Guess who has been rollin’ around in my head lately…?
I wish I was in San Francisco area still, to see this exhibition…but…then I never would have heard Bill Johnson’s lectures on the famed Polaroid project*.
Hey SFAI art kids — you only get to read Frank’s quotes on the wall, we got to hear them, first hand, from someone who knows him. Spine shivers. When people ask me why I picked VSW for grad school — that will be high up on the list of the many reasons.
* Robert Frank, Robert Heineken, Dave Heath and John Wood. Project observed by Bill Johnson & Susie Cohen in 1980-83 (ish–will have to check my notebook). Recounted by Bill J. in Contemporary Photography Seminar, Visual Studies Workshop, Spring 2009.
