In 1993 Photo-Talk showcased photographers and their work on a weekly basis on DCTV channel 58 in Denver, Colorado. Previously Photo-Talk offered a platform for photographers to share their photography, their back-stories and talk about their work or the medium in general to an audience. Here the audience gains a deeper understanding of what the photographer’s images mean to the photographer. The power of Photo-Talk was being able to see each photographer’s perception and how each found a unique path to their success.
In 1969 Hal Gould and the Colorado Photographic Arts Center decided to set up a gallery that would show fine art photography when the Denver Art Museum continued to refuse to show exceptional photography exhibits that were available. Eventually Hal took on the gallery as sole operator. Later on start-up galleries on each coast came to Hal for advice. When Hal closed his doors in 2012, Camera Obscura represented the world’s finest photographers.
