TJ’s Daily Photo #38- Stephen Takacs

TJ Hanson has been working on a daily photography blog project for over a month now. Last week, he came by my studio at 400 West Rich Street to hang out and shoot some pictures of me at work. The beautifully lit images were captured on Fuji instant film using a Bronica with an old Polaroid back.

Nice work TJ!

Meet Stephen Tackacs. This guy is one of the true artist/photographer/educators in Columbus, Ohio. He is the creator of the Brownie in Motion Camera Obscura- it is a camera the size of a room. Using analog techniques, he has traveled to different parts the country capturing people with rare and disappearing occupations using this room-size capture device. The low-fi style of the photos from the Brownie imbues a timelessness to the subject and their chosen craft or occupation. The series shows us that technology has not quite stripped all of us of our love of analog techniques, and more traditional form of work. At least not yet.
