“Life for a photographer cannot be a matter of indifference. Opinion often consists of a kind of criticism.” Robert Frank
Photography as a medium can be very powerful: the still image allows for contemplation, it can refer to cultural and visual traditions, and as a representation of reality it forces the viewer to think about the depiction and its meaning.
The photographer has been a slave to the camera for a long time. Good camera, good lens, Leica, etc – these were the masters of the photographers.
Selected quotes on photobooks shared by David Chickey, Radius Books during the masterclass workshop with Alex & Rebecca Norris Webb in Singapore.
The secret tool in a great photographer’s camera bag is ‘ACCESS’. We all take good photographs, or at least we should be, but the ones that stand head and shoulders above the rest are those where the photographer has made that extra effort, gained that extra trust and access, and shot pictures of a subject with that much more intimacy and insight. So, next time you consider upgrading your tools, invest in ACCESS.
