Bec Jacobs, “A Day in the Life of a Pandemic” Photographer Bec Jacobs aimed to capture the longing for pre-quarantine life in her work, “A Day in the Life of a Pandemic.” Her subject’s expression and outfit speaks to what life has been like for so many affected by the coronavirus pandemic.“It just kind of feels like she’s getting ready for the day and then realizing ‘Oh, there’s actually no place to go,’” Jacobs said. “And wanting to have that past life back, before the pandemic.”

An open copy of “Sleeping by the Mississippi” by Alec Soth sits atop other photobooks.
By Liam DeBonis @LiamDeBonis There’s nothing quite as remarkable as holding a photo book in your hands; the feel of the gloss on the pages, the rich tones in each image and the knowledge that each photo was chosen carefully and arranged intentionally by the artist for the limited number of pages available to them. In the digital age of photography, it seems we’ve become accustomed to online portfolios and Instagram profiles. While onscreen displays have their place in the photographic landscape, nothing on a computer can truly compare to holding an artist’s finished work in your hands. Luckily for students at the University of New Mexico, the Fine Arts and Design Library has a large collection of these masterpieces available to be checked out at this very moment. As a photographer who has drawn an enormous amount of inspiration from photo books, I’ve compiled a list of some of the most awe-inspiring books the library has to offer.
1. “Intimate Distance” by Todd Hido Todd Hido is best known for his ethereal, moody photography of houses at night. Hido’s keen eye for light amidst a dark landscape allows him to create eerie images that induce an odd feeling of nostalgia. His first book containing such images, published in 2001 and titled “House Hunting,” is printed in a massive format to further immerse the viewer. The photos invite unanswerable and intriguing questions as to the lives led inside the houses pictured. Hido doesn’t provide details of the inhabitants, leaving these questions up to the viewer’s own imagination. Hido’s subject matter has since evolved, but has kept its signature feel of aesthetic unease. “Intimate Distance” is a collection of not only Hido’s landscapes, but also his experimentation with photographing interiors and the occasional portrait. 2. “William Eggleston: Portraits” by Phillip Prodger In “Portraits,” Phillip Prodger showcases photographer William Eggleston's unmatchable eye for capturing his subjects’ expressions. Beyond their faces, Eggleston expertly captures body language in both his candid-style work and his more composed photographs. His
portraits are just revealing enough to get a glimpse of the subject’s inner thoughts without revealing too much about their context. Just as Hido creates mystery in his suburban landscapes, Eggleston too leaves much of the story up to the viewer. Unlike Hido, however, many of Eggleston’s photos are saturated, vibrant and warm. Eggleston seems to eagerly invite his audience into his subjects’ lives. Truly, “Portraits” is an unrivaled demonstration of how a photographer can capture so much of a person in a single portrait. 3. “Sleeping by the Mississippi” by Alec Soth A perfect middle ground between Hido and Eggleston, Alec Soth is the master of environmental portraits. In “Sleeping by the Mississippi,” Soth documents the people and places he encountered during a series of trips along America’s second longest river. Soth balances his book with a mix of portraits, landscapes and photographs of miscellaneous interiors. One of his most iconic photographs, “Peter’s houseboat,” is the first to appear in the book. It’s arguably one of the most amazingly framed landscapes in the photographic medium today. The house, full of various trinkets and hangings that give it a wealth of character, stands iso-
lated in a sea of white snow, tethered somewhere offscreen by a clothesline full of brightly colored laundry. The result is something that simply becomes lost when attempting to translate it into words. “Sleeping by the Mississippi” is a body of work that must be seen and held to experience fully. 4. “Jeff Wall” by Jeff Wall While much more text-heavy than the previous books, Jeff Wall’s self-titled collection is a masterclass in staged and cinematic photography. The book features excerpts from interviews with Wall alongside some of his most notable photographs. Epic, painterly images such as “The Vampires’ Picnic” and “Dead Troops Talk,” expertly produced and reminiscent of Gregory Crewdson’s discriminating selections within the frame, are printed in a scale that takes them to the borders of the pages. Renaissancestyle compositions captivate the eye and demand thorough examination and deconstruction, and the surreal atmosphere of Wall’s work is bewitching. 5. “A Storybook Life” by Philip-Lorca diCorcia Another masterful portraitist, Philip-Lorca diCorcia presents his
subjects in a range of curious scenarios in “A Storybook Life.” Unlike Soth, whose subjects are usually staring directly into the camera, diCorcia’s subjects are instead immersed in their environment - cutting vegetables, gazing out the window or engaged in other ordinary activities. In each photograph, the backgrounds provide a plethora of clues to the inner lives of the people pictured within. Seemingly everyday moments are transformed into incredibly moving works of art imbued with sentimentality. While Soth employs a more bleak color palette to convey a sense of cheerlessness, diCorcia’s uses vibrant colors and expressive subjects to create photographs that read as a romantic celebration of the everyday. No matter which book you pick up, a treasure trove of inspiration and raw artistic talent can be found on every page, and this list is simply the beginning. Rows upon rows of books rich in exceptional photography await, available to all students and staff for free. Liam DeBonis is the photo editor at the Daily Lobo.

Picture Perfect Photo Lab proves film photography is alive and well
NEW MEXICO DAILY LOBO
MONDAY, APRIL 5, 2021 / PAGE 3
By Shelby Kleinhans @BirdsNotReal99 Picture Perfect Photo Lab is a second home for photographers who’re looking look to return to the age old practice of developing film. Originally founded in 1985 as a one-hour photo store, the business now does it all: developing C-41 color negative and B&W film weekly, in addition to scanning and digitally restoring old photos/slides to continually add to a 22-year-old archive. “We've really seen a huge surge in film photography from young people who are in college or high school who are looking for a different experience from their phone or digital photography,” owner Matt Alexander said, who originally started working at the shop in 1996. Film photography has had a resurgence in interest for well over a decade. A 2020 Wired article recounted how, after the film brand Kodak filed for chapter 11 bankruptcy and discontinued its most popular 35mm film Ektachrome in 2012, “a nascent audience of shutterbugs drove the company to revive Ektachrome five years later; Kodak's film business saw yearover-year growth of 21% in 2018.” There’s several theories as to why film photography is gaining popularity again, even with the vast array of digital and high end cinema cameras available on the market. According to the documentary “Why We Still Love Film: Analog Photography in the Digital Age” from NBC Left Field, the tactile nature of film photography contributes heavily to its appeal. Alexander also said shooting on film forces photographers to be more intentional with their shots, since they only have 24 or 36 exposures per roll. “I think film photography kind of lends itself an artistic side that people appreciate — people like the graininess of the film, the grittiness, the rawness of the moment,” Alexander said. According to Wired, a fascinating intersection of film and digital photography can be found on the photo sharing social media app Ins-

tagram. Developers realized people liked the “look” of film photography and created filters that made digital photos look like they were taken on film. But as the Wired article points out, such filters “don't satisfy us, and that points to a deeper reason for analog's persistence.” Alexander said younger generations now use the app to upload their photos that were actually taken on film cameras as “a badge of honor.” The hashtag “stay broke shoot film” currently has 4.4 million posts and the hashtag
“film is not dead” has a whopping 19.1 million posts, indicating the prevalence of film photography on the app. Another reason Alexander cited for the appreciation of film photography is that it “makes you slow down and think and value the moment a little bit more and it gets you off of your digital device for a moment.” “Why We Still Love Film” also speaks to how younger generations that grew up with a saturation of digital media are looking for an es-

cape from instant gratification. The tactile nature of putting a roll of film in a camera and taking it into a shop like Picture Perfect is equally as appealing to people who grew up with “point and shoot” cameras and smartphones. Another unique aspect of Picture Perfect is how much of their work lies in restoring and digitally scanning old photographs, negatives and slides. Alexander said restoring old photos is the essence of photography because “it captures that little sliver of our lives and it preserves it
for years to come.” Much like how vinyl made a comeback and brought back record stores, this renewed interest in film photography and the desire to preserve slices of life will continue to help places like Picture Perfect keep film alive.

ABQ Artwalk flourishes as pandemic slows
By John Scott
@JScott050901 On April 2, dozens of artists, creators and crafters lined the sidewalks of Central Avenue for the Albuquerque Artwalk, an independently-run showcase event designed to help artists to show off and sell their work to the public. According to the ABQ Artwalk’s website, the walk “aims to support local artists, micro-businesses and local brick and mortar establishments by organizing cultural enrichment events, art placemaking and an online platform for emerging artists.” The ABQ Artwalk typically takes place every first Friday of the month, but the event was post-
poned due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. According to the ABQ Artwalk Instagram, the event was cancelled in April and May 2020 and had a one-time curbsideonly Artwalk in June. July 2020 was the first month that the Artwalk resumed regular in-person activities. Gilbert White, a local artist who’s previously had booths at the artwalk, said the artwalk has changed, not only since he began participating, but since the start of the pandemic. “The first time I came, honestly, it was pretty dead. Definitely, with each month, I notice that it gets bigger and bigger,” White said. “I think now that it’s warming up … and the pandemic is slowing down, I think more people are coming out.” The artwalk not only included a variety of local artists but also different sponsored events located
around Central, including live painting at 505 Central Food Hall and a T-shirt lab that consisted of a retail pop-up and featured artwork from students at the Warehouse 508 Youth Art & Entertainment Center. Still, the main focus of the event is to highlight local artists and creators. “It’s a really good opportunity for small businesses just to network, meet customers and make some extra income,” White said. “I’m so grateful for it because I’ve met so many people — vendors and artists — and they’re all just really good human beings. Everyone helps each other out.” John Scott is a freelance reporter at the Daily Lobo. He can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org or on Twitter @JScott050901

UNM photo department ranks eighth best grad program in country
NEW MEXICO DAILY LOBO
By Megan Gleason @fabflutist2716 The photography department at the University of New Mexico remains one of the top photography MFA programs in the country, and continues to stay on the cutting edge of interdisciplinary arts. UNM’s photo department is currently ranked No. 8 in the U.S. News & World Report’s list of the best graduate schools to study photography. As one of the oldest photo programs in the country, associate photography professor Patrick Manning said UNM has always made photography a priority in the fine arts department. “With our community, it’s always just been part of art,” Manning said. With new photographic technology being developed everyday, the curriculum for the photography department is constantly evolving. However, Susanne Anderson-Riedel, an art department chair at UNM, said older methods are just as important as newer ones in the department’s focus. “The tools are changing … but the tool is a tool,” Anderson-Riedel said. “The concept, the ideas and the desired aesthetic is what drives the selection of the tools.” Manning reiterated this, and said older methods of photography are actually coming back in fashion.

“We’re always listening to the students and looking at the world and trying to match that as much as we can,” Manning said. Kufre McIver, a photography minor at UNM, said his current black and white photography class has stood out as one of his favorites in the department. “I think film photos just look super good; they look better than digital in my opinion so learning more about the whole process and different ways to get creative with it, and also developing it yourself with a bunch of different methods, has been really cool,” McIver said. The faculty at the photo de-
partment represent a diversity of topics, some with national attention, and an increasingly renewed focus on interdisciplinary works, according to Anderson-Riedel. She attributed these efforts to why UNM’s program is nationally recognized as one of the best. “They’re really highly recognized professors, and … they are so deeply involved with their students,” Anderson-Riedel said. “They’re really hands-on professors who engage with their students and help them develop.” McIver noted that his professors and colleagues stood out in the photography department. “All the people in the depart-

ment I’ve had are super cool, not just people I’ve met in my classes, but also all the professors themselves … It’s just a very nice space to be in,” McIver said. Being a professor in the UNM photo department is a balancing act between professional work and teaching. Manning said juggling networking, gallery outreach, department service and more along with education has always been difficult for him. “Even before the pandemic, it was never easy. It’s sort of like having two and a half full time jobs,” Manning said. “One is teaching, which I find to be very important and I think all of my colleagues put an incredible amount of effort in doing it as well as we can, and then another job is making your own work.” One trait that made the photo department stand out for McIver was its accessibility. The program allows all students to participate in the methods classes without being burdened under financial strain for equipment. “None of the assignments I encountered required the use of a specific camera mode,” McIver said. Manning said the facilities that the photo department has are exceptional because of support from the fine arts department and university overall, but that financial concerns are still present. “It’s a challenge budget-wise because of the costs involved, with trying to provide access to
enough computers that are good enough to run the (editing) programs,” Manning said. Overall, McIver said the department pedagogy succeeds in its attempt to remain inclusive and accessible. “They seem to make it really inclusive to all different styles as well as ability,” McIver said. Anderson-Riedel said the physical structure of the photography department encourages community work, and students can either work independently or collaboratively in an engaging and comfortable workspace. “There are very few other areas in our department who have that kind of setup … that really shapes a community among the photo students and other art students who come and work there,” Anderson-Riedel said. A limited amount of advanced photography classes have been offered in person during the pandemic following safety standards, and Anderson-Riedel said the department is waiting on University guidelines to judge how things will be in the fall. “Art needs community. Art needs dialogue; a dialogue that goes beyond Zoom meetings,” Anderson-Riedel said. Megan Gleason is the culture editor at the Daily Lobo.

Photojournalist Junfu Han reflects on his path to success and time at UNM By Jesus Mata
@JesusMataJr99 Junfu Han, a Detroit Free Press staff photographer and University of New Mexico graduate, credits his humble beginnings at the Daily Lobo and the support of his mentors with his success in the increasingly exclusive field of photojournalism. Han came to the U.S. in August 2008 as an international student after becoming dissatisfied with his studies in computer science in China. Once he began at UNM, Han delved into the photography program, not knowing that this choice would shape the rest of his life. When Han started his education at UNM, he began applying for a multitude of jobs on campus in order to fulfill the conditions of his international visa. This eventually led to his employment as photo editor, multimedia editor and web editor at the Daily Lobo in 2012. "The time you spend with each
other, the encouragement you give each other, the inspiration you give each other — those are the things I cherish the most,” Han said. Currently, Han works as a fulltime professional photographer. While enjoyable, Han said the work can be demanding. "(The) challenge is always trying to beat out your competition and send the pictures out as fast as you can, with (the) caption, using any technology you can find," Han said. Han said a lot of photojournalists today are freelancers because companies rarely offer staff positions anymore. "The new business of being a photojournalist is being a freelancer," Han said. Roberto E. Rosales, a professional photographer and professor at UNM, helped lead Han through his college years and educated him on how to succeed in the world of photography. "He's been one of my very important mentors throughout the
college years. He's always given me advice,” Han said. “We'd go on trips just to shadow him on the job, learn about the profession. He was a big influence.” Rosales said, in his opinion, Han is so successful because of his ability to adapt no matter the situation. "This is one photographer I don't worry about, because he's always going to land on his feet," Rosales said. Rosales said that during his time with Han as mentor and mentee, Han had "raw talent," so his focus was just to elevate the skills that were already there. "You're successful as a professional photojournalist because you did (it) your way and you gave yourself a chance,” Rosales said, imagining he was talking to Han. “Even when times looked miserable, hard, everything was against you, he stuck to his guns.” Chris Quintana, a national education reporter for USA Today, said Han and himself weren’t just coworkers at the Daily Lobo, but also

roommates and friends. Quintana said Han would always push himself to get a great photo and become better at his passion. "I remember one time, he and I drove out to Oklahoma City ... he actually climbed up on one of those 20-foot diving boards to take pictures of his then girlfriend, now wife, diving," Quintana said. Quintana said Han had a special drive when working at the Daily Lobo, and stood out among his peers. "It could be challenging working for him because you knew that your photos really had to be at the top of
their game otherwise he wouldn't be happy with them, but that was good because he pushed you hard and he was also a good teacher," Quintana said. Han said he had a lot of people help him along the way, but highlighted how Jim Fisher, former director of student publications, helped him during his time at the Daily Lobo. His internships also helped him cover a wide array of events, from NCAA tournament games to election coverage. Han also talked specifically about the unique nature of being a photographer last year, capturing Black Lives Matter protests and “stop the steal” rallies in Detroit during the past presidential election. “Last year was pretty interesting, covering protests throughout all summer, getting to be on the front lines of this really historical time,” Han said. “Covering everything last year was very significant.” Han offered some advice for aspiring photojournalists from his vantage point as a successful photographer who broke into a competitive field. "Keep posting your work and keep reaching out to people if you want to get some advice or anything,” Han said. “Don't be afraid." Jesus Mata is a freelance reporter at the Daily Lobo.

UNM archives boast vast collection of photography
NEW MEXICO DAILY LOBO
By Megan Gleason @fabflutist2716
Photography students at the University of New Mexico have access to a wide array of resources, including collections from the Fine Arts & Design Library (FADL), the UNM Art Museum (UNMAM) and the Center for Southwest Research (CSWR). The FADL covers a wide range of academic topics in photography research, all of which can be browsed online or in-person during limited hours. Students
can also schedule Zoom sessions for help with research or resources, according to librarian Stephanie Beene. The photography section covers “information on cameras and the history of cameras, as well as photographic processing and different darkroom techniques; newer techniques and media and the shift to digital, outdoor photography; artistic photography over the years, as well as more photojournalistic methods; information about individual photographers; applied photography, including artistic, commercial, medical photogra-

phy, cinematography and motion picture photography,” according to Beene. “For years, UNM was ranked nationally as in the top five photography programs and so we have a really strong library collection to support it,” Beene wrote in an email to the Daily Lobo. “We are still in the top ten.” UNMAM has around 10,000 photographs from over 1,000 different photographers, as well as early cased objects, according to its website. Collections associate Heather Kline said this is approximately a third of UNMAM’s collection overall and includes almost every photographic process. “The goal was to be somewhat encyclopedic in what it included in terms of process and technique of the history of photography,” Kline said. While UNMAM remains closed to the general public, its collection is still available for students to view via appointment. “What’s really cool for us is to be able to pull those prints out and actually be able to show them to students and have them experience that firsthand — that viewing experience of being able to see these objects that are really rare,” Kline said. The UNMAM photography collection originated with Van Deren Coke, the founding director of UNMAM. Coke was a photo historian who largely collected in the 1960s,
MONDAY, APRIL 5, 2021 / PAGE 7
around the time of UNMAM’s inception. During this period, collecting of items from famous artists was easier than it is now. “Back in the ‘60s, photography wasn’t really known as a fine art … (Photography) wasn’t really admired in the same way as something that would be necessarily at the level of a museum,” Kline said. “It was sort of a visionary thing … (Coke) could already see that they had value and were sort of on the same level as these other art forms, that they would be worthwhile to be in a museum collection.” Pictorial collections are also available through the CSWR, located in Zimmerman library, via appointment. Cindy Abel Morris, a pictorial archivist, said the facility is accessible as a resource for students. The CSWR currently has between 250,000 and 500,000 items overall, including print and negatives, according to Abel Morris. The facility has over 500 individual collections, and averages about 10 new collections a year. These items are mostly photographs, but there are also prints and other illustrative items included. “Our general collecting policy is one where we want to highlight the southwest and regional collections,” Abel Morris said. The FADL has a special collections area set aside, which includes rare editions that can only be browsed online. UNMAM has also published some of its col-
lections digitally, and Abel Morris said the CSWR has an online presence through Rocky Mountain Archives and New Mexico Digital Collections. Abel Morris said there are two primary reasons she decides to publish online: if the material is of local or popular interest, or if there is a unique quality that will draw public interest in the collections. UNMAM and the CSWR primarily receive items from donations, but also have some acquisition funds set aside for more collections, according to Kline and Abel Morris. “We get a lot of donations now that people know that we are one of the preeminent collections of photography in the country,” Kline said. “That sort of draws them to us as a place to leave their collections.” Hands-on facilities like these are eager to have students back on campus to direct more in-person visitors. While Abel Morris said attendance at the CSWR has boosted slightly, Kline said UNMAM is seeing less students compared to pre-pandemic times. “The experience of being in a museum, you can’t really replicate it with a digital experience,” Kline said.
