a must see


just saw it yesterday and it's really upsetting ... WATER - which should be a birth right and that we, the lucky ones, take for granted, is becoming harder and harder to come by for most of the rest of the world. How can you OWN water ? well corporations figured out the way. What's next, AIR ??? I'm sure they'll figure that out too...

a time it was | BILL EPPRIDGE

The other day my wife and I had a beautiful dinner with Bill Eppridge and his wife Adrienne at my friend's Serbian restaurant KAFANA in the East Village (amazing food, if you live in nyc and haven't tried it yet, close this page and don't come back till you've checked it out).
Bill is an amazing guy and legendary photographer, he has great stories to tell, I could spend days just listening to his stories from back in the days when things were different (much better if you ask me) than today, when the 'photo industry' had integrity and some guts.


You could see that back then, presidential candidates had some substance, it wasn't just about the entertainment, about creating a spectacle. Looking at the pictures and listening to Bill's stories, you realize that Bobby Kennedy was a REAL, normal guy. For example he only had ONE bodyguard, not 20 layers of secret service people .... the title of the essay, THE LAST CAMPAIGN, says a lot. The Kennedys, JFK and RFK, were probably the last president/candidate who were themselves, not just puppets. And we saw how that ended.

This book is an amazing piece of history and is loaded with great images. Buy it from your local bookstore if it's still in business, and if that's not the case you can get it HERE

The other day I stopped by my photo lab in Midtown Manhattan, and bumped into Eric, the owner, who also runs the CENTER FOR ALTERNATIVE PHOTOGRAPHY. I'm always amazed by his collection of antique cameras and big brass lenses, you name it, he has it. And he uses them btw.
He showed me his wife's book that just came out. Her name is JONI STERNBACH, and the book is SURFLAND. All photographs are tintypes, every single one is unique and looks amazing. Out of this world. There is something about large format photography that's completely different than 35mm or medium format, depth of field is not the same, perspective, there is some old school feel to it - and then if you do it the way it was done a 100-150 years ago (very time consuming and labor intensive), you get something completely different and amazing...
