#170: We All Want To Be Steve McCurry

This week, prompted by a member of the OTP G+ Community, we begin with a bit of follow up on the discussion from last week about the influence of Robert Frank. Also, there is no best, but there just might be a best for you. Plus, a terrific photographer that neither one of us had ever heard of. Pinup photographer Bunny Yeager is our Photographer of the Week.

This week, we’re discussing a recent New York Times article about Robert Frank, specifically the breadth of his influence on photography and the degree to which he either pursued or avoided fame and celebrity. We also discuss a few news items sent in by listeners, including an interesting piece about a new book by David Bailey which seems to be comprised mostly of mistakes from the darkroom. Rebecca Norris Webb is our Photographer of the Week.

#168: This Is Not How We Play Bridge

20130107-lens-webb-slide-TI5U-superJumbo

This week, we geek out a little over the New Horizons images of Pluto. Think about this: it will take four months to receive all of the data from nearly 4 billion miles away. We also discuss Chris Arnade’s photos from Hunt’s Point and whether or not being a good person is unethical. Plus, can you sell out as an artist anymore? Magnum photographer Alex Webb is our Photographer of the Week.

This week, we talk about change and some of the things that means for photographers in a market that never seems to stop. How do you view your own work and are there ways that viewing it differently could lead in new or exciting directions? Also, an interesting discussion around the NY Times article we teased last week with Cindy Sherman and Laurie Simmons. Larry Sultan is our Photographer of the Week.

This week, we discuss the TED talk we mentioned last week by Jimmy Nelson and how things aren’t always as they seem or as we want them to be. Also, we’re all making stuff and it’s okay to want it to be liked. Plus, generational changes in the art market: important or just theater? Rondal Partridge is our Photographer of the Week.
