I blame living in New York City for my new found interest in looking at any and all street photography.

Also I spent the blizzard, re-designing and adding new work to my website.. Check out the improved JacqueDonaldson.com. 

[Maybe I am preparing because I finally found a working Color Processor and will be C-Printing again in the very near (& dear) future.]

what will become of this

Art, Photography

Whenever anyone asks me about Los Angeles, one of the first things I tell them is that there’s a reason the film industry took hold there: the light. The pure, golden, electric sunshine that gives the city its color, its insanity, its charm and its mystery. Nobody can go to Los Angeles without being seduced by the light. That golden light that shines all year long was my guide and constant source of inspiration. The electric sunshine was the captain of the trip. Bryan Formhals Excerpt from artist statement for Genesee Ave. Series.

If my time in New York was running out, I wanted to make the most of it. Along the way I also thought about Gus Powell and his ‘Lunch Pictures,’ and Helen Levitt, and William Klein and Lee Friedlander and all the other great street photographers who worked in New York. This would be my homage to them, and in many ways, also the closing chapter in my investigation into street photography. ……[The Converse I wore on those long walks now had holes in them, so I tossed them in garbage. I’d worn out my street shoes.] – Bryan Formhals, Excerpt from artist statement for Street Shoes New York series.
