As a test of the new Leica M Monochrom digital black-and-white camera, Magnum photographer Jacob Aue Sobol made a trek from Moscow to Ulan Bator to Beijing in 28 days, often making more than 1,000 photographs each day for 28 days straight. In this short video, he talks with Lens Culture founder Jim Casper about his adventures, and shares more than 30 of his top picks from that trip.
Photographer-Artist Jeff Cowen spoke about his work and approach to art in a conversation recorded at Michael Werner Kunsthandel in Köln Germany. Art Historian Jennifer Crowley and Lens Culture Director Jim Casper conducted the conversation.
Cowen makes original mural-size, sculptural, painterly photographic works that are visually stunning and beautiful but defy easy categorization. His comments offer insight into his working methods and goals.
This video is a 13-minute edit that contains excerpts from the public conversation that ranged over a wide range of topics.
In an attempt to understand why artists create the work they make, we decided to launch Artist Talk in September of 2008, a video series which allows the viewer to hear, from the artist, the reasons behind making each piece on exhibit.
This video was filmed during Gary Briechle's 2011 exhibition "Photographs". The show page can be found here http://bit.ly/pEaOKE
