A pop-up exhibition of works by legendary photographer Robert Frank comes to Tisch Library

 

The work of legendary photographer and filmmaker Robert Frank is coming to Tisch Library from October 6 to November 5, in a pop-up exhibition on its way around the world.

Titled Robert Frank Books and Films: 1947-2017, and featuring selections from Frank’s entire artistic body of work, the exhibition was conceived and designed by Frank and his publisher, Gerhard Steidl. Tisch will be the only Boston-area stop for the tour, which will include 50 universities, art schools, museums, and nonprofit spaces worldwide.

“We are very excited about this unique event, and the opportunity it presents to deepen the connection between Tufts and the art and photography communities,” said Dorothy Meaney, interim Tisch Library director. “We look forward to bringing people to campus and showcasing Tisch Library.”

The exhibition will include unframed prints of Frank’s photographs, interspersed with material from his books and films, on banners that will be destroyed after the exhibition, as requested by Frank. “The exhibition is unique in that it’s specifically created for each space. Students, faculty, staff, and visitors will encounter Frank’s books and films in our lobby, hallways, café, and even a stairwell,” Meaney said.

Is this the future of photography? A 52 Megabits Camera

WSJ reported about a new camera that is amazingly doing a good job with taking Multiple photos at the same time. and make a 52 Megabits photos out of the camera

Light’s pocket-size L16 replaces one big lens with 16 small ones, plus some super-smart software.  Light’s L16 was a radical design concept when it was originally introduced in October, 2015 — but the concept has become a reality, as the company is now shipping the first production units to its pre-order customers. The final design is quite similar to the concept it showed off back then, with a few minor tweaks, and, despite some setbacks, customers are probably excited to get their hands on the innovative shooter.

 

It sounds like shipping will be a relatively slow-moving process, as the company takes pains to note that it’s focused on quality assurance for new customers, but hopefully some early users will get their hands on the L16 very soon, and can share their impressions of the novel photographic device.
