Camera Position 38 : It’s About Time

It’s about time. It’s about time to talk about time in photography and time as it relates to how photographs function. Using photographs by Garry Winogrand and Tokihiro Sato, we examine two different approaches to dealing with time in the photograph.

  1. Awesome!!! This is one of the best, most revealing episodes of late.

    excellent! I love being introduced to photographers I had not seen before – great topic, well covered, awesome contrast/comparison.

    Much appreciated! made me think about my own art as well 😀

  2. Glad you liked it. I was really blown away by Sato’s images. They “worked” on so many levels… photographically, cerebrally, as performance…. I’d never heard of him before seeing the show, either.


  3. Wonderful site Jeff! I wish I had known about you and your classes back when I was a student at COD in the mid-90s.

    On the topic of Tokihiro Sato’s work, do you know of a website that features the video where he talks about how these pen light images were made?

    I’ve been looking for it and can’t find anything. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Keep up the great work with Camera Position. Love the podcast!


  4. Tim;

    Unfortunately, I can’t find anything where he talks much about his technique. Most of what I know came from the walls at the Art Institute of Chicago, where I first encountered his work.

    Sorry I can’t be more helpful…

    Thanks for listening and for visiting!


  5. hi jeff,
    i’m trying to download the podcast (i’ve tried both here and at the itunes site), and keep getting a 500 server error. is something wrong with this stream? i’d really like to hear this episode on tokihiro sato, there’s so infuriatingly little information about him out there! thanks in advance…
