Comments on: Peopled Landscapes http://2point8.whileseated.org/2007/04/27/peopled-landscapes/ A wide-open view of the practice of street photography by Michael David Murphy, While Seated. Thu, 15 Dec 2011 18:48:58 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.10 By: Michael David Murphy http://2point8.whileseated.org/2007/04/27/peopled-landscapes/comment-page-1/#comment-20044 Mon, 30 Apr 2007 12:31:39 +0000 http://2point8.whileseated.org/?p=185#comment-20044 Nils, it’s a poster of the space shuttle. Trust me! 😉

Chuck, that blobby confidence required layers work in Pshop. No stone unturned!

To your question, I don’t think these necessitate large cameras, though the extra detail doesn’t hurt. Andrew Long’s placed a bunch of Robert Frank nodes on the map on flickr, for what it’s worth.

Didn’t Timothy O’Sullivan put people in the photos for scale? My thought was that these could be more than a placing, for scale, that the human subject was as important as the landscape and both would combine to create something new.

So a question: does this automatically mean that peopled landscapes involve a level of detail requiring larg(er) formats than plain old digital or 35mm film? Because all of the examples cited seem to be view camera guys. It seems to me that many of Robert Franks images from way back in the 50’s played with this concept of the people in landscape in a very grainy, low-res kind of way. Remember the miners leaning against a wall in some Welsh town? Sorry not to have a real cite. But clearly the idea has been around for a long time, if not explicitly discussed. Now that I think about it, some of my favorite William Henry Jackson images put somebody into the landscape, if only to give it scale, although he clearly understood that the visual potential went beyond that.

I did see some unfortunate wasted opportunities for interesting photographs though on some of the frames, rest are desolate snapshots no story nothing that grabs at me.

Is it just me, or have you noticed how it can sometimes look like the man is looking at a giant poster on a wall? In fact there’s nothing there to say he isn’t. Which would arguably put the photo into a different category on your graph 😉

Great selection of photographs too. And no workshop on street photography will now be complete without your little graph being included in the talk.
