Street Cops

Between 1978 – 1981 photographer Jill Freedman traveled with the police of the Ninth and Midtown South Precincts in cruisers and on foot patrol documenting their daily operations. A resulting series of photos and quotes were made into a book in 1982. If you can find a copy, it’s worth picking up.

Printables: Is documentary-style photography dead?

nan-goldin-ballad-of-sexual-dependency

Nan Goldin writes in the afterword of the rerelease of The Ballad of Sexual Dependency:

“I am terrified that everything I believe about photography, about this work, is over because of the computer and easy manipulation of images it facilitates. This work was always about reality, the hard truth, and there was never any artifice. I have always believed that my photographs capture a moment that is real, without setting anything up.”

Kate Wolf dissects “photography’s ability to factually represent a certain version of the truth” in the LA Review of Books

Mummers

Public drunken-ness, sequins measured by the ton and puddles of urine are the hallmarks of New Years Day in Philadelphia. The Mummers Parade lasts for over twelve hours on January 1st with elaborately dressed revelers marching up Broad Street starting at 9 am and eventually stumbling down Two Street in the dark. Short of hitting a cop, you’d need to try pretty hard to get arrested at this annual event. Accusations and half-hearted denials of racism and homophobia are a routine part of the parade tradition, which has been a staple occurrence in the city since the early 1800’s (but only banned black face in 1964).
