Why Quality Matters

with David Gallagher

Why are we as a society so hell bent on a “race to the bottom?” We lower quality, we lower expectations, we lower standards, and the aggregate of this race is an acceptance of lower quality in every facet of life. Well, I am not permitting this in my life…… are you?

Richard Sexton  Photographer as Visual Narrator: The Art of Storytelling

Photographer as Visual Narrator: The Art of Storytelling

with Richard Sexton

Richard Sexton began his career in professional photography in the 1970s. He is currently in the final stages of completing his 14th book—Enigmatic Stream: The Industrial Landscape of the Lower Mississippi River. His publishers have included The Historic New Orleans Collection; Chronicle Books, San Francisco; LSU Press, Baton Rouge, LA; Pelican Publishing, Gretna, LA; River Road Historical Society, Destrehan, LA; Oak Alley Foundation, Vacherie, LA; and Compass American Guides (imprint of Random House, New York). Each of his book projects has consisted of elaborate photo essays in which the primary narrative is visual, rather than verbal. Whether it's a book, an exhibit, a portfolio, or an editorial assignment, telling a story in pictures, is his main interest in photography. So much so that he sometimes describes himself as an author, photo essayist, or even raconteur, rather than a photographer. He will discuss the evolution of his career and the project based structure of his photographic work.

The Importance of Personal Work

A few months ago I was seriously thinking about closing the doors, or rather, just handing over the keys to my son, Caleb, and just walk away from it. Thank God for my friends, yoga, and wine. Then I saw this…

"THE ADVICE I LIKE TO GIVE YOUNG ARTISTS, OR REALLY ANYBODY WHO’LL LISTEN TO ME, IS NOT TO WAIT AROUND FOR INSPIRATION. INSPIRATION IS FOR AMATEURS; THE REST OF US JUST SHOW UP AND GET TO WORK. IF YOU WAIT AROUND FOR THE CLOUDS TO PART AND A BOLT OF LIGHTNING TO STRIKE YOU IN THE BRAIN, YOU ARE NOT GOING TO MAKE AN AWFUL LOT OF WORK." ...CHUCK CLOSE
