Create: Slack Tide

I am always on the lookout for intelligent uses of print, especially in the Digital Age, because I am a true believer in ink on paper. Enter Alex Palumbo. Photographer, filmmaker, printer of this and that and kind enough to … Read More

Create: The Murray Smith Box

This box came in the mail and I’m still trying to figure it out. And I mean that in the best way. I was going to title this post “Recapitulations,” as that is one of the included publications but that … Read More

Create: Sonder

Damn Jeff, you did good. As many of you know, I’m not really a street photography person. I don’t seek out this kind of work, and most of what I see coming from this genre just simply isn’t that good. … Read More

Create: Zines, Balazs Fejes

If this set of Zines doesn’t make you want to edit, sequence, and create your own then I don’t know what to tell you. And another great name. Balazs Fejes. My parents were lame and went with a standard tag … Read More

Create: AG23 Contributor Series, Frank Jackson

Frank Jackson is an enigma. Or an anomaly. Or maybe he’s both? Where does he fit in? I don’t know and that is precisely why I find Frank so interesting. Want to know about analog photography? Talk to Frank. Want … Read More

Create: TOMORROWLAND, Sebastian Schlueter

I have to start this with a little tough love. (It’s the same tough love you have heard me provide again and again.) If you look at what Sebastian Schlueter has done with his magazine/book “TOMORROWLAND” and you still find … Read More

Create: Ten Words, Ten Photographers

I lied. There are eleven words and photographers. But who is counting? I did this same film as a YouTube Live last week or the week before, but I liked the content enough to redo it here with more information. … Read More

Create: Chris Lewtas in Print

Let’s all tip our hats to Chris Lewtas, someone I just met after he reached out to say “Hello.” Chris did what so many don’t. He went to print. Idea = action = critical thought = print. Well done. So … Read More

Create: Drew and Katja Cain

We gotta give this guy some love. When I saw the view count on this film I thought my system was broken. You know me, jaded when it comes to the power of books and magazines in a world obsessed … Read More

Create: Jesse Levine

So I gave a talk. It was a captive audience. They were winners and I had a chance to talk at them. A small but potent group. Filmmakers, photographers, writers. You know, creative types. From the far reaches of the … Read More

Create: How to Sell Out

I’m not proud of this moment but that’s me. There is no denying it. This is photographic evidence of just one of the MANY times I’ve sold out. The case in question dates back to the Southern California of the … Read More

Create: Things I Wish I Knew

I’ve been remiss at posting the films I’m sending to Advancing Your Photography on YouTube. I think if most people knew what my life was actually like they would shake their head in both bewilderment and perhaps even a dusting … Read More

Create: Nómade, Martin Herrera Soler

I’m about to rave. Prepare yourself. Uruguay is a peculiar place. Here in the good, old US of A we rarely hear anything about this South American gem of a country. Sure, Uruguay is home to the greatest footballer of … Read More

Create: Advancing your Photography

Hey, let’s talk about me. My favorite subject. I’ve worked with Marc Silber before. Been to his studio, talked photography, talked history, process and the ever-changing world of image-making. I like Marc and I like Marc’s “kind” meaning those people … Read More

Creative: Selfie Book, Esben Melbye

Esben is Danish. Need I say more. This means he’s eccentric, speaks an ancient, impossible to learn or understand language and is prone to bouts of cycling, beer drinking, and wild adventure. You would like him. I badgered him for … Read More

Creative: Old Promo Piece

I’m a huge fan of print media. I know, you’re shocked. And when I say “print media,” I don’t just mean magazines, portfolios, books, etc. I mean marketing collateral as well. The image you are viewing here goes back to … Read More
