Pointed in the direction of The Guardian /photography Cickens and Corsets.

Hope you can find it OK.  A series of haunting B+W images from the 30's.

Great stuff. Very occasionally, I manage to 'see' an image this way and 'catch it.'

Love Dennis Thorpe as well, and Bert Hardy.

Would not try to imitate/plagiarise these images, but they do inspire and 'show the way' to see beauty in everyday situations. Or call it the beauty of reality.

In haste (from Holland).

If you have access  to Sky Arts have a look at Masters of Photography  tonight  at  8pm.  It's  a bit like Master Chef but more interesting .

I 'only' have Freeview, which I don't watch either. (On average, I watch maybe three hours per month.)

I do not try to please judges, as I never enter anything that will be properly judged; maybe I should, as I would probably learn a lot.
I do what I like, as far as photography is concerned, and shoot whatever catches my eye, including my kitchen window, and vapour trails!

Just watched it. Spot on with your analysis Alan, especially the comparison to masterchef.
I got distracted/bored a couple of times with the slow script etc but will give it another go next week.
I did agree with the "judges" stating they were underwhelmed with shots displayed.

Looked in tonight and wasn`t too bad I thought. Having been to berlin recently I was quite interested in seeing what they did. generally disappointing but it was a miserable night of empty streets. I felt the German guy who posed his own friends was allowed to much leaway although is in trouble for using other unofficial equipment. Bruce Gilden was a bit savage and very much seeing his style as the only style. Although I agreed with aspects of what he said re: getting closer his assertions that they needed themselves to be expressed in the image was  a bit arty for me. I`ll do a series link and see where this one goes but the right one went out tonight with her rather boring rubbish pictures that said nothing much at all.

I've  got a feeling it's  going to turn even more into a programme  much like those boring and repetitive  cooking  shows that seem to litter the TV these days.

A couple of things puzzle me. Why do they have to use equipment provided and do they all get the same choice?  There doesn't  seem to be any  disagreement  amongst the competitors who gets what.

Perhaps choosing a nighttime shoot for Berlin  was to obviate the possibility  of all the usual 'Berlin' shots that visitors take in the city. Having said that they could have chosen any place where the streets were relatively  empty at night.

The judges, well they're  judges. They have to be critical  and usually in an arty  farty way otherwise they wouldn't have much credence with any of the  viewers  from the arty  farty section.

 Gilden was rude and dismissive especially to the bloke who questioned his comments on his work. Saying 'you may not agree but that's where you are and that's  where I am", implying I'm  famous and you're not.

I expect it will drag on but hopefully improve and each week some poor wretch will be embarrassed.

The Italian  judge is the bloke who women DCM POTY a few years ago with the portrait of an anorexic girl in a glamorous pose.

Puzzled me too. Seemed an obvious street photography theme where they would needc to travel light and find action on the streets but some chose otherwise and I wondered whether that was all that was left or they made an active choice. Just seemed a bit biased towards the German guys who kinew Berlin well and used friends to pose in staged shots too.
