Keeping Best Friends Together Since 2009

Keeping Best Friends Together Since 2009
SN Jacobson

I was born in March of 1955, Manhattan, NY of Polish/ Jewish/ Survivors. My parents followed the borsch belt to Miami where my father became an itinerant photographer. At first working with a man with a pony, then going from one beachside hotel to another. Sometimes he would go to the local pier for a large shark or fish to drape across his hood so people could have their picture taken with it. It was “Stand here, hand on hip, head back, and say cheese”.  Coming back the next day with the proofs in one of those plastic one-eye-peepers and hoping to sell a couple of enlargements. Anything to make a buck (which is what he charged for a one eye peeper). It was a hell of a way to make a living, and it still amazes me that I have this love for photography that I do, unlike my father ever had.       Artist’s Statement       The people I most like to work with not only see their selves as the star in some elaborate movie but are hearing the sound track as well. My ideal is to take that self-image (however bizarre or unusual) and become cameraman, producer and director. Working with them to produce a plausible image that satisfies us both, trying not to destroy any of that fantasy.       Sometimes those images stand on their own, other times I take those images and work them into some form that typifies or amplifies the fantasy, Be it a poster or a postcard (art forms in and of them selves) thus completing the magic. I now live within drinking distance of the wine country and am working on a number of projects as well as doing commissions
