But the factor that distinguishes the work of master photographers is their ability to see and describe scenes visually. This book follows contemporary educational methods used to teach fine arts such as drawing and painting, concentrating on teaching the perception of critical visual elements and understanding how they will be rendered photographically.

Aaron Siskind: Two Dimensional Photographer (2:11) -- Siskind in Peru (3:08) -- Challenging the Premises of Social Documentation (2:47) -- Contiguity in Pictures (2:18) -- Primary Pictures are a Reflection (3:00) -- Only the Wall Exists (1:54) -- Credits: Aaron Siskind (0:46)Aaron Siskind is most remembered for his arresting photographs of two-dimensional surfaces. Though he began his career documenting social inequality in the 1930s, he became fascinated by pure form and the abstract imagery of found objects. "For the first time in my life, subject matter, as such, had ceased to be of primary importance," Siskind wrote in 1945. "Instead, I found myself involved in the relationships of objects." This film surveys Siskind's work over half a century, from his early, literal portrayals of urban tenements to his eventual foray into the world of abstract expressionism. The photographer is filmed on location in Cape Cod and Lima, Peru.10 & up.System requirements: FOD playback platform.Mode of access: Internet.Title from distributor's description.
