Erica McDonald – Scribbling In The Dark

July 30, 2009 | Filed Under Online Learning, Photography, Website | Leave a Comment 

Last week I mentioned how amazing it’s become online with all the great sites and posting where you can read/listen and watch posting/stories/videos about photography and photographers. A former student, Byron Fry thoughtfully sent me this link of interviews and talks that is quite extensive.

I’ve also taken a look at New York photographer Erica McDonald’s collection of her observations at photographer’s talks she’s attended. They’re different in that they are an interesting combination of straight reportage and quotes from the events combined with her own personal observations. She calls the series of reports Scribbling In The Dark as she’s usually taking the notes that will make up these postings in a darkened room as she listens to the presentations.

She’s also an excellent photographer, very nice stories and portraits to look through on her site.

I’ve posted a couple of new interviews over at Literary Photographer. One with Toronto based writer Ken McGoogan about his new book Race To The Polar Sea and the other with Victoria based artist Robert Amos and his James Joyce inspired artworks.
