Photographer William Eggleston at LACMA by Anthony Friedkin
William Eggleston changed photographic history with his saturated color images of everyday life. In the 1960's, he pioneered the use of color photography and the snapshot for aesthetic and artistic expression. Eggleston was also one of the first photographers to capitalize on the deep, rich hues offered by the dye transfer process.

Ralph Nelson Interview by Anthony Friedkin
Ralph Nelson is considered one of the finest and most highly respected unit still photographers working today. For those of you who are not familiar with the term, the unit still photographer works on motion pictures. They're on the movie set every day during filming, creating for the studio publicity and advertising departments a key set of stills that will often be used for the entire advertising and publicity campaign of that movie. Their contribution to the whole motion picture process is major, and I can tell you from personal experience, one of the most difficult jobs a professional photographer can ever get themselves into. From the outside, the job appears glamorous and enviable. However, the challenge to produce quality work is enormous. Ralph is a seasoned veteran. Yet he is very humble about his extraordinary career spanning over thirty-three years. Recently, I interviewed Ralph about his many dedicated years in the motion picture industry and acquired some insights into his vast expertise.

Engaged Observers Exhibition - The J. Paul Getty Museum by Anthony Friedkin
Currently on view is an exceptional exhibition entitled "Engaged Observers," at the J. Paul Getty Museum. The exhibit is about photojournalism and the electrifying power photography has to tell us about ourselves in intimate, disturbing, and provocative ways.

Brilliantly conceived by Brett Abbott, Associate Curator of Photographs at the Getty, the exhibit focuses on nine diverse photographers and the particular social issues they felt strongly about. These photographers explored those issues in depth and with extraordinary vision. The exhibit spans the era from the 1960's through contemporary events, with some photos shot as recently as a few years ago.

Recently, I was invited to the George Eastman House International Museum of Photography and Film (GEH), located in Rochester, New York, to speak and to present my personal work.

In Memory of Jim Marshall by Anthony Friedkin
It is difficult to write about a friend who has recently passed on. That is especially true if the friend happened to have been an extraordinary photographer; one of the greatest ever. He is someone whose work helped to define an entire generation of musicians, as well as the tone and mood of America during the 1960's through the 21st century. Jim Marshall, the legendary rock 'n' roll photographer, was truly bigger than life.

Road to Freedom Exhibition Review by Anthony Friedkin
I find it unfathomable that human beings could treat each other so horrendously, based simply on the color of one's skin. To me it sounds like a bad science fiction novel. But as time has shown, truth is stranger than fiction when it comes to human history.

Grant Mudford is considered one of the most skillful and extraordinary photographers alive today. He is regarded as one of the finest architectural photographers to have ever worked in the field. Among his numerous and impressive credits, he was personally selected by Frank Gehry and the Los Angeles Philharmonic to photograph the construction and completion of Disney Hall and subsequent book.
