Join Steve Simon for an in-depth discussion in this video Critique of Barb Davidson wrestling essay, part of Photo Critique of the Week.
- I'm a big fan of assigning yourself a personal project.…You know, in my own experience,…creating a set of pictures…as opposed to just a single image…is a really powerful exercise…in sort of moving forward as a photographer.…Hi, I'm Steve Simon, the Passionate Photographer,…and welcome to another edition of Critique of the Week.…This week, we're going to look at the work of Barb Davidson.…Now, Barb's a friend of mine,…and she also happens to be a…Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer.…
And this little essay that she did…in Hyderabad, India is on the community of…kushti wrestlers,…and this was a self-assigned project for her.…She was in the neighborhood, so to speak,…traveling in India.…She researched and found it.…And this set of images was made over a two day period,…and I think what I'm underlining here for you guys is that,…obviously, the more time you spend on a project,…the deeper and stronger it will get.…
But for someone with the super talent like Barb Davidson,…even two days is enough to create…a really solid essay and set of pictures…
