Andre D. Wagner, photographer

Andre D. Wagner, Photographer from abstractElements on Vimeo.

This is a very nicely done video on Brooklyn, NY based street photographer Andre D. Wagner.

This is the kind of guy I hope goes very far: he’s got all the right ideas and his work reflects both a great handle on process and a lot of trial, error, and learning. To do all of this with a wet process shows both great dedication to craft and, as he says in the film, a love of slowing things down.

I’m not a street photographer but if I ever got into it, Andre is the kind of street photographer I’d like to be.

These are spectacular images, most of them staged, of a variety of American workers on the job (posed) during the big gear up for World War II. The image quality is incredible; Kodachrome was amazing film for getting color right and larger format Kodachrome made for some spectacular images.
