Blog – Studying photography

I like to learn about photography, whether it’s by reading books, going to exhibitions, viewing online gallleries or following a formal study.

The Ongoing Moment

Geoff Dyer’s The Ongoing Moment is a fascinating, interesting and fun overview of important photographers and themes in American photography, focusing mainly on their pre-colour photography. A good read that will form the basis for further exploration of many of the individuals discussed.

Exploring Color Photography

There is nothing wrong with Exploring Color Photography, and there is a lot of things right about it. It just feels like Robert Hirsch has taken a general photography manual and added the word color [sic] to every other heading, just like a house-owner looking to make a quick sale will get the decorator in to give all the walls a quick lick of magnolia. On the plus side, the book is lavishly illustrated with a large selection of beautiful (color) photographs.

Flooded Ouse

A picture of the flooded river Ouse in North Yorkshire reminded me of one of the conclusions from the press photographer 2012 exhibition: Pictures of natural disasters have more impact if there is a human context.
