    Ringling PDI Faculty, Joseph Mougel, Featured in "The Contact Sheet"

    December 11, 2009 – Photography and Digital Imaging (PDI) Visiting Artist, Joseph Mougel, is featured as one of the emerging artists included in Steve Crist's recent publication, The Contact Sheet.

    The Contact Sheet offers an insightful look into some of the most iconic photographs of our times, unveiling rarely-seen contact sheets from the original photo sessions. This compilation showcases some of the most seminal photographers of our time, revealing the depth and breadth of their photographic process.

    Photographers such as William Claxton, Chuck Close, Arnold Newman, Robert Doisneau, Nan Golding, Dorothea Lange, Julius Shulman, Richard Misrach, Jeanloup Sieff, Martin Parr, Jerry Uelsmann, William Wegman, and many more are featured here in this compelling compilation.

    For every iconic photograph, many images taken before and after this are left unseen to anyone but the photographer. Examining the contact sheets from these original photographic sessions allows insight into the subject matter, the photographic process, and often reveals a deeper story that has never been told.

    Over forty photographs by world famous photographers, and a few emerging artists, are showcased in detail in The Contact Sheet, complete with short biographies and background details of the sessions themselves.
