Aline Smithson on 52 Editions

Aline Smithson of Lenscratch fame, is the featured photographer on 52 Editions this week. The print, titled Favorite Condiment, was taken on a road trip to Death Valley. If you are interested in purchasing, the details are as follows:

8.5″x11″ Archival Pigment Print
Limited Edition of 275
$45.00 Unframed
$125.00 Framed

This edition will remain at this price for a week. After that date, if not sold out, it will be available in the catalog at a price of $75.

If you are interested, go to the 52 Editions site.

Created by Arnaud Gregori, 52 Editions presents a new original photograph, each week. Here is what what it’s all about:

52 Editions is the anti-gallery

Our weekly goal: to demolish the misconception that collecting great photography is a privilege solely for the hoity-toity. We’re knocking it off its pedestal, and bringing it live, to your walls.

As the cliche goes, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. And the eye behind 52 editions, Arnaud Gregori, is no ordinary beholder. A curator and all around international man of the photo world, Gregori is also a self-proclaimed French snob. Translation: he has the exquisite taste and the chops to back that up, having spent hardcore time working with pro-photogs. Seriously, trust a frere.

Here’s how it works: each week, 52 Editions features a different photograph for $45, published in a limited edition of 275. This postmodern approach to art dealing is more about spreading shutterbug love than making a buck. It’s contagious, let’s start a pandemic…

The photographs we feature are selected on a case-by-case basis. So, if Gregori thinks its good, it doesn’t matter whether the artist is an amateur or professional, famous or anonymous. It doesn’t matter to our prices either.

Making each photo inexpensive means if you love it, you can buy it. If we have it our way (and artsy-fartsy elitists be damned, we mean to!) a piece of art you’ve purchased isn’t always a bank-breaking, life-long commitment. It’s a gift to yourself, or a gift for another

We hope to continuously expose you (you didn’t really think you’d get through this without a darkroom pun, did you?!) to great works of art that will make your day as much as they make ours.

Most photographed landmarks

I came across a report generated by four scientists from Cornell University using the geo-tagging of photographs in Flickr. Taking the data from over thirty five million photographs, they were able to discern certain patterns, like movement of photographers around the city of New York and San Francisco, or the most photographed landmarks.
Now while most of the sites did not surprise me that much, what did surprise me was the 5th most photographed landmark in New York and the 28th most photographed in the world. The Chrysler Building? The Empire State building? Yankee Stadium? Hell no. It is the mid-town Manhattan Apple store. That’s right.

If it is new, shiny, and made by Apple, we’ll not only buy it but we’ll photograph the hell out of it. *(see Mac Book Wheel)

Here is a peek at the list.

Landscape reconsidered: Photography and land-based art from the Lannan Foundation

An-My Lę,29 Palms: Night Operations III2003-2004

The work of nine artists will be featured in Manmade: Notions of Landscape from the Lannan Collection. Landscape is often thought of as a pristine wilderness, uninhabited and unmarred by human presence, despite the fact that for many decades now landscape has in practice been represented as incontrovertibly interconnected with mankind and the land itself has been the very material of art making.

Manmade is an exhibition primarily of photography, including images of James Turrell’s earthwork project Roden Crater, as well as a significant Robert Smithson installation. The exhibition will be on display at the New Mexico Museum of Art October 9, 2009, through January 10, 2010.

One of the threads that runs through the Santa Fe-based Lannan Foundation collection is an exploration of man and the landscape-not landscape in its most literal sense, but landscape as a construction of meanings and relationships that are always morphing, growing, decaying, and exploding. These various facets of landscape include the natural, the cultural, the social, and the political. Everywhere human presence, for good or bad, is evident and our relationship to our environment is always under negotiation.

The Lannan Foundation works related to landscape are never of the sort that is a celebration purely of a sublime or pristine nature; rather they are of the terrain inscribed with all manner of human interaction, including manmade creations meant to guide our way through the oceans, earthworks, human-aided natural disaster, and the theatre of war.

World Toy Camera Day 2009

I came across this in my firmly seated travels today. So for all of you toy camera junkies out there, you have something to look forward to. World Toy Camera Day 2009.


A World Toy Camera Day community affair with like minded toy camera photographers from all over the globe who take part on this day in the month of October. A day where we wake up in the wee hours of the morning and load all of our favorite plastic cameras like the Holga, Diana, Brownies and the like and end the day with our Low-fi, Low-brow, blurry and ridiculously out of focus snap shots. A day also invented by Becky Ramotowski who took the idea from World Pinhole Photography Day. Her idea spawned a world wide annual event using toy cameras and shooting endless rolls of 120 and Polaroid film…oh and even some crappy 35mm too…and has been in circulation for nine years now. See you all there on October 17, 2009! “

Our first picks from The Fractionmag Flickr group

For me it was a tough call between two photos but in the end Jennifer Becker’s image “Lake Hoptacong” won out. You can see more of her work at Jennifer Becker Photography

We will be doing this every Monday so add some photos to the Flickr group.


Lake Hopatcong

I chose Thomas Bertilsson’s (monolight) photograph. The simplicity of a pinhole camera and the beauty of a silver gelatin print. Love it! Check out the rest of Thomas’ work on flickr.

Photo Services

I rarely print my own color work anymore. Between all of the other things going on and the cost of (un-named company here) inks, I print test prints here at the house for editing and critiques. When it comes to final prints I generally outsource it. This can be an extremely frustrating experience. Every lab has a different profile and so on. It took me a while to even find a lab that would print and develop film for me.

I won’t go into my own lab and my experiences with them because yours could end up being very different. I will however pass on an extremely long list of imaging services I came across in my search.

What did I find in my search, besides some really outdated websites? Some labs do it all, developing and printing, while some specialize in one or the other. Prices vary quite a bit and hopefully it has something to do with quantity and quality. Some labs provide profiles of their printers and some don’t.

Hope this helps some of you. -js
