Sunday Night Notes : Rodriguez & Shulman

Its been a hectic week here in New York and its Sunday late night here as I’m trying to clear my mind to write a paper for my art history class. But as I have no real ideas at the time, I thought I’ll just warm up by updating you with some new information about whats been happening.

School has been really hectic, this weekend was spent in the classroom discussing images and strategies about getting access to photographic subjects with Joseph Rodriguez. For those who don’t know him, Joseph is a brilliant photojournalist and a amazing human being. His workshop was definitely one of the best I’ve ever attended. He’s worked with Nat Geo, BBC, Mother Jones etc and also teaches at ICP other than taking workshops. Whenever you have time, do have a look at his work on his website, its a real inspiration.

In case you’re looking for more inspiration, I’ve been watching a beautiful documentary on the legendary modern architectural photographer Julius Shulman called Visual Acoustics. Its easy to see how this brilliant photographer changed the way we look at architecture and how we look at light interact with our living spaces. A must watch!
