photographing memories. 


"Flat Circle #1" by Fabi Woods

This is the first zine in what will hopefully be a long run of bi-annual publications contain the world and life which swirls around Fabi Woods. I was really impressed with the sequencing as it feels like it start with wide unknown world and tightens till it reaches a intimate portrait of his pregnant fiance in the middle and then circled back out.  


"Haddock Et Frites" by Andy Parslow | CJ Henry | Darren Rose  

I love the idea behind this zine. Three photographers spend 48 hours in a particular town (Brussels) and produced a zine from the resulting images. Each photographer's style blend perfectly into a cohesive publication even with using different cameras and films. I hope they keep doing these.
