SCAD Style Photography Event

Friday, May 16th
SCAD Style Event: “Reflection of a Man” Lecture by Jerrie Marcus Smith and Allison V. Smith
Friday, 5:30 p.m., Red Gallery, 201 E. Broughton St., Savannah, Ga.

Stanley Marcus was known the world over as an innovative marketer and retailer with a refined sense of taste and style whose leadership transformed his family's Dallas clothing store, Neiman Marcus, into a globally recognized arbiter of fashion. His refined sensibility was also expressed in a very private passion for photography, shared only with family and close friends. Marcus's daughter, Jerrie Marcus Smith, and his granddaughter, Allison V. Smith, celebrate this passion in “Reflection of a Man,” a representative selection of the thousands of photographs Marcus shot on business trips in Europe, on vacations in Mexico, and during family celebrations. A question-and-answer session will follow the lecture. For more information, visit SCAD Style.

bobby fiedler to photograph the whole of iowa!

A couple months back I got a note from SCAD mfa Bobby Fiedler, who linked me to a new site that is publishing the work he and a friend are doing. They are essentially trying to document all 99 counties in the state of Iowa over the next two years for an eventual book. The images currently posted seemed to me to bode well for the project (as above)... check them out at and see what you think.

You Bet Your Tintype, Buckaroo

ONE fairly reliable way to tell if you are in a part of the country where people still herd cattle for a living is the frequent and unself-conscious use of the word cowboy as a verb.
As in: “Buck got a good scholarship to go to college, but he turned it down. All he wanted to do was cowboy.”

For more than 20 years the photographer Robb Kendrick, a longtime contributor to National Geographic, has traveled around the United States, Canada and northern Mexico visiting just such places, increasingly rare ones where development has been kept at bay and discouraging words seldom are heard, at least on cellphones, which stop working a hundred miles from the nearest tower.

Mr. Kendrick fits in well not only because he is a sixth-generation Texan, raised in ranch country in the state’s panhandle, but also because of the unusual method of photography he favors, one patented and popularized at a time when the idea of the American cowboy was itself just being created.

He doesn’t need batteries or memory cards or even film for his pictures. Mostly he just needs time, patience and lots of elbow grease. And as he labors, moving methodically from beneath the hood of his wooden box camera to a portable field darkroom, bearing wet iron plates that he has painstakingly prepared, he thinks of himself not as simply making pictures but also as taking part in the world of the cowboys who are the subjects of his otherworldly tintype portraits.

National Competition for Photos and Photo-Based Artwork

Exhibition Dates: July 30-August 23, 2008
Fee: $30 for up to five jpgs
Submit online only at

Artists are encouraged to interpret the theme “Blow-Up” broadly and in original ways. From a photographic enlargement, to the theme of alienation from the eponymous movie, from explosions to angry “blow-ups” to inflatables, from the silly to the sublime. No limits on size or media, as long as photography is a significant element. Color or black and white.

HARVEY STEIN is a photographer, teacher, lecturer, and author of four books of photographs: Parallels: A Look at Twins (1978); Artists Observed (1986); Coney Island (1998); and Movimento: Glimpses of Italian Street Life (2006). Stein’s photographs have been published in magazines such as The New Yorker, Time, Life, Esquire, and Smithsonian, as well as major photo magazines. He has had 70 one-person exhibits in the U.S. and Europe, and his photographs are in scores of public and private collections around the world.
