Hurry it is almost finished!
San Francisco has always been good to me. It presents its many faces to the eye, and thus to myriad lenses. Isolating the pertinent facets and linking them together is job one for photo storytellers. Somehow this has always seemed obvious and therefore unremarkable to me. But it's the visual feast, The Grand Buffet that continues to wake up the camera. I need another lifetime to document the changes in this magic city.
Now some years have passed and Ernie Button has discovered something else (though he still finds himself in China fairly frequently). I have watched these particular images from the beginning and I initially wondered what they were: stormy sunset skies? The surface of the moon? The bottom of the sea? Breaking waves? Molten lava? The view of something unknown through a microscope? My mind ran... and then Button revealed his secrets. And now he is revealing the secret to a few hundred jurors in (…)

She is the daughter of a mother who showed her art galleries and Roman churches at a very young age, and of a researcher chemist father who loved to see her print her little photos with the resources available at the time.

In 1945 Sabine Weiss moved to a studio in Geneva, but in 1946 she decided to leave the city of her childhood to live in Paris. She knew there was no turning back. She asked Willy Maywald to become her assistant. In 1949, she met the painter Hugh (…)

We all have bodies of work that may go back many years. I often look back at images I made 40 years ago that I thought were unworthy or weak at the time.
