Quote from: JeffS on April 15, 2019, 12:58:40 amHey Josh, if you want far more in depth, personal discussion with William, there's a neat site called Luminous Landscape that has almost two hours of videos....
Quote from: Dan Wells on April 15, 2019, 10:50:17 amThe William Neill interview is about the best piece I've seen on LuLa since Michael's day (and I appreciate written interviews)... This (and many of Alain Briot's reflections) are the kind of content that doesn't show up on other photography sites.Josh, would you consider allowing free access to a limited number of articles for non-members? This has an audience outside of photographers - In addition to being a landscape photographer, I am an incoming student at Harvard Divinity School this fall, especially interested in our spiritual connection to the natural world (after a first half of a career spent as an ecologist). I can think of a lot of divinity school folks who'd find this fascinating and gorgeous, but aren't serious photographers, so they wouldn't be likely subscribers.Maybe the way to do it is to give members some number of article passes each year, either to let one person see an article, or as something you can forward to multiple people in an email? I don't know what the technical issues might be, or whether there would be a worry about losing subscribers by letting people pass articles around?
Quote from: josh.reichmann on April 15, 2019, 05:30:21 amJeff, This is a new piece about a new book by William. I suggest reading it to find out more. Or you can simply enjoy the images which are his own selection and show a small cross section of his celebrated career. They are a testament to a very generous and refined photographer, one I enjoy communicating with very much.Josh
Quote from: email@example.com on April 18, 2019, 09:26:38 pm... How about a simple question: William, what constitutes objective beauty in your work? It's not about you, Josh, it's about the person you are interviewing. You needn't suggest the answer in your question. Bill Neill is completely capable of fashioning his own answer without your assistance...
Quote from: Slobodan Blagojevic on April 21, 2019, 06:30:31 pmThat is an unfair criticism and a rather simplistic view on the role of an interviewer. Any halfwitted intern, if Josh had one, even without ever seeing a single image of Mr. Neill, could have come up with such a question above. Or: "Tell me more about your work, Mr. Neill." Art is a communication. A dialog between the artist and a viewer. Sometimes silent, sometimes verbal. Art does not exist without its impact and imprint on a viewer. Therefore, it is perfectly legitimate for a viewer, in this case the interviewer, to express their views and how they perceive the art. That's what a dialog is, not two monologues, past each other, but an engaged conversation. In this particular case, Mr. Neill could agree or disagree with the Josh's premise, or offer his own views.
Quote from: Rob C on April 22, 2019, 04:35:53 amGirls, girls! Think of Shakespeare's great work: Much Ado about Nothing... that was also included in a First Folio if not, perhaps, in one of LuLa's.But hey, speaking about comedies, we have yet another non-politician comedian elected to public office, so war in Ukraine will end, Putin retreat in abject fear and the Donald have a new companion whose hand to hold tightly, very tightly, in unholy wedlock! NK is sure to crumble next.;-)
