To be a photojournalist takes

experience, skill, endurence,

energy, salesmanship, organization,

wheedling, climbing, gatecrashing,

etc. – plus an eye and patience.

A photographer is an acrobat

treading the high wire of chance,

trying to capture shooting stars.

The magic of photography

is metaphysical. What you

see in the photograph isn’t

what you saw at the time.

The real skill of photography

is organized visual lying.

Today’s Quote of the Day person is Filmmaker & Photographer

Hollis Frampton…

 

Hollis Frampton (1936-1984) was an American  avant-garde 

filmmaker, photographer, writer/theoretician, and a pioneer of

digital art.

 

In 1956 Frampton began correspondence with Ezra Pound after

becoming interested in the literary generation of the 1880’s. In

the fall of 1957 he moved to Washington D.C. where he visited

Ezra Pound almost daily at St. Elizabeth’s hospital where Pound

was finishing part of his Cantos.

 

There, Frampton writes that he was “privy to a most meaningful

exposition of the poetic process by an authentic member of the

‘generation of the ‘80’s.’At the same time, I came to understand

that I was not a poet.”

A still photograph

is simply an

isolated frame

taken out of 

the infinite 

cinema.

Quote of the Day

July 6, 2009

The material of the artist lies not

within himself nor in the

fabrications of his imagination,

but in the world around him.

 

The element which gives life to

the great Picassos and Cezannes,

to the paintings of Van Gogh,

is the relationship of the artist

to context, to the truth of the real

world.

 

It is the way he sees this world and translates

it into art that determines whether the work

of art becomes a new and active force within

reality, to widen and transform man’s

experience.

 

The artist’s world is limitless. It can be found

anywhere far from where he lives or a few

feet away. It is always on his doorstep.
