editor’s note

As an amateur songwriter, I’m a fan of demo tapes. I particularly like The Beatles’ ‘Anthology 2,’ which includes John Lennon’s demo of “Strawberry Fields Forever” sung just with an acoustic guitar. About 12 seconds in, he abruptly stops, unhappy with how he’s playing, and mutters, “Can I do it…can I do it.” He then proceeds to play the song quite differently, more in keeping with how he’ll eventually record it with the rest of the band. What’s fascinating is you hear a master songwriter making a minor edit but one that will result in one of the keystone songs in popular music. For me, this issue functions in a similar manner. It includes thoughts and observations from several of the best photographers working in the business today. Each provides valuable…

keith carter: fifty years

Last year, University of Texas Press published Keith Carter: Fifty Years, which compiled five decades of the photographer’s search for the soul in the ordinary. The collection of 250 images takes readers on a visual journey through a dream world that Carter often captures in the quiet realities of daily life around his adopted east Texas hometown of Beaumont. While Carter, whose highly collectible work is in museums from the National Portrait Gallery in Washington to the George Eastman Museum in Rochester, New York, does explore the world camera-in-hand, he vows to never end his love affair with the South and its rich storytelling traditions.

duane michals: empty new york

Travel to the Soviet Union during the darkest days of the Cold War as an American was unusual, but for Duane Michals, the unusual has proved to be the norm. Throughout his career, the highly regarded fine-art photographer has embraced the commercial world and scoffed at the idea that it’s “selling out.” In 1964-’65, the Pennsylvania-born New York City transplant explored the streets of his adopted home, at times when the city was virtually void of foot and vehicular traffic. His almost “Twilight Zone” view of the Big Apple allows us to study this unique metropolis without any human distractions. Most of the images from these early, camera-in-hand urban expeditions have laid dormant until the publication of Empty New York (Enitharmon Editions), a time capsule of sorts opened up in 2019, unveiling…

a river runs through them

Kingdoms may come, kingdoms may go Whatever the end may be Old Father Thames keeps rolling along Down to the mighty sea So go the lyrics of the 1933 ballad “Old Father Thames.” The song is an exhortation to Britons weathering the precarious period between two devastating wars to keep their chins up and their character steady, like the river that flows through their capital city. Along the banks of that tidal river, the stories of their everyday lives unfolded, and extraordinary events took place. For millennia, the Thames has been a nexus for all manner of human activity, from commerce and labor to religion and leisure to struggles with nature and personal triumphs and tragedies. It’s no surprise, then, that an artist like Julia Fullerton-Batten would find inspiration there. The…
