David Brown and I had lunch yesterday in a soul food cafe here in Ft Worth and then decided to see this show.


Frank Gohlke is a photographer and professor. Pretty much a large format guy. Originally from Wichita Falls, TX. This show had a lot of images in B/W from his home town. I thought it most interesting when he had photographed the aftermath of a Category 5 Tornado and then came back a year later and made the same photo again from the same tripod holes as it were. I really liked how he was able to make landscape photographs that were different from what Ansel and Weston made. These were more like urban landscapes. I liked how he dealt with the elements that the barren landscapes presented him. It might not be everyones cup of tea but they were to me very nice.
