lisa elmaleh/ the everglades

so, it's been awhile... a long while, but i'm back with a request:

my dear friend lisa elmaleh is trying to raise funds for the next leg of her trip to the evergldes. she's been making photographs of this diminishing national treasure since 2008. i had the great fortune of accompanying her on one such trip, so this is a project close to my heart.

below is a link to a short video Lisa put together explaining both her project and her process. Lisa photographs using an 8x10 camera on glass plate negatives coated with collodian, a 19th century photographic process that is both time consuming and expensive. Every dollar helps, but if you don't feel like you can contribute, please be so kind as to forward this video along.

go here to contribute: the everglades by lisa elmaleh

jennifer trausch

i saw these photos at a clothing store near union square and was really struck by them. the artist, jennifer trausch, works at the polaroid studio where she operates the 20x24 polaroid camera. this series was shot using the 20x24 polaroid which she lugged from new york down to new orleans. the melancholy in these images deftly follows the tradition of american southern photography.

sound bites

i just heard an interview with robert polidori on the new yorker podcast. i found it equal parts fascinating and hilarious:


i also recently heard an interview with robert frank on wnyc's 'the leonard lopate show'. i'm not sure that leonard lopate actually knows very much about photography, but it's an entertaining piece nonetheless:
