JSP Visual Week In Review ~ 11.20.21

This was one of those fly-by weeks. Not really sure where it went.

The usual ups and downs. Trying to keep the ups going longer than the downs, but aren’t we all?

So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past, as F. Scott Fitzgerald once famously wrote.

I missed the eclipse this week. Thursday was busy, a corporate shoot gig (even put on a tie, see above) and I was exhausted Thursday night and slept soundly into Friday. Thought about setting my alarm for 3:30 a.m., but just didn’t. I’m a bit bummed – saw some photos from friends and probably should have.

This weekend will be busy, too.

Tomorrow, I’m doing portrait session with a young musician in Asbury Park at a studio there. Today I’m heading down to do some pre-lighting and try to work on some concepts.

The famed rock photographer, Danny Clinch, is celebrating the five-year anniversary of his Transparent Clinch Gallery with some crate sales of his photos and a little shin ding tomorrow evening. Hopefully, I’ll have time to take in some of it.  (I was at the “official” opening five years ago).

Then a short work week this week. First major holiday for my family without my Pop. I’ll spend Thanksgiving with Mom (but will see my kids on Wednesday).

Our boats, they beat on against the current.

Try to be good human this week.


This Week’s Links:

What I Read This Week: Just not getting into The Anderson Tapes so I’ve put it down. Downloaded a version of Classic Short Stories on the Kindle. Catch a Falling Clown is still in progress, not bad.

What I Watched This Week: A bunch of stuff – The new Gordon Parks documentary, Choice of Weapon, on HBO.  Highly recommend if you have it. I also watched the Malfunction: The Dressing Down of Janet Jackson on Hulu. If focuses on the Super Bowl incident and how that affected her career (negatively) and how it affected Justin Timberlake’s (pretty much not at all). Boy, was she scapegoated.

Listen: Short audio interview with Gordon Parks from 1990 on NPR’s Fresh Air

RIP: Three stellar photographers passed this week: Music photographer Mick Rock, documentary photographer Latif al-Ani, and photojournalist Tom Stoddard.

Watch: Long Live Mick Rock

Watch: Gibson TV’s profile of music photographer Ross Halfin

France24: Afghanistan’s disappearing camera boxes

ArtNews: New documentary looks to position Eaweard Muybridge as an essential photographer

Photoshelter: How photographer (and my buddy) Drew Gurain captured Yo Yo Ma for MasterClass
