I wrote this essay for a film theory course I took from Brian Henderson back in 2004 when I was a grad student at University of Buffalo. Ironically, when I was researching the topic I found that Brian Henderson, my prof, had written one of the most important essays on voice over narration. I guess […]

More golden oldies from Sarah’s vault. I wrote this essay as an undergrad (1999 I think;) it’s not bad, a little naive, but I make some good points and have a few great examples. Mark and Bourke-White certainly have much in common.
Bourke-White marks the evolution from the machine aesthetic to the more human approach. […]

Andrea Modica at Catherine Edelman Gallery
I just noticed that Andrea Modica is showing at Chicago’s Catherine Edelman Gallery; wish I could afford a Treadwell print - but “…8 x 10″ platinum/palladium contact prints made in an edition of 20 with 3 AP’s … range from $2000 to $6000 depending on how many have sold in […]

Raised By Wolves as a Non-Fictional Multi-Media Narrative
I was reminded of this essay when I recently posted about Antoine D’Agata’s social documentary work. I wrote this essay back in 2001; I was taking an English course on narrative from Rick Fehrenbacher. Being a fan of Jim Goldberg’s work I saw great a great opportunity’s to […]

exactitudes.nl
This is one of my favorite photographic websites of all time. Photographer Ari Versluis and stylist Ellie Uyttenbroek have made a thing of beauty. A fashion spread meets Bernd and Hilla Becher’s Typologies, but way better. Another wonderful use of the semiotic photographic grid; Susan Eder and Marion Faller’s work also comes to mind. There […]

Magnum Photos- Antoine D’Agata
I can think of no photographer today who better characterizes new social documentary than Antoine D’Agata. D’Agata was actually taking courses at ICP in 199o while Larry Clark and Nan Goldin were there. All three share a raw insider viewpoint, but I believe only D’Agata is able to transcend and break out […]

Dance Club

This is yet another older project (2003) that I wanted to repost on my new main page. Dance Club is an experiment in New Media documentary. The project is the result of a collaboration with Shawn Rider, who created the multimedia interface. The project is based on my research and writing, and also utilizes […]

Jorge Colombo
Jorge Colombo is just an all around cool artist - both a stylish illustrator and a neat photographer too boot. I think he has a great sense of color and layout/composition. It’s clear that his comic work has influenced his photographic work. Originally from Portugal, he currently lives in New York City where he’s […]

Urban Legends: An Electronic Art Exhibit - Sarah Wichlacz
I was just reminded of this series by a student of mine (Michael Burch) so I figured I’d make sure I linked to it through my new homepage. As a part of my 1999 BFA show, I collaborated with Shawn Rider to build an online version of […]

Inkjet Printing Lessons from Joel Meyerowitz - PopPhoto - May/June 2006
This is not so much of a lesson in digital printing, it’s more a testimonial really. But Meyerowitz has me sold on the HP Premium Plus Satin inkjet printing paper. He says it has six layers and has some sort of nanotechnology that causes the […]
