There will be aired on Aljazerra tonight part of an interview of me they did in L.A. last February while I was there to speak at the Annenberg Space for Photograph. I remember it as being kind of an enjoyable interview but have no idea how much of it they will show tonight. The full interview I believe will run at another time. You can check out your carrier and channel # by going to their site: ttp://america.aljazeera.com and typing in your zip code.
Airing time will be 9:50 p.m. ET
It’s been a long, long time since I’ve logged in to blog. Just have had a lot of things going on that drew me away from my website. I don’t seem to get new work out there nearly often enough, sometimes not at all. I’ve got a couple of things going on right now and can’t say too much about them contractually. But I do have a workshop coming up in Italy in July. It will be in Cortona, a town I’ve had the pleasure of visiting a number of times, always a fine place to be in Italy, in the heart of Tuscany. The workshop is part of the Cortona On The Move photographic festival I first heard about from James Estrin of the New York Times. Here’s the site to check out.
I hope to see some of you there. In the meantime I’ll try to get back to this blog more frequently.
This is just a quick note to all of you who care about well done pieces that document photographers, their work and their thoughts. Rachel Elizabeth Seed is in the final stages of finishing a film about her mother’s wonderful two-box set of images and interviews on eight photographers produced back in 1972, including W. Eugene Smith, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Bruce Davidson, Cornell Capa, Brian Lanker, Lisette Model, Eliot Porter, and myself. I was honored to be placed in such august company way back then when I was less than a decade in the profession.
Rachel Seed’s film is called “A Photographic Memory” and is an attempt to get to know her mother who died when Rachel was just a baby, through interviews and examination of her mother’s interviews. She has spoken to and filmed Bruce Davidson and myself and has probed her mother’s curiosity about all eight of the originally chosen photographers and their work. She is in need of funds to support the final production of her film. She has about two weeks in which to still receive funding.
Please go to Google and find her site under Rachel Elizabeth Seed and “A Photographic Memory.” I think you’ll find the film and the memory of her mother’s work well worth the effort. Try to contribute if you can.
