Educational  Materials

 

Before retiring, my career was as an educator. I have always enjoyed helping people learn things, and I've carried that on into retirement in various ways. The following were created for a series of workshops on photography at the Klamath Senior Center, in Klamath Falls, Oregon. Clicking on any of the underlined words will take you to whatever is being told about in the text. Feel free to download and print these things, share with anyone you want.

Photographers

 

Below are a few of my favorite photographers, with links to places you can see their work online.

  • Jay Maisel is a very prolific color photographer, who is also a colorful character! Here you can find some of his personal favorite photos. There is a great video about him and the bank building he lived in, here is a short trailer for the full movie. For those in Klamath Falls, the DVD of the movie can be checked out from the county library! It is called Jay Myself.

  • Michael Kenna does black and white photographs, usually square, often very minimal - we looked at some of his photographs in our workshop. Here is the link to his web page. I would look at either recent images, or go to the archives, find Japan, and then find Hokkaido.

  • Ernst Haas was one of the early pioneers of artistic color photography, and I find his photographs to be extremely creative. You can find some of his photos here. Try either Classic Color or New Color - under those, if you like nature, choose Creation. Otherwise, maybe choose America or New York.

  • Arnold Newman did environmental portraits of famous people, most in black and white. The word "environmental" means that he photographed them in an environment, and with props, that related to what they were known for. He photographed many artists, but also architects, elected officials, scientists, and others. There is no single good website to view a full selection of his images, but you can see some of his best here and here. (You may need to click "thumbnails" for the latter.)
