Heavy on my mind is the subject of a sharp @jmcolberg column: writing about my photography w/out art jargon. (At least in this, I was fortunate to be raised by an English & Drama major and went to the library for my photo education rather than art or photo school.) http://cphmag.com/how-to-write/

I read the article this afternoon. Lots to ponder!

Tod Papageorge made some fabulous photos in Studio 54 in the late 1970's, when he was lucky enough to be able to pass the magic rope. As often happens when shooting in places like this, for the most part the privileged patrons don't look like they are actually having fun.

This just in over the transom: When I was in Louisville for the BRAM/NATION show, I gave a lecture sponsored by the Lou. Visual Art Assoc. They recorded it and here are the best parts, very well edited by Monica Laake. It's not nearly as boring as I'd feared: http://vimeo.com/81734217

I just got home from one of the most powerful, devastating and brilliantly assembled photo exhibitions I have ever seen. Congratulations to Anne Tucker and her team at the Museum of fine Arts, Houston for its curation and to the Brooklyn Museum for hosting it. This is not a chronology (though just about every conflict from the origin of Photography is in it) but a study, using photography, of humanity's most consistent occupation. This is a show not to be missed: http://www.brooklynmuseum.org/exhibitions/war_photography/

I'll be teaching a Leica Akademie Street Photography Workshop Weekend at the Leica Gallery in Washington DC, with Aziz Yazdani and Tom Smith of Leica June 6-8th. On Friday, I'll present my current work, we'll talk about the history of the genre, techniques and approaches.   Saturday we'll be shooting with the students, and Sunday we'll do a group critique of what we all shot Saturday. It will be fun and informative too. There will be stories!  Details HERE! http://www.cvent.com/d/x4qsmr

A lovely, even touching short film on my long-time friend, publisher, late-night wanderer, dining companion, and Oh! did I say photographer? photographer Orville Robertson. I first became aware of Orville's work back in 1994 when he and I were both in an exhibition called "100 Years of Street Photography" and its subsequent CD-ROM catalogue "The New Street Photography." I recognized a kindred spirit and when we finally met many years later, I was proved right. [Ironically, in what was cutting edge in 1994, the CD-ROM was produced for Mac System 7 and is now completely unreadable. Once again, paper would have been better.]

At the Miami Street Photography Festival I had the profound pleasure of seeing "In No Great Hurry," the Saul Leiter documentary. It left me shattered and sobbing with beauty, joy and sadness together, and unable to speak at all for some time. A great soul has left Photography, but the fragments he left behind are exquisite.

Maggie Taylor is one of the very few artists using photographic elements to make truly fine images. I have a lot of problems the use of compositing and Photoshop to create pseudo-real street images, but this is a different genre entirely. Her work is gorgeous, as a fine painting is gorgeous. Inimitable is the right word for her.

so at 1:00 p.m. on December 7th, "a day that will live in Infamy," I'll be speaking on my street photography and the transition from black and white to color at The Miami Street Photography Festival. For details, visit their site! In the area, or tired of over-priced bad art Art Miami? Take a break and come over. More info: http://www.miamistreetphotographyfestival.org/
