Portraits

Has it really been that long since my last post? Between sea swimming, university work, family life, and god knows what else, I have had little time to dedicate to posting. apologies to all (if any). Excuses, excuses.
Just a quick update on my university status. For my photoessay project, I just edited 545 images down to 50; now to further edit to 25 images, and get the sequencing right.
History & Theory essay is about halfway there: I’m doing a critical essay on Robert Frank’s: The Americans. A wonderful book, rich and complex in content and history. If you don’t already have it, get it. I also just received a copy of Looking In: Robert Frank’s The Americans. A comprehensive exploration and analysis of The Americans, which includes contact sheets, essays, maps, and loads more. I will do a more in depth review of the book here at a later date.
For now, I will leave you with a link to Tommy Forbes: Portrait Of The Indian Male. Loads of people poo poo Flickr.com, but there are so many talented, dedicated photographers there. Heres the link. Enjoy.
