LensWork - Photography and the Creative Process

Brooks Jensen

Random Observations on Art, Photography, and the Creative Process. These talks focus on the creative process in fine art photography. LensWork editor Brooks Jensen side-steps techno-talk and artspeak to offer a stimulating mix of ideas, experience, and observations from his 50 years as a fine art photographer, writer, and publisher. Topics include a wide range of subjects from finding subject matter to presenting your work, and building an audience.

Included in this RSS Feed are the LensWork Podcasts — posted weekly, typically 10-20 minutes exploring a topic a bit more deeply — and our almost daily Here's a thought… audios (extracted from the videos.) Here's a thought… are snippets, fragments, morsels, and tidbits from Brooks' fertile (and sometimes swiss-cheesy) brain. Usually just a minute or two. Always about photography and the art life.

Brooks Jensen is the publisher of LensWork, one of the world's most respected and award-winning photography publications, known for its museum-book quality printing and luxurious design. LensWork has subscribers in over 73 countries. He is the author of 13 books on photography and the creative life -- the latest books are The Best of the LensWork Interviews (2016), Photography, Art, and Media (2016), and the four annual volumes of Seeing in SIXES (2016-2019).

    HT0967 - Shorpy and Dickens

    2:43

    HT0967 - Shorpy and Dickens Presenting history is a fine thing - - and photography does it well. But photography as a fine art is a different thing, and like Dickens, has the potential to preserve an historical view at the same time it presents ideas that are relevant today.

    HT0966 - Purposeful Viewing

    2:43

    HT0966 - Purposeful Viewing So much of fine art photography is destined for the background; think of the image whose purpose is to add décor to a room. But then there is photography that is targeted to purposeful viewing, for example in books. Purposeful viewing is a subset of fine art photography.

    12:54

    LW1269 - The Great Challenge The challenges of the art life are many, but perhaps the greatest of them all is making your own work that speaks from your own heart and soul - - especially when that puts you in conflict with the imagery the world expects you to make as a fine art photographer.

    HT0965 - Uelsmann and His Research Laboratory

    2:43

    HT0965 - Uelsmann and His Research Laboratory The painter does not begin with a fully-conceived canvas, the sculptor with a fully-conceived piece. They allow for a dialogue to evolve, to develop, and as far as I'm concerned the darkroom is truly capable of being a visual research laboratory, a place for discovery, observation and meditation. - - Jerry Uelsmann/P>

    HT0964 - The Z-axis

    2:43

    HT0964 - The Z-axis I was going to record a new video about the z-axis when I realized I'd already discussed this as a short podcast many, many years ago. It's still valid, so forgive me if I just replay that podcast here.

    HT0963 - Soundscape and Photography

    2:43

    HT0963 - Soundscape and Photography For as long as I can remember, I've thought there was a relationship between the ambient sound we hear and the photographs we see. For example, I struggle to appreciate landscape photography in the hubbub and activity of a gallery opening. The surrounding noise taints my appreciation of the landscapes. Similarly at home, I think about photographs differently depending on the music I'm playing in the background.

    HT0962 - Dialog

    2:43

    HT0962 - Dialog Modern novelists know that dialog is much more immersive and captivating than mere description. How can we take advantage of this is in photography which appears to be so much about description and not at all about dialog?

    HT0961 - Honey, I Shrunk the World

    2:43

    HT0961 - Honey, I Shrunk the World With the exception of macro photography, every other kind of photography shrinks the world. This is compounded because distance and perspective shrink it even more. This implies certain conventions that simply cannot be avoided.

    LW1268 - The Photogenic and the Other 98 Percent of the World

    12:54

    LW1268 - The Photogenic and the Other 98 Percent of the World Why is it that we see the same subject matter in fine art photography over and over again? Is the rest of the world photographically impossible? Or have we just not yet figured out how to photograph it? You might also be interested in. . .

    LW1267 - The Moment

    12:54

    LW1267 - The Moment One of photograph's greatest strengths is its total immersion of the moment. If only our mind could so easily join our camera in the moment we might be better photographers.
