About Us

Random Observations on Art, Photography, and the Creative Process. These talks focus on the creative process in fine art photography. LensWork editor Brooks Jensen side-steps techno-talk and artspeak to offer a stimulating mix of ideas, experience, and observations from his 40 years as a fine art photographer, writer, and publisher. Topics include a wide range of subjects from finding subject matter to presenting your work and building an audience.

Included in this series are the LensWork Podcasts -- typically 10-15 minutes exploring a topic a bit more deeply -- and our almost daily Here's a thought . . . series. Here's a thought . . . is the audio portion from videos with the same title and are snippets, fragments, morsels, and tidbits from Brooks' fertile (and sometimes swiss-cheesy) brain. Usually just a minute or so. Pretty much daily. Always about photography and the art life.

Brooks Jensen is the publisher of LensWork, one of the world's most respected and award-winning photography publications, known for its museum-book quality printing and luxurious design. LensWork has subscribers in over 73 countries. His latest books are "Seeing in SIXES (2016), The Best of the LensWork Interviews (2016), Photography, Art, and Media (2016), Seeing in SIXES (2017), Seeing in SIXES (2018), and Seeing in SIXES (2019).

Here's a thought ... There are 1600 temples in Kyoto. I had 14 days of photography. As much as I might have wanted to catalog them all, something clearly had to give.

HT0280 - Flexibility

LW1175 - Fundamental Decisions

Before I left for Asia this year, I went back and did a deep review of my images from 2009 - in particular, those images that had a technological failure. From this review, I developed a strategy that I'm delighted to report worked perfectly during this year's trip. You might be interested in . . . Announcing the 2020 LensWork Community Book Project!

LW1174 - Precision

Strange as it may sound, I do miss the precision demanded of me by the processes in the wet darkroom. Perhaps it's time to recognize that precision is still required, but in a different area of our art life. You might be interested in . . .
