JSP Visual Week In Review ~ 01.08.22
This week I was thinking about legacy.
I was listening to a podcast and the speaker, Sean Tucker, was talking about his legacy.
He’s a prolific presence on YouTube, with a strong channel following. But he wrote a book that was published late last year, and he feels that’s more of a legacy for him. I just bought the book, actually. Came in yesterday.
Anyway, he said he feels the book will live longer than any YouTube video. And he started to talk about what the legacy is as us as photographer.
I was doing my 2.5 mile daily walk one day this week, listening to him talk about this. And started to think about what my legacy will be.
But not as a photographer. I’m not famous or prolific or anything like that.
My legacy, I think, will be my kids. They will keep me alive long after I’m gone.
So it’s imperative I present well to them. That I’m a good person, for them (well, for others as well, of course.) That I teach them some things that help them grow into great individuals.
Gotta say…that’s a little daunting.
Thankfully, all three are doing really well so far, thanks to their mom and me.
Let’s hope I can continue to do my part, hold up my end of the bargain, to continue developing them, my legacy.
This Week’s Links:
What I Read This Week: Still working on Ride The Pink Horse and Crime and Punishment. (C&P is going to take me a while, I think. It’s dense.)
What I Watched This Week: Don’t Look Up. I liked it. (But, geez, can’t anyone make a movie under two hours anymore??) Would love to hear your thoughts if you’ve seen it. And, man, DiCaprio…this cat’s an actor. Always good in everything he does.

UN Of Photography: A great one-hour discussion between Grant and Bill Shapiro. Put it on while your taking a walk, driving or cooking dinner. Interesting listen.
Chase Jarvis Podcast: How To Hack Your Creativity
The Guardian: Your Attention Didn’t Collapse. It was stolen.
“The tremendous development of the camera in recent years has been remarkable. Now almost anyone can take pictures, and most of them are doing it. But it is rather like giving a 6-year-old a pistol.” ~ Documentary photographer Arnold Genthe, in 1937, Still rings true, eh?
