  • Notable Books: 2017

    To effectively split my list into two halves from the start: There are a number of books that I have not reviewed this year, that I am not adding to this bedroll of notable books from 2017. There were some giant books published by Steidl, including the Gordon Parks Collection, and David Freund’s “Gastop”, for instance. Books like these defy reduction; so, I’ve left them off to concentrate on smaller publications. I have also left off some even smaller books, also because of their incomparability and distinction, and maybe because they are closer to the heart: In particular Between Dust and Sky comes to mind, “An Intimate Wilderness”, and “A Good Stress”.

  • Bystander: A History of Street Photography

    When was it? Seven years ago? I was working in a bookstore in a photography gallery and I had access to a tattered copy of the original version of this book from 1994. I looked through it, but can’t say I read it. At the time, I wasn’t making photographs that were any good myself, and I wasn’t reading anything with intention either. I was just looking (but not seeing).

  • Shooting the TCSTV Sony A7R III Field Test

    It’s always a treat when Chris and I each get a copy of a new camera when we shoot an episode, so not only can Chris take photos and video, but I can film the entire episode on the camera in question. That was the case when we went to Sedona for our A7R III field test. You can find out Chris’ thoughts on the A7R III in the embedded video, but I wanted to give my impressions using the camera the way I do every week, shooting our show.
