I really love that this photog’ still shoots film and yes I want his camera!
Any photographer who still shoots film today knows all too well the meaning of the phrase “slim pickings,” whether it be in regards to film, developing labs, chemistry, darkroom equipment and even cameras. Sure, we all rely on a stock pile of vintage cameras that the majority of the world doesn’t…

One of the most remarkable things we’ve encountered when researching the Kennedy assassination. The moment when Boston Symphony conductor Erich Leinsdorf announce the assassination to the crowd, in a broadcast being carried live on WGBH. The orchestra then plays Beethoven’s “Funeral March” to the stunned crowd. Listen. More information here.

This is amazing
Favorite photos from Sanders Family Christmas
Christmas is around 70 days away. The Christmas theater season is even closer.
My friend, Cathe Hall Payne is directing The Sanders Family Christmas this year at On Stage Atlanta. She gathered the cast early for a promo shoot. Here are my favorites from that day.
It is always great fun to photograph theater people.
A year before her first story was published, Eudora Welty was working as a junior publicity agent for the Works Progress Administration, documenting the effects of the Great Depression on rural Mississippi. She traveled from town to town taking snapshots that she would later develop in a darkroom set up in her kitchen.
"Making pictures of people in all sorts of situations, I learned that every feeling waits upon its gesture, and I had to be prepared to recognize this moment when I saw it," she wrote of those experiences. "These were things a story writer needed to know."
Some of her photographs have just gone on display at the Wiljax Gallery in Cleveland, Mississippi. Presented in conjunction with the Eudora Welty Foundation, “Eudora Welty: 27 Portraits” is a small exhibition that reveals Welty as a gifted photographer and offers viewers a unique glimpse into the Depression-era South.
We at the OA are huge fans of Welty’s camerawork. One of her photos graced the cover of our second issue, back in 1992. Her portraiture, like her writing, is subtle, beautiful, and without pretention. Even if she hadn’t become a major voice in Southern literature, her pictures merit viewing in their own right.
The exhibit runs until October 25. For more information, check out the gallery website.
