Bill Frakas

It’s been a long time since I’ve touched this blog due to some general craziness in my life – good, bad and everything in between.

Here are two short films by Bill Frakas, a renowned Sports Illustrated photographer who is getting his hands dirty in multimedia.

I prefer “Ada” to “Istanbul”. Ada slides me into into an individual’s life story. I walk away having learned something and having experienced something about a person I’m unlikely to meet. It’s not overwhelming but I like the vibe of the story.

I find Istanbul less satisfying. The images are undoubtedly excellent. But I don’t find a string of still photographs – even great photographs – intriguing enough to hold me for 5 minutes on the web. I’m not proud of it, but there you have it. I have a short attention span.
