Frank Jackson on Street Photography I am happy and excited to announce a new RFF forum on Street Photography mentored by Frank Jackson, one of the best producers of analog B/W prints I have ever seen. His shows include the Open Shutter Gallery, Heriard-Cimino Gallery, and Ogden Museum of Southern Art. His images are in the collections of Smithsonian Ogden Museum of Southern Art, California Afro American Museum and Xavier University New Orleans LA. He has worked for or has been featured with Visa Card, Xerox, UCLA, Eric Owen Moss, Architect, Hasselblad Forum (cover),Gordon Parks, Muhammed Ali, Million Man March Wash. DC, Lionel Hampton, jazz legion photographer , 1995-2002, Stevie Wonder, B+W Magazine (British version) twice, Rangefinder Magazine, Dahon Bicycles, Arelli Wheels, Real Product Design, Automobile Club of Southern California. Frank's online images are at fotographz.500px.com and fotographzfrankjackson.tumblr.com . "While on this diverse photographic journey…I have to say during this whole time my love for fine art black and white photography kept growing. I always found time to shoot in different cities and my own personal work…this has sustained me through some very tough times. As of 2012, with the help of a very good friend I maintain a state-of-the-art dream darkroom. The darkroom helps greatly in the on-going practice of understanding “the light”, being able to process film and print drives me to keep my digital photography “organic”. I’m curious visually and shooting what’s, what on the street feeds this curiosity. Everyday I walk out my front door to “see” the world with a digital camera, a film camera, the “cup” and an open mind (mostly).

Of course not everything costs $39.99 -- a traffic ticket is more, so is an impromptu yoga class with a master practitioner...

OK, Dan, that picture of the doggie really got me. All great shots, though -- as usual!

How about a slightly used car for $39.99?

... thanks for the positive feedback. I don't know how much longer I can keep the $39.99 gag going

Fun thread! Great idea--and photos. A lot of "decisive moments" in here--not always easy to catch with a TLR.

A shoeshine, even in NYC is less than $39.99


Food donations, even ones with no sugar and no carbs are also less than $39.99 -- kinda cool to see an enterprising solicitor with their own website:

I like the last two you've posted-but I will say that the guy getting the shoe shine has the butt-ugliest shoes on I've ever seen !

The shot of the dog on the steam grate makes me want to feed it.....the look in it's eye's makes the picture.
