Photographs Not Taken: A Collection of Photographers' Essays, 2nd Revised Edition by Will Steacy
English | March 27th, 2012 | ASIN: B00CGNPVDU, ISBN: 0983231613 | 223 Pages | EPUB | 0.57 MB

Photographs Not Taken is a collection of photographers’ essays about failed attempts to make a picture. Editor Will Steacy asked each photographer to abandon the conventional tools needed to make a photograph—camera, lens, film—and instead make a photograph using words, to capture the image (and its attendant memories) that never made it through the lens. In each essay, the photograph has been stripped down to its barest and most primitive form: the idea behind it.

Ellis Island's Famous Immigrants by Barry Moreno

But within the great immigrant waves there also came plucky and talented individualists, artists, and dreamers.

Jazz, Gypsy, Klezmer | Country: Australia | Label: Not On Label (Monsieur Camembert Self-Released)

Monsieur Camembert's interpretations traverse styles rarely if ever associated with Cohen, including Hot Swing, free-jazz, tango, latin, klezmer etc etc. So what prompted Camembert to do Cohen? Yaron Hallis, leader of the group, explains for years our most requested song has been Cohens Dance Me To The End Of Love, and many fans have suggested we do a whole night of Cohen. Its quite thrilling to finally take on this body of material, and be joined by guest singers I so greatly admire, who on the most cerebral and instinctive level, connect with and interpret his songs with such raw beauty there are lots of Australian singers I was tempted to approach for the show, but very few had the quality in their voice that I felt was especially suited to interpret his music. With Cohen, absolutely every word counts, and for the material to really work, there has to be vulnerability, sensuality and complete emotional truth.
