Talk About Pictures : TV Show Gold from the 80’s
I brought this show to your attention over 5 years ago. You will not believe the gold that is in here.
In a simple Interview format, ala Charlie Rose, Life Photographer Leigh Wiener and photo enthusiast and perennial sidekick, George Fenneman, interviewed photographers and talked about their work for 130 episodes of an Emmy Award winning program.
While on a set, I met the son of Mr. Wiener who shared with us the incredible archive of his father, along with select episodes of this program.
These interviews need to be seen. Ansel Adams, Joe Rosenthal, Andreas Feniger, Henry Diltz, even Graham Nash, who discusses collecting, as well.
In this clip vid, are just tastes of some of the materials.
Sound still needs to be equalized, and the shows were originally produced on 2″ Quad Video tape. Yeah, exactly. Hard to find machines that can playback that format, if you even knew what they were.
I’m working with the estate to find the perfect outlet for these programs and sponsors to cover the cost of post production on these valuable materials.
The world of photography needs them.
Sorry, they won’t just be posted on youtube for free.
If you would like more info, or better yet, can help this dream be realized, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This is truly a rich, vein of gold for the photographic world.
