Blast from the Past: This is What the Photo Industry Was Like in 1978


Join us as we take a nostalgic trip into photography’s hey day. It’s 1978, and you’re a fly on the wall at Contact Press Images, working with world-class photojournalist David Burnett on a photo essay about the last traditional cattle drive.

That, in essence, is what this little short documentary titled “Moving Stills” is all about. It’s a fascinating look at how these old photo projects came about—from finding the story, to financing the project, to proofing the images, to shopping out the final product to magazines all over the world.

One of the coolest “blast from the past” posts we’ve ever shared. Check it out up top and then give some of Burnett’s more recent work a gander to see how this legend is still capturing amazing work today.
