Kitchen Stories
« on: February 22, 2014, 11:14:07 am »

Wow! That was for a long time the most interesting and inspiring article. I do like to read gear reviews. And sometimes I do like the very technical articles for example about printing and color calibration. However this article is about pushing boundaries in photography.

And pushing boundaries as I understand it by taking images no one has taken before, and not by pondering over whether the 2345th pixel in the 234th row could be sharper by using an specific ball head. 

The kind of topic I would love to see more of.

Thank you!

Yup.
Fun Stuff, much more creative than bitching over F-Stops, Diffraction Limits, Camera Design or Color Accuracy.
More of that !

Thanks and a special thanks to Jackie.  We have more articles like this planned and in the works.  Jackie is one of the most refreshing photographers to meet in person.  A can do attitude with a creative mind and eye.  I have had a lot of fun with her and her equally talented husband Mike.  Her images are original and beautiful too see in print.  I hope we can convince her to contribute another article in the future.  I am happy she will be doing two workshops with us in the next year.

Wonderful article!
Her fun-loving attitude and photos are in a similar spirit to Rob C's "Miss Coke" photos.
Do please get more of her work.

Wonderful work.

It is not often that we see original ideas these days.

... and all shot in my backyard  :)

"In 2013 the larger body of work was printed and exhibited as monochrome prints at the Auckland Photo Festival and at the  Ballarat International Foto Biannele in Australia. I wanted to make the work more personal so I wrote around the edge of the prints, describing where the objects were found and what I thought about them.  I have added a unique texture overlay and border in order to the enhance the old time antique feel of the objects and to reinforce the connection of the viewer to their own memories."
I saw Jackie's show in Ballarat last year and it was among the best of the Biennale! I remember that as I walked around I kept thinking, the landscapes behind the kitchen stuff made wonderful images in themselves - then the utensils added a layer of playfulness that in no way detracted from the landscapes - THEN the words Jackie added to the edges just totally completed the works. A triumph of whimsy and vision!
It was all in all a very satisfying experience! Congratulations Jackie.

Jackie Ranken in Antarctica - a new version of penguins in flight, Kevin?
Sounds like even more fun down far south in 2015.

Love the flying toaster. I had never seen an egg poacher before.

Thanks for this article.

True. Very true.

Inspiring stuff. It's great to read Kevin's note that we will read more like this.

Kevin, you said (or perhaps it was implied, I cannot remember) when you came onboard you were going to bring some interesting things to the table. This qualifies, Jackie's concept is so far out & interesting. The results are pleasently unexpected sand refreshing. I like people that "draw outside the lines" Jackie you are one cool lady! Great story.

This is indeed refreshing and fun, but above all, very high quality. and the B&W work also has a flavour of the current trend, which is looking retro:)

If I may refer to it, there was a longer article in the February edition of f11 Magazine.

Nor mine, but I loved her 'Arial Abstracts':

Likewise, I'm not convinced I get what random things found in a kitchen photographed in front of landscapes is meant to say. I appreciate the spirit in which is has been done though rather hard to take seriously.
