Pick up a copy of LensWork! January 4, 2006

A close friend of mine, who also happens to be one of my favorite photographers, is getting extraordinary honors this month.

A portfolio of Fritz Liedtke’s work is featured in the new issue of LensWork. And one of the images from his exhibit “Welcome to Wonderland,” a collection of images exploring the strange and unstable land of adolescence, is on the cover.

LensWork is one of the top fine art photography magazines. Its reproductions are museum-book quality, having won numerous prestigious awards. All this to say: the photographs look great.

Furthermore, their Extended CD, available from their website, contains a full 30 images, an audio interview with the editor, Bruce Jensen, and more.

You can find LensWork at most fine booksellers, such as Barnes and Noble, Powells, Elliot Bay, and more. Or you can order copies online, at www.lenswork.com. I hope you’ll pick up a copy and enjoy Fritz’s fantastic work.

  1. I don’t remember finding the DreamWorks cartoon “disastrous”. But yeah, those are both straight-to-the-small-screen affairs, and thus not big-screen. (There have been other adaptations of the Joseph story for TV, too, e.g. 1974’s The Story of Jacob and Joseph.)

    If it’s big-screen action you want, you might be interested in Youssef Chahine’s al-Mohager (1994), a.k.a. The Emigrant, which changes the names of the characters but still caused a huge controversy in its native Egypt because, according to Muslim custom, you are not allowed to depict the prophets. I can’t recall if it qualifies as “epic”, but I certainly saw it on the big screen.

  2. FWIW, there have been 2 “Joseph films” in the last 10ish years alone – although neither of them quite “a big screen epic”. The Bible collection did a made for TV one (which won an Emmy IIRC) starring Ben Kingsley, and there was the disastrous straight to video prequel to the Prince of Egypt, – Joseph King of Dreams

  3. I still say it’s only a matter of time before someone makes a big screen epic of the story of Joseph, his brothers, and his rise to power.

    Along that line, I’m waiting for the adaptation of The Red Tent. That could make an amazing movie. Or a terrible one, but these things can always go either way.

  4. Wonder what kind of double-bill this will make with Amazing Grace, which, despite being named after Newton’s hymn and starring Albert Finney as Newton, is actually reportedly more about William Wilberforce (Ioan Gruffudd). And who knows how either of these films will compare to Steven Spielberg’s Amistad (1997), which featured Stellan Skarsgård as Lewis Tappan!

  5. and not to forget his technicolor coat, which, btw, is dreamy.

    one thing i would say about the newton project is, i hope they get it right. i mean, he didn’t write “amazing grace” as an abolitionist, or even before he was repenting of his slave-trading days. i could see some comforting big, romantic ending where he leads a large group of black men and women to freedom and has the inspiration to pen america’s most beloved hymn.

    on the flip-side, i hope the Blind Boys of Alabama get on the soundtrack with their “House of the Rising Son” version of the song.
