Both shows on channel 8. Both look very interesting.

Sinsabaugh favored a camera that used 12"x20" film. Negatives the size of door mat. Enormous camera. Relatively small hands.

The FSA archives are fascinating, and are available for viewing online. memory.loc.gov/ammem/fsaquery.html

Why not kick things off with a subject search for 'manure'? That search returns 45 images. Search term 'internet'? Zero.

"Sinsabaugh favored a camera that used 12"x20" film."

Those 1"x20" panoramas were most compelling in my opinion. I found the commentary in the Sinsabaugh doc to be painful, however. Lots of speculation, like the bullshit you get in an art class.

I didn't know there was a searchable FSA archive! That's really cool.
