It’s hard to conflate photography and videography but that’s what it feels like Elephant Gun’s Khalik Allah tries in his “Field Niggas” documentary. If you pause the film at any time that frame could stand on it’s own and be a great photograph. “Field Niggas” is a raw, rough, gritty, almost disturbing at times, and occasionally beautiful look at the inhabitants of the streets of Harlem in NYC.
I decided to leave Facebook years ago and I don’t miss it at all not one little bit, I have never regretted my decision to leave not for a nanosecond.
Yesterday I signed up to a new social network, Ello.
I’ll be posting photos and other stuff exclusively on Ello, stuff you won’t find on this web site, Flickr, Twitter or anywhere else except on Ello. Hit me up and come say hello on Ello!
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.
