  • Book Review: Badlands by George Webber and Robert Kroetsche

    I am using a few different guides to say something about Rocky Mountain Books re-print of Robert Kroetsch’s novel “Badlands”, which also contains a portfolio of images of the eponymous area located on the Red Deer River, a couple hundred kilometers east of Calgary. I have been reading a series in the Financial Times by Francis Hodgson, called “A Dream Photo Collection”. I submit Webber’s first photograph in this book (pg. 276. from1987) as a consummate dream photo, it is my favorite type of picture, in the realm of ethnographic photos, a picture that falls into the category of “near documentary”. Identity slips in this picture, but more on this later…

  • Two Mann Studios Travel Photography: Part 3 Croatia

    After traveling with each other 24/7 for three solid months through Australia and Greece, we totally found our groove in Croatia. We don’t know if it’s that we were nearing the end of our journey, or that we’d grown so accustomed to always being with each other, but there’s something about everything we experienced in Croatia that seemed heightened… our sense of adventure, our closeness to each other, the depth of our everyday experiences, our ability to soak in the amazingness of everything around us, and most importantly, our clarity around what’s important. We feel an overwhelming sense of pride for our kids every single day, but it’s not very often that we feel this same level of pride within ourselves as parents.

  • Book Review: The City is a Novel

    Recently, I fell into conversation with a well-known, inventive portrait photographer over the question of individuality. The gentleman contended that people sometimes look alike, and found a correlation between morphology and character. Dangerous territory, given the history of photography, but I tend to agree with the assertion, and disagree at the same time. Solipsistic, I know, but I never think of a single iota of what I write as “objective” in the slightest, and I forgive solipsism. Dear reader, I hope you do too.
