I eat, drink, sleep photography, but due to constraints, I have been loosing my inspiration lately. Theologians back then called this “Dark night of the soul”. My partner-friend-self appointed grandpa Don suggested I learn about the past, I reluctantly accepted. He’s turning senile but he occasionally is the voice of wisdom…ish. But what do you know? The old coot was right! (Plus one of his photos is now part of Flickr top 500. Won’t here the end of it). The insights I got were so useful and uplifting, I had to make an article out of them in the spirit of the uber popular “Gleanings” articles.
I am starting with Lee Friedlander, as I feel that I understand where he is coming from. Here’s some insights I gleaned from his work. I am sure you can also get a thing or two.
