Book highly recommended: “Image Makers, Image Takers”
I’ve been reading this book for the last few days. It’s basically a softbound book made up entirely of interviews of photographers and curators and gallery people. Author is Anne-Celine Jaeger. Oftentimes, these types of books would be hypey, and look-at-me, and I tend to roll my eyes and put them aside, but this Jaeger person asks some pretty good questions. (Although I’d love to submit some of my own real-world questions as well to her list). Most of the names are commonly-recognized photographers, but there were a couple I had not known of — especially Charles Freger. Other highlights in the content and candid answers were: Naomi Harris, Alec Soth, Salgado, Eugene Richards, and Stephen Shore. A very good book for a photographer at any point in their career.
What’s also interesting is how many of these leading photographers are still shooting film, and never migrated to digital. Coincidence?
