George Eastman House photographic processes series

 

The history of photography, and in particular photographic processes, is fascinating. It tells the story of how photography was democratised. If you want to know how we got to where we are today then you need to look back at the history and the evolution of photographic processes. The George Eastman House has produced a wonderful twelve part Photographic Processes Series that tells this story by tracing the history of the photographic process from the camera obscura through to digital photography.

Garry Winogrand at Rice University

 

When you hear some great photographers speak they try to make photography sound like this mystical, magical art form. If you ask Garry Winogrand photography is just photography, he doesn’t try to talk up photography like it’s something magical, he doesn’t get deeply philosophical much to the frustration of some in the video. I love how down to earth and hilariously irreverent Garry Winogrand is in this video, he is a no BS kinda guy and I like that about him.
