Selection from Pointers artist’s book by Daniel D. Teoli Jr.

NOTE 1….When the theme of this blog was changed to a zine format the spacing and layout of the photos changed from the original design. I don’t have the time to go back and fix thousands of photos in hundreds of posts…but I’m sure you will still get the message.

NOTE 2….If a photo looks fuzzy, try to click on it to see if there is a hi-res version. Sometimes my photos are reproduced poorly here.  

NOTE 3….Due to the size of this bio, it can no longer be easily updated nor is it anywhere near  complete. It is just a very small snapshot of my work. If you want to see what I’m currently doing take a look at a few of my websites:

<> <> <> <> Biography of Daniel D. Teoli Jr. <> <> <> <>

Contains NSFW content

Date of Birth: December 1954 at Los Angeles, California

Education: B.A. California State University Los Angeles, California

I am a self-taught social documentary photographer, experimental filmmaker, curator, historian, and audio archivist with 51 years experience.  With respect to my photography, I produce highest level candid photography as well as being the world leader in circular fisheye and infrared flash street photography. I also specialize in producing limited edition artist’s books.

Selection from The Americans…60 years after Frank artist’s book by Daniel D.Teoli Jr.

 


 

I started taking pictures in the mid-1960’s with the family Brownie and took up photography more seriously in 1969 learning about the ins & outs of darkroom work in my mothers bathroom and then kitchen. Throughout the 1970’s & 1980’s I worked to document the people and street life in Los Angeles and Hollywood, CA.

A nitrogen burst processor

I have experience in many areas of the wet darkroom, both in black and white and color. These include,  alternative processes, E-6, C-41, nitrogen burst processing, Type ‘C’ & Type ‘R’ printing, dye transfer printing, screen printing, process camera / halftone screening and plate burning.dye-transfer-print-fade-test-after-6-months-of-sun-daniel-d-teoli-jr-mr

Selection from Dye Stability Testing of Color Imaging Media – Edition II artist’s book by Daniel D.Teoli Jr.

Another facet of my work is in archival research and historical preservation. I do extensive archival testing as it pertains to dye stability of color imaging media and archival qualities of photography and cine’ related materials. I have also expanded my testing to include digital media that is commonly used for archiving photographs.

Within the area of historical preservation, the Daniel D. Teoli Jr. Archival Collection, which I am curator of, has a scope of over 140 areas of collection. I was an early adopter of digital collecting which makes up about 15% – 20% of the Archive.

I also work as a part-time volunteer archivist for the Internet Archive. Here are some of the items I’ve donated to the Internet Archive over the years.

Edit 1: After 5-1/2 years of working as a volunteer archivist for the Internet Archive they closed my account and deleted all my content which were +/- 130,000 individual items that were part of 1,666 collection uploads. 

Here are a few samples from the Daniel D. Teoli Jr. Archival Collection…

I also curate and manage the Daniel D. Teoli Jr. Small Gauge Film Archive and the Daniel D. Teoli Jr. Audio Archive. The Daniel D. Teoli Jr. Small Gauge Film Archive’s mission is to preserve and archive the multitude of forgotten, ignored and outcast short subject small gauge films from the 1920s – 1960s that are quietly succumbing to vinegar syndrome.

I am especially proud to have rescued Prescription for Love (see below) from the trash after it was in a hurricane in Florida.  This film is a very rare synched dialogue vintage stag film. As a rough estimate, only 1%-2% of the stag films from the 1920s to 1950s had synched dialogue. Currently the archive contains +/- 700 reels which translates into about a half-million feet of film to conserve.

Here are a few sample films from the Daniel D. Teoli Jr. Small Gauge Film Archive:

Edit 2: YouTube deleted my video.

Edit 3: I don’t have any private content on the internet. Vimeo deleted my video. Sad thing is, I don’t remember which video it was as I had multiple Vimeo and YouTube accounts.

Edit 4: Prescription for Love was removed by YouTube and they banned me. Here is the backup link for the film on the Internet Archive:

https://archive.org/search.php?query=Prescription%20For%20Love%20D.%20D.%20Teoli%20Jr.%20A.%20C

Edit 5: The Internet Archive deleted all my content.

…why don’t I remove all these dead links? It is part of my history. Why destroy history?

<><><><>

The Daniel D. Teoli Jr. Audio Archive contains +/- 15,000 hours of sound recordings with a specialty in unscoped vintage airchecks, obscure comedy recordings, reel to reel tapes, acetates, test pressings, yodeling, vintage country, blues, gospel, hillbilly and novelty music.

I am also proud of the +/- 200 hours of unscoped airchecks I recorded of talk radio and news during the early stages of the coronavirus pandemic.

Here is one example audio collection of the Old Country Record Shop from the Daniel D. Teoli Jr. Audio Archive:

…and is hand-held in available light.

That is the hallmark of the successful documentary photographer. They produce with what they got and where they are at and in any lighting conditions.

Well, lets get back to photography which is my main work…

Here are a few of my film shots from the early 1970’s. (Spacing and layout of photos has changed from the original biography. See Notes #1 & #2 above.)

Moving to the Northeast in the 1989, I continued with my interest with social documentary photography in Ohio, Michigan, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and New York. In the early 2000’s I gradually made the switch from film to digital, which I use for the majority of my work, although I still enjoy shooting swing lens and medium format film cameras.

I also like to experiment with Hyper-Real HDR color street photography if it fits the subject matter. I thankfully credit Les Krims for introducing me to that style of work.

In 2001 I suffered a major loss to my archives as a flood in Ohio destroyed the bulk of my photographs from the 1980’s and 1990’s. My earlier work from the 1970’s was only spared because I had already moved most of it to my new residence. This loss, as great as it was, inspired me to work diligently on archiving and preserving my photography.

Here are the few remaining images from the 1980’s that survived the flood. Some of these are scans of reject work prints, snapshots and a few misplaced negatives that were spared from the flood.

In addition to still photography I also work in experimental filmmaking. I’ve stopped counting the number of films I’ve produced, but I made close to 100 films in 2019 alone.

Here is a partial listing of some of the ‘Instagram’ series of films I’ve made:

Girls of Instagram

Look at #metoo (aka ‘Look at hashtag metoo’ on the Internet Archive)

Look at #metoo (Short Version)

Stretch Marks

Stretch Marks (Short Version)

Acne

Fat Ass

#Queer (aka ‘hashtag Queer’ on the Internet Archive)

Chubblebath

Mandy Blanco Dream Girl

Transition (Male to female transition)

Transmen (Female to male transition)

Color Hair

Fingernails

Tongue Fetish

Split Tongue

Split Tongue (Short Version)

Scarification

Drag Queens

Twerking

Tattooed Lesbians

Justin Day

Hairy Girls

Afra

Genderqueer

Genderqueer 2.5X

Disciples of Androgyne

Offshoots

The Prelims

The Non-Conformists

Here are 3 example films from this group on the subject of  social documentary studies from Instagram. (These are all short versions of the film.)

While the films looks like casual views of Instagram, they are not. Over 10,000 posts were curated, organized and edited to make my Genderqueer film alone. Each film requires thousands of posts to curate and organize.

Edit 14: Sorry, links to video are dead. Vimeo deleted my videos. I had back-up links to all the videos on the Internet Archive, but they also deleted them. 

Split Tongue

 

Look at #metoo

 

Transmen (Part 4 of Genderqueer…a 65 min social documentary on the gender busting revolution)

 

…just in case – a the backup link at the Internet Archive for Transmen if YT removes it.

Artist’s statement:

      I’m not much for artist’s statements. I feel the photo should be able to stand on its own and not need a chapter of esoteric bullshit to justify it. Neither am I one to write or hire authors to write long justifications and explanation for my books. My photo illustrated artist’s books are well known for their economy of text. But everyone is not visually oriented and the intellectuals like to see some words, so let me give it a go.

If I had to sum up my interest in photography…it must stem from a liking to being able to ‘freeze time.’ Cartier-Bresson described how many a street photographer feels when at large…”I prowled the streets all day, feeling very sprung-up and ready to pounce, determined to ‘trap’ life – to preserve life in the act of living.”

And that pretty much describes me to a proverbial ‘T.’ As an example, when working the subway in NYC I generally hop on the first or last car and at every stop I move to the next car to have a fresh look at the world with the hope of finding something interesting to document.

Now, combine that frantic need to see and record with a dose of Elliott Erwitt…”I just take pictures and hope something comes out of it.”

Erwitt’s quote reminds me that luck is a big factor in getting that iconic shot and to try and keep a big ego in check. Street photographers are not cut from the same cloth as studio photographers or sunset specialists. With my type of work, having a big ego and being a little off your rocker helps get the shot when the need to shove your camera in some strangers face at 2 AM arises. To do good street photography, societal conventions can not always be maintained.

Photography of all genres trains practitioners to concentrate their vision and see things the average person may overlook. Before I was a photographer, I would seldom look at the small details or focus on a subject for any length of time.

Now I notice the beauty of a weathered wall. I see potential for a photo in a dusty window screen. In short, photographers are always looking. We look at everything, visualizing play of light, composition, shapes, color, patterns and especially in my case people. For the social documentarian our work is based on humanity…people are our landscape!

There is something that transforms the snapshot into a photograph. A spark of alchemy the photographer uses that turns the ordinary photo into something that is worthy of a second look. That elusive transformation is what I set out to capture in my photography.

In a 1979 interview entitled Inside New York’s Art World, artist Louise Nevelson said:  “I think that when someone is willing to live and die for something…that means it is in the genes.”  That pretty much sums up the sacrifices that many an artist will go through in order to do their art – they are willing to live and die for their art. Whether painter, draftsman, photographer, writer, musician, sculptor, actor or poet, artists use their art as a way to see, interpret and make sense of their world.

If you’re dedicated to your art and freezing time is in your blood, you MUST produce and keep producing, whether you have an outlet or not to make $…or even have any practical use for your output. Irrespective of recognition, fame and riches, we all have one thing in common…as long as we can keep pressing the button and freeze time, we feel the better for it.
