BALTIMORE JAZZ SCENE 1975-76

I picked up this up from a local vintage store: the annual publication by Baltimore’s Left Bank Jazz Society, covering the years 1975-76. The Society was formed in the mid-1960s to promote jazz culture and events in the city and best as I can tell, they published a yearbook through most of their first 15 years. What I’ve included for you all to check out is a PDF of some of the pages within: photos, articles and my personal favorite: the ads.

Photography and sex in Amos Badertscher’s Baltimore

The Baltimore photographer Amos Badertscher has been cataloguing queer lives in his city since the 1960s: male sex workers and their girlfriends, the 1990s Baltimore and Washington club culture, transgender people, crack and heroin addiction, and the impact of AIDS. His is the largest extant photographic record of the short lives of hustlers (male sex workers) that I know of. Though he could by no means be described as famous, Badertscher enjoyed a brief period of academic notice with the public...

Norwegian liquor travels the world

People have different definitions of what it means to be well-traveled. For some, it means a big portion of your time is spent exploring new places. To others, it simply means racking up passport stamps. Every drop of Linie Aquavit, a spirit from Norway, is well-traveled regardless of how you define it. In fact, all of the Linie sold since 1821 has seen more of the world than the vast majority of humans. Before being bottled, Linie is aged in 500-liter barrels that previously held Oloroso she...

Joe's Version

Commenting on the two "Still Pond" images (above) in the "Editing Headaches" post, Joe Holmes wrote: "That's a tough edit. I like each image for a different, simple reason. I like the round clump of trees in the upper left in the first image, and it's a shame to cut it off. But I like the foreground framing grass in the second image. Composite image by Joe Holmes from files by Mike J. "So here's what I would do, and, in fact, did with your two examples: In Photoshop, I brought both images ...

This Week in Photography Books: Laura Larson

  Have you ever heard of Bitty Schram? (Probably not.) Don’t worry. It’s a pretty obscure Pop culture reference. (Even for me.) Bitty Schram is an actress who’s best known as the player in “A League of Their Own” at whom Tom Hanks shrieks, “There’s no crying in baseball!” But if you think this is a column about the World Series, (Red Sox vs Dodgers,) you’re very wrong. I don’t give a shit about baseball anymore. The steroid era, (and the fact that baseball’s boring,) quashed any love I might hav...

Wollam Gardens, a Cut-Flower Success Story  by  Susan Harris

My connection to Wollam Gardens, the cut-flower farm in the Virginia exurbs of D.C., starts with this ridiculously cute couple – Hillary Gottemoeller and Joe Harris.

I Broke Up With My Phone & Lived To Talk About It

When was the last time you had a full conversation without checking your phone in the middle of it? You know how it goes: nodding or mumbling a reply even though half your attention was on a viral video on your Facebook timeline. Would you be able to go through your workday without checking your phone at least once an hour, telling yourself that you need a break, or that the buzz is obviously a potential emergency. (Did reading these descriptions prompt you to check your phone just now...?)Smar...

The Best Work I Saw at Photo NOLA: Part 2

  If you live long enough, you’ll see all manner of science fiction come to life. Like right now, for instance. My busted hand is healing more slowly than I might like, so I just figured out I can dictate my column on my new-ish computer. It’s blowing my mind. So many of us use technology, these days, to take us out of our everyday world, away from the thoughts that clutter our minds. Whether we’re looking at computers, phones, tablets, watches, or television screens, digital reality transports ...

The Best Work I saw at the Filter Festival: Part 2

  This might seem like a long story, but bear with me. Back in the Spring, as I walked across Central Park with Patrice, a gray-robed Chinese monk stepped into my path, reached out, grabbed my hand, and put a wooden-beaded bracelet on it. He was quick, like a Shaolin monk, before I could think to refuse. So I said thanks, reached into my pocket and gave him a dollar. I turned to walk away, but in highly broken English, he pointed to his list, and showed me the previous person had given him $20. ...

The Surprising Way I Started My Media Career

One of the top questions I get asked is how I managed to land a job where I get paid to do what I love. While I wish I could share the secret recipe for marrying your passion to your bank account, the reality is that success takes a willingness to experiment, a ton of persistence, and a hearty dash of luck.This may surprise you, but when I got to college at Johns Hopkins University, I thought I wanted to study neuroscience. I quickly realized, however, that my interest was in storytelli...

Duckpin Bowling was a bit of a mystery to me...

... as I photographed these windows and signs yesterday at the Fountain Square Hotel Building in Indianapolis: Duckpin bowling originated in Baltimore in 1900:Ten-pin bowling used to strictly be a winter sport and most alleys closed during the summer except for a few that remained open to play odd bowling games using the smaller balls. Summer bowlers suggested that it might be interesting to trim the standard pins down to match the size of the small ball. Because it was much harder to get s...

Discover How an Early 20th Century Photographer Shaped Her Identity…

Back during the turn of last century, women generally were shying away from fields such as photography. There were, however, a few strong-minded women who took to this art and created an identity for themselves and in the process helped other women get out of their own little shell, bring out their skills and create a career and exposure for themselves. One such photographer is Frances Benjamin Johnston. Frances Benjamin Johnston was an American photographer and photojournalist who was well know...
