In this new regular 'Case Studies' segment of Hit The Streets, I invite listeners on the show to discuss a specific topic that they are concerned about and can benefit the photography community at large. Today my guest is Dennis Linden, who recently survived a massive heart attack. The event prompted him to start organizing his photographs in order to leave a legacy for his children and generations to come. Alhough not the most joyful topic, this is an important one and we discuss different ways to prevent our precious photographs to be forever lost or ignored.
Expat Canuck, living in Oregon since 1996. Photography is my hobby since childhood. Taught by my father, we had film school in Junior High School, my day job is a physician.
Shot on virtually everything from 8x10, 4x5, 35mm, 120, 126, 110 even 8mm Minox. Digitally shot on platforms from every major and most minor companies. For now, I've recently converted to the Canon M6 and 22mm lens, which gives me a bit more image quality compared to a m43 with very little size and weight compromise, and iPhone8.
About 10 years ago my hobby was re-kindled because I was trying to learn fine art printing for my landscapes. A few medical setbacks later I realized that landscapes didn't mean all that much to me without people. That's when I took your weekend course in Vancouver and have not looked back. I now strive to include a human element wherever possible. Most of my "art/hobby" photos are hand printed, framed and hang on the walls of my home, my office, and several have been sold - and hang on other people's walls…
I have a family history of photos (some prints, slides, negatives) which is currently spanning from the 1930's to now, and some art dating back to the later 1800's. I am in the process of digitizing it all.
