Wow! another find that was there all the time. Just across the pond.

The Tate Museum in London one of the finest collections on earth. In addition, the caliber of exhibits that originate from them are world class by any criteria.

While perusing their site ( yes I do just look around the web for things that may interest us) , I came across a collection of seminars/lectures on photography. And they are all video presentations available to anyone for free!
All you need is Real Player installed on your computer. And they point you in that direction for a download.

Holy Moly! (sp?)

There are talks on Global Photography from different regions, overall examniations on photographys influence and influences, and presentations on partuclar photographers and their works.

If you are lucky enough to live there, usually you can see a companion exhibit to the talks.

But for the rest of us , this will do just fine.

If you are a student, a lover of photography, or just someone that wants to enrich their life, you get an incredible experience on the web.

Here is a sample write up for a Robert Frank symposium:

‘Robert Frank, Swiss, unobtrusive, nice, with that little camera that he raises and snaps with one hand he sucked a sad poem right out of America onto film, taking rank among the tragic poets of the world.’
- Jack Kerouac

Was The Americans the most influential book of photographs published in the last fifty years? Granted a Guggenheim fellowship, Robert Frank set out to document everyday America. The resulting pictures broke all conventions of photography and showed the artist’s clear ambivalence towards his adopted country. Seen by many as an attack on the American way of life, the book nonetheless spawned droves of young photographers to drive second hand cars across the United States, exposing rolls of film at gas stations and roadside bars.

This event brings together Robert Delpire, original publisher of The Americans; Martin Gasser, curator at the Swiss Foundation for Photography; David Brittain, former editor of Creative Camera; Liz Jobey associate editor of Granta magazine; and artists Susan Meiselas and Stephen Shore, to discuss the enduring impact of Frank’s magnum opus.
