Brooks Jensen – Folio Sample “Silva Lacrimosa”

Many followers of Black and White fine art photography are familiar with Brooks Jensen’s role as Creator, Publisher and Editor of Lenswork.

For years, Brooks has provided a platform for some of the best emerging photographers along side many photography masters. He publishes a beautiful quality magazine, available by subscription, as well as DVD-ROM extended editions of the magazine.

In recent editions, he has begun offering folios of his photographer friends … including his own folio presentations.

It is his impressive personal photographic work we would like to highlight in this article. From landscapes to abstracts, he has a wonderful sensibility for light, shadow, form and texture. Not a big believer in high priced art (if you have read his articles or listened to his podcasts) he keeps a focus on creating excellent value with his prints.

Take a brief tour of one of his folio offerings, “Silva Lacrimosa” (Tears of the Forest) and see what is meant by “craftsmanship”.

The fine art photography community owes Brooks a debt of gratitude for everything he has done in the past two decades. We hope he just “keeps on, keepin’ on” …

Pro Photographer Alert: New Issue of Rangefinder Magazine

In Article, Black and White Photography, Photographer on January 20, 2010 at 12:34 pm


The January issue of Rangefinder Magazine is out and it has multi-article coverage of the current state of Black and White photography.

While it was the only medium in the early days of photography, now there are obvious reasons image makers choose black and white over color. It seems to have become synonymous with two very important and distinctly different segments of the professional market: documentary photography and fine art photography.

Bill Hurter, Editor

Among some very well done pieces, it should be noted there is an article on Susan Burnstine, our “Best of Show” winner at Photo LA.

This magazine issue has not only good information for artists, but also gallerists and collectors as well.

We will be looking at some of the findings in this issue over the next few weeks. Stay tuned.
