Jim and Millie Casper: Citizens of the Global Photographic World

When the plans were being made to travel over to Paris-Photo, all of the ancillary events had to be put into the shed.
Whether it was a curatorial tour of a major exhibit, private viewing of a small gallery, and of course..the parties.
The one we were told not to miss was hosted by Jim and Millie Casper. Photographic Bon Vivants to be sure

Originally from the San Francisco Bay Area, (they actually still have a business address there), they took advantage one of our favorite rules: Life is too Short. And they acted upon it.
So they moved to Paris 3 1/2 years ago. In one of the coolest areas of the city. With stunning views of the Eiffel Tower.
But that’s not the important part here.
With a scholarly intelligence, and a discriminating eye, Jim Casper has become world renown as a critic, and a respected portfolio reviewer for the global photographic community. The couple travels the world, going from event to event, seking out the finest in photography.

Millie Casper completes the team with her entrepreneurial skills, and a sense of connecting the right people who inhabit the photographic community, with an ease of grace and charm, that brings a diverse group together.

With a website called LensCulture, they have reviews of photographers books and events, plus they are now selling original prints from emerging photographers, that you can own for very reasonable prices.
One that has tempted us is by Myoung Ho Lee, Tree #5

And when you check out their site, you’ll find some brilliant writing on the art we love, and yes, some crossover from what we cover here at photoinduced.
But they have another point of view that we truly dig.
With a select choice of words, Jim can weave an insightful breakdown of the essence of a book, exhibit or event, based on his years of photographic and design experience. And you want to read that.

Thanks to our buddy who recco’d the party. These 2 people made our trip to Paris a lot richer.

We’re here to turn you on to things and perhaps sift through what’s out there to bring you best of what’s available in photography. Like LensCulture.com.
Like we say, let us be the first stop in your photographic life. We’ll help get you where you want to be.
