Over the past several years I have had the pleasure of being introduced time and time again to the excellent photographic artwork of Jackson Frishman, as he’s been recommended to me by so many excellent former guests of my podcast, including Sarah Marino & Ron Coscorossa. There are several interesting themes that I’ve been able to piece together over the years regarding Jackson and his work that have always intrigued me and so I strongly believe he is a great subject for this column. For starters, Jackson’s photography very much mirrors his personality – it is understated, quiet, unique, and lastly, tasteful in a time where brazen and flashy landscape photography is in vogue. Jackson’s subdued approach to photography is steady as he’s been on this path for many, many years.
