View Cameras

I've been at least low-level obsessed with view cameras since I started in photography seriously in 1980. I used to go by Ferrante-Dege, an old-line camera store in Cambridge, Massachusetts (I loved and miss old camera stores), to "visit" a resplendent Deardorff 5x7 they had on semi-permanent display (it was for sale, but didn't sell, so it was there for a long time). It was profoundly beautiful—well, to my photogeeky young self it was—and also profoundly unaffordable, which made me covet it all...

College admissions: long a murky cesspool of sports, affirmative action, government and benefactors

If you were laboring under the illusion that the admissions process at elite colleges is a meritocracy, stop. The college admissions cheating scandal comes as no surprise for those who have watched the process over the years. Parents want their kids in good schools because that reflects on them, not the kids. It does not matter if you are Jared Kushner’s dad getting him into Harvard by funding a building, or Forrest Gump’s mom doing the Greenbow, Alabama Middle School Principal to advance her so...

‘Solo’ Facts Revealed By Co-Writer Jonathan Kasdan, Plus Concept Art Reveals Ewok Cameo and More

Solo: A Star Wars Story is now available on digital, with the Blu-ray following soon. There’s no directors commentary track included with the release, so co-writer Jonathan Kasdan took the time to drop some Solo facts about the making of the film. While a commentary would’ve been great, this is the next best thing. In addition to that, some new Solo concept art reveals the film almost had an Ewok cameo, and more. A good commentary track on a movie can be like a mini-film school. You can lear...

This Week in Photography Books: Ron Koeberer

  I almost cut off my thumb in 2001. It’s true. I was making dinner for my girlfriend, and almost sliced it off on the jagged-lid of a Muir Glen tomato can. (Sorry for putting that visual in your head.) After the blood spurted on the wall, and after I called my landlord who told me to go to the hospital, and after I almost got driven across the city by a couple of drunk-guys, luckily, Jessie got home and drove me the half-mile to the closest ER. It’s 2018 now, and I’m only just getting my range ...

The Lost Rolls America Archive

  Last week, I said I like to shake things up. And I meant it. So today, we’re going to pivot away from book reviews, and bring you a special feature about the Lost Rolls America Archive, a project led by NYU professor Lauren M. Walsh, and photojournalist Ron Haviv. I wrote a piece about the endeavor for Lens in late 2016, just as it was getting started.
