PBS documentary looks at the life of iconic photographer Dorothea Lange

“I challenged myself I would go down there just to see if I could grab a hunk of lightning.” - Dorothea Lange


August 29, 2014 /Photography News/ Iconic photographer Dorothea Lange is the subject of a new documentary  - Dorthea Lange: Grab a Hunk of Lightning - that will premiere August 29 at 9-11 p.m. on Rocky Mountain PBS.

The personal documentary directed by Lange's granddaughter Dyanna Taylor uses family journals, photos and film footage, interviews and vérité sequences of Lange at her Bay Area home studio, circa 1962-1965, to convey a full picture of the photographer and her approach to art as a philosophy of life.

Lange's 1936, Migrant Mother
The film also examines how some of her best-known photographs came about, among them “Migrant Mother,” an image so widely reproduced and imitated that Lange says of it in a film clip: “It doesn’t belong to me anymore. It belongs to the world.”

Taylor hopes the documentary will increase appreciation of her grandmother, who she believes has been unfairly pigeonholed as a Depression-era photographer.  It is not generally known, she said, that Lange was a committed environmentalist in the 1950’s and 1960’s–before it was fashionable–working on a series of photographs on the Berryessa Valley in Napa County, Calif., which was flooded when a dam was built there in the mid-1950’s.  Lange’s photographs documented a year and a half in the lives of people living there—some for generations—before the dam was built.

Noting that this series has had an impact on her “to this day,” Taylor said Lange “showed America to Americans and that’s still relevant today.”

Dyanna Taylor is a five-time Emmy award winning Cinematographer and Director of Photography whose prominent career in documentaries and features has also earned her a Peabody Award and the honored Muse Lifetime Achievement Award for Outstanding Vision and Achievement in Cinematography from New York Women in Film and Television.

But these images are deceptively simple; the items in them were exhumed from the mass graves of the Bosnian War. Gafić, a TED Fellow and Sarajevo native, has photographed every item from these graves in order to create a living archive of the identities of those lost.

Getty Images photographer Scott Olson arrested in Ferguson



August 19, 2014 /Photography News/ Getty Images photographer Scott Olson was arrested Monday night during protests in Ferguson. 

In an Instagram video posted by journalist Amy K. Nelson, Olson said he was arrested because police "said the media is required to be in a certain area."

"Getty Images staff photographer Scott Olson was arrested this afternoon in Ferguson, Missouri, while on assignment documenting the events there," a statement from Pancho Bernasconi, vice president of news at Getty Images, reads. "We at Getty Images stand firmly behind our colleague Scott Olson and the right to report from Ferguson. Getty Images is working to support his release as soon as possible. We strongly object to his arrest and are committed to ensuring he is able to resume his important work of capturing some of the most iconic images of this news story."

Olson's arrest marks the second time that police have arrested journalists covering the Ferguson protests. Last week Ryan J Reilly of the Huffington Post and Wesley Lowery of the Washington Post were detained for several hours.

In photos: Remembering landscape photographer Charles Roscoe Savage

August 16, 2014 /Photography News/ Born 182 years ago today, on 16 August 1832, Charles Roscoe Savage was a British-born landscape and portrait photographer who produced images of the American West. He became one of the foremost 19th century landscape photographers of the western United States, as well as a renowned studio portrait photographer, with his studio in Salt Lake City, Utah. 

Shortly after his 1848 baptism and membership in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Savage emigrated to the United States where he initially found work as a photographer in New York City. On assignment from the LDS Church he traveled to Nebraska, where he established a  studio. In the spring of 1860, he traveled to Salt Lake City, Utah Territory with his family, where he established another photography studio with a partner, Marsena Cannon, an early Utah daguerreotypist and photographer. A year later, after Cannon moved to southern Utah, Savage established a partnership with artist George Ottinger. Many of Savage's photographs were reproduced in Harper's Weekly newspaper, which created a national reputation for the firm. This partnership continued until 1870, when Savage formed the Pioneer Art Gallery, and in 1875, needing more space, he replaced it with the Art Bazaar which -in 1883- burned to the ground with all of his negatives.

As a photographer under contract with the Union Pacific Railroad, Savage traveled to California in 1866 and then followed the rails back to Utah. He photographed the linking of the Union Pacific and Central Pacific on Promontory Summit, at Promontory, Utah in 1869. This series is considered his most famous work. Other well known Savage images include pictures of the Great Basin tribes, especially the Paiute and Shoshone. Savage photographed scenic areas of the west including Yellowstone National Park, Zion National Park, and created many images documenting the growth of Utah towns and cities. He also traveled extensively over western North America, taking pictures in areas of Canada and Mexico, and in areas from the Pacific Ocean to Nebraska in the mid-west.

After his death on 4 February 1909, another fire -in 1911- destroyed all of the negatives from the last 25 years of his career.

In Photos: The 1898 Spanish-American War from the Florida Shore

August 12, 2014 /Photography NewsIn 1898 U.S. attention focused on Florida as the Spanish-American War began on April 25. The port city of Tampa served as the primary staging area for U.S. troops bound for the war in Cuba. The arrival of over 30,000 troops, including Lieutenant Colonel Theodore Roosevelt and his Rough Riders cavalry unit, changed Tampa from a small town to a city.

Florida, the closest state to the Caribbean and home to a large Cuban immigrant population, became the setting for much of the action in Cuba's fight for independence from Spain. 

Although the main issue was Cuban independence, the ten-week war was fought in both the Caribbean and the Pacific.

August 12, 1898 marks the end of the Spanish-American War, with the Americans defeating the Spaniards.

The images included in this set have been selected from the Photographic Collection of the State Library and Archives of Florida.

The Florida Photographic Collection contains more than 157,000 images, representing the most complete portrait of Florida available.

"The Yearling": Pre-production and Location Photographs of MGM's

August 8, 2014 /Photography News/ Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings, born 118 years ago on August 8, 1896, was an American author who lived in rural Florida and wrote novels with rural themes and settings.

Her best known work, The Yearling is a Pulitzer Prize winning novel, published in 1938, about a young boy and his pet deer in Florida's Big Scrub. That same year, Rawlings sold the film rights of the book to MGM for $30,000.

In 1939, the studio sent art directors to north-central Florida to scout locations with Rawlings and gather visual research of “Cracker Florida.” They eventually leased a farm, planted crops, and began remodeling the farm to be used as an exterior set for the Baxter family farm.

The photographs taken for pre-production of The Yearling document two significant aspects of Florida culture: the state’s role in American film and the folklife of Florida “Crackers.” The production company extensively documented existing farms in the area, preserving a glimpse of life in Florida before electricity and mechanized farming, before the development boom that accompanied interstate highways, theme parks, and urban sprawl in post-World War II central Florida. By showing the remnants of Cracker culture together with the work of film production during the golden age of Hollywood, the photographs in this collection document an intersection between two very distinct and interesting cultural threads in the history—and popular image—of Florida.

Filming was set to begin in 1940 in north-central Florida under director Victor Fleming (Gone With the Wind, The Wizard of Oz) with Spencer Tracy in the role of Penny Baxter, the father of the boy Jody, played by Gene Eckman. The film also starred Anne Revere and Tully Marshall. Several conflicts—environmental problems, personal issues, and the advancing age of child-actor Eckman—led to the film's cancellation by the studio after two months.

After World War II, the studio finally completed the film in 1947 with Gregory Peck (Penny), Claude Jarman (Jody), and Jane Wyman. The film won Oscars for art direction and cinematography, and was nominated for five others.

In photos: The Mazamas, 100 years ago

July 19, 2014 /Photography News/ Have you ever wondered what your grandfather did for fun? While some undoubtedly whittled their lives away, others were out conquering the wilderness. If you’re from Oregon, ol’ grandpa might have even been part of the Mazamas.

On top of Mt. Hood, the original 105 charter members of the Mazamas founded their organization 120 years ago, on 19 July 1894. Since the organization’s founding, the Mazamas have fought for environmental preservation, built a number of lodges, named Mt. Mazama, and, of course, promoted and taught basic climbing education.

Remembering George Eastman, founder of Kodak, inventor of roll film

July 12, 2014 /Photography News/ Born 160 years ago, on July 12, 1854,  George Eastman was an American inventor and philanthropist. He founded the Eastman Kodak Company and invented roll film, helping to bring photography to the mainstream. Roll film was also the basis for the invention of motion picture film in 1888 by the world's first filmmaker Louis Le Prince, and a few years later by his followers Léon Bouly, Thomas Edison, the Lumière Brothers and Georges Méliès.

George Eastman. Part of Bain News Service collection.
In 1884, Eastman patented the first film in roll form to prove practicable; in 1888 he perfected the Kodak camera, the first camera designed specifically for roll film. In 1892, he established the Eastman Kodak Company, in Rochester, New York, one of the first firms to mass-produce standardized photography equipment. This company also manufactured the flexible transparent film, devised by Eastman in 1889, which proved vital to the subsequent development of the motion picture industry.

Page 1 of George Eastman's patent no. 388,850, for his film camera and roll film. 4 September 1888

During his lifetime, he donated $100 million, mostly to the University of Rochester and to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (under the alias "Mr. Smith"). The Rochester Institute of Technology has a building dedicated to Mr. Eastman, in recognition of his support and substantial donations.

In his final two years, Eastman was in intense pain, caused by a degenerative disorder affecting his spine. He had trouble standing and his walking became a slow shuffle. Today it might be diagnosed as lumbar spinal stenosis, a narrowing of the spinal canal caused by calcification in the vertebrae. Eastman grew depressed, as he had seen his mother spend the last two years of her life in a wheelchair from the same condition. On March 14, 1932, Eastman died by suicide with a single gunshot to the heart, leaving a note which read, "My work is done. Why wait?" His funeral was held at St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Rochester; he was buried on the grounds of the company he founded at Kodak Park in Rochester, New York.

His former home at 900 East Avenue in Rochester, New York was opened as the George Eastman House International Museum of Photography and Film in 1949.

In Photos: Remembering controversial photographer F. Holland Day

July 8, 2014 /Photography News/ Born 150 years ago, on July 8, 1864, Fred Holland Day was a dedicated aesthete and well-known figure in turn-of-the-century Boston. He was one of the earliest advocates of Pictorial photography in America and, like Alfred Stieglitz (with whom he corresponded until they had a serious disagreement around 1902), he tirelessly wrote articles, mounted exhibitions, and encouraged like-minded photographers who supported the medium's artistic potential.

'Youth sitting on a stone'', 1907, F. Holland Day. Model is the Italian Nicola Giancola.

Day's life and works had long been controversial, since his photographic subjects were often nude male youths. Pam Roberts, in F. Holland Day (Waanders Pub, 2001; catalog of a Day exhibition at the Van Gogh Museum) writes: "Day never married and his sexual orientation, whilst it is widely assumed that he was homosexual, because of his interests, his photographic subject matter, his general flamboyant demeanor, was, like much else about him, a very private matter."

Male nude, F. Holland Day. Source: Scan from the book ''Suffering the ideal''.
Day spent much time among poor immigrant children in Boston, tutoring them in reading and mentoring them. One in particular, the 13-year-old Lebanese immigrant Kahlil Gibran, went on to fame as the author of The Prophet.

Probably his best-known work is an 1898 series of more than 250 photographs portraying the Passion of Christ, in which he posed as Jesus, training for the role by losing weight and letting his hair and beard grow. What is usually shown from this series is the group known as “The Seven Last Words of Christ,” seven portraits that refer to Jesus’ statements from the time of his crucifixion until his death. In each photograph Mr. Day, in character, assumed what he felt were facial expressions consonant with Jesus’ ordeal.
The Last Seven Words of Christ, 1898, F. Holland Day
Day often made only a single print from a negative. He used only the platinum process, being unsatisfied with any other, and lost interest in photography when platinum became unobtainable following the Russian Revolution.

F. Holland Day died on November 12, 1933.

Since the 1990s Day's works have been included in major exhibitions by museum curators, notably in the solo Day retrospective at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts in 2000/2001 and similar shows at the Royal Photographic Society in England and the Fuller Museum of Art. Art historians are once again taking an interest in Day, and there are now significant academic texts on Day's homoerotic portraiture, and its similarities to the work of Walter Pater and Thomas Eakins.

Day's house at 93 Day Street, Norwood, Massachusetts is now a museum (The F. Holland Day House & Norwood History Museum), and the headquarters of the Norwood Historical Society.
