This picture was made while a Bollywood film was b 1655366620862006768
Mumbai, IndiaReportShareDownload1377

This picture was made while a Bollywood film was being shot in Mumbai’s Film City in 2004 and I was doing a National Geographic essay on Bollywood.The actress Rimi Sen is in the middle dancing to one of themusical numbers that typically occur in Bollywood films.A film crew member is pointing an industrial strength air blower to toss Rimi’s hair into a tumultuous disarray appropriate for her body movements.The problem with photographing on film sets is that there tends to be a lot of waiting around for something to happen and quite often in my Bollywood experiences it was usually after a lot of really nice light was wasted while the set was being arranged. Then they brought in a lot of artificial lights that weren’t nearly as wonderful as the natural light that had come and gone.@natgeo@thephotosociety#bollywood#india#bollywooddance#bollywoodactress#dance#dancing#hair#film#filmmaking#williamalbertallard

Oaxaca, MexicoReportShareDownload251.88K

In 1980 I had a commission from the Polaroid Corporation to shoot their very first SX-70 Time Zero film. I chose to photograph in Oaxaca, Mexica with its generous color palette evidenced in the buildings and the clothing of its inhabitants. I stopped each day at an interior market where I saw this wall and stayed to make pictures of passersby such as this woman carrying a baby. Although I was shooting mostly Polaroid SX-70 cameras I also had my Leicas and I made this image with my Leica and Kodachrome 35 mm film. My Polaroid images were exhibited as a one-man show at the Clarence Kennedy Gallery in Cambridge, Mass.@natgeo@thephotosociety@leica_camera@leicacamerausa#oaxaca#mexico#painted#walls#paint#yellow#green#white#streetphotography#palette#streetphotographers#streetphoto#leica#kodachrome#filmphotography#williamalbertallard

Basque CountryReportShareDownload1086.42K

***FLASH SALE ENDS WEDNESDAY AT 11:59PM*** This Wednesday I will conclude the first flash sale of one of my pictures, “Basque girls running home, France, 1967.” It has been quite successful.My reasoning behind offering a flash sale is that I can make one of my iconic images available to those who may not be photography collectors but would like to own a signed print at a very reasonable cost. By pricing my flash sale print at $100.00 I can put that image in reach of most people.My flash sale print is a 6” x 9” archival inkjet print on 9” x 11” archival watercolor paper. The success of this first flash sale has convinced me that I should do this semi-annually and will plan to offer another image this coming spring.As with this sale, the spring flash sale will be two-weeks in duration. I am not yet sure what the next image will be. I have a 50 year archive to choose from. It won’t really be easy to make the pick. For now, “Basque girls running home” is still available until the end of Wednesday, November 15. My heartfelt thanks to those of you who are now, or about to become owners of this print. I hope it brings you a lifetime of pleasure.William Albert Allard#flashsale#basquecountry#basque#instagood#france#french#village#mountains#pyrenees#children#child#filmphotography#kodachrome#limitededition#gramoftheday#discoverearth#discoverglobe#onassignment#nationalgeographic#pastel#painting#williamalbertallard

In the fall of 1967 I was up on the mountainside o 1637759604882910431
Basque CountryReportShareDownload222.37K

In the fall of 1967 I was up on the mountainside of the French Basque Country photographing a farmer and his wife working with a pair of mules, cutting, raking and stacking hay. The woman has a lean and strong looking body, tanned by much exposure to the elements. She worked every bit as hard as her husband to make a go of their rural life with all of their work in those years still done with animals, not tractors. The face of the mule in the foreground kind of draws us in to the center of the picture dominated by the farmer, another mule, and his wife. I’ve always regretted making the bottom of the frame so abrupt. I should have allowed more space at the bottom. My photo essay was called “In the Land of the Ancient Basques,” in the August, 1968 issue.@natgeo@natgeocreative@thephotosociety#mules#mulesofinstagram#basquecountry#basque#farming#farm#rural#hay#homestead#homesteading#filmphotography#kodachrome#williamalbertallard

In 1990 I had the pleasure of spending most of my summer going to ball games for a National Geographic magazine article about minor league baseball. I traveled with my cameras to cities and @vtownsaround the country in pursuit of the game and the places where it was played. I concentrated on the lower levels of the minors, where the teams are made up of many young men who will not reach the major leagues but will always be able to say that they played professional baseball. From Arizona to California to Utah and Montana, with stops in Texas, Wisconsin, Iowa, Illinois, Tennessee, North Carolina, and West Virginia, this was a summer I treasured. It brought me back to days long past, in the 1940’s and ‘50s, when baseball seemed a part of every boy’s life, when the sport needed no apologies, and its heroes stayed heroes. When baseball was truly the great American game and a part of our consciousness.@natgeo@natgeocreative@thephotosociety@milb@mlb#minorleague#minorleaguebaseball#baseballseason#baseball#baseballlife#baseballstadium#battingpractice

This was made at a small festival in the mountaino 1634346819272416225
Basque CountryReportShareDownload613.91K

This was made at a small festival in the mountainous Basque town of Sare, in 1967 while I was documenting the French and Spanish Basque country for National Geographic magazine. The picture was made at dusk, the time the French call “the time between dogs and wolves,” when it’s no longer really daylight and not yet truly dark. Several of the dancers are slightly blurred from their movement.The film I was using was not very fast but the slight movement adds to the feeling of the ambience. The fading light, the warmth of the colored light bulbs strung above, framing the scene. A solitary girl stands watching the dancers. It reminds me of some Impressionist paintings where dancers are shown in great intimacy. Not to say this is like a painting. No, it’s a photograph but one that might carry the feeling of the ambience as I remember it. My hope in making a picture is often that the viewer will feel what I felt when I was there.@natgeo@thephotosociety@natgeocreative@leica_camera#basquecountry#basque#festival#dance#dancing#dusk#filmphotography#kodachrome#leica#village#williamalbertallard

In 1990 I had the pleasure of being asked by National Geographic magazine to do an essay on minor league baseball.I worked in various parts of the country, photographing mostly what I consider the “edges” of the game, not the action.This simple image of a member of the Stockton Ports team based in Stockton, California, raising his bat above his head, stretching his muscular and suntanned arms before taking his place at the plate, is a kind of universal image at least in the wonderful world of baseball, a game I grew up with in the 1950s when it truly was the great American pastime.@natgeo@thephotosociety@natgeocreative@milb@mlb@stocktonports@athletics@stocktonca#baseball#minorleague#minorleaguebaseball#baseballbat#baseballlife#baseballseason#stockton#stocktonca

During my stay in Sicily in 1994, I found myself t 1631996168160757652
Sicilia, ItalyReportShareDownload392.63K

During my stay in Sicily in 1994, I found myself traveling along the southwestern coast with my assistant driving. I noticed a large flock of sheep moving across through an open field and the landscape had layers of light and then I saw the wild roses. I think they were roses. I asked Massimo to stop the car. I jumped out, grabbed a shoe mount strobe and jammed it onto my camera and quickly estimated an exposure that would light the flowers but not spread light over a wide area, just really on the warmth of the blossoms. This was with film, no back of the camera monitor to show me the result. I guess it comes with practice and back in those years I did a fair amount of mixing daylight and strobe.I got this one right.@natgeo@thephotosociety@natgeocreative#sicily#rose#wildroses#roses#sheep#filmphotography#kodachrome#williamalbertallard

I met Laure Lochet on the streets of Paris in 2013.She was on her way to the Josephine Baker swimming pool that is moored on the Seine during the summer months. Laure did some acting and had majored in communication arts in school.She spoke perfect English and my assistant, Catalina Martin-Chico and I invited Laure to tea to discuss the possibility of me having a portrait session with her.We did the photographs in my room at the Hotel Les Rives de Notre Dame at 15 Quai Saint-Michele, overlooking the Seine and just a few hundred yards from the Cathederal Notre Dame. In the early 1900s my visual hero, Henri Matisse, had his studio just four doors down, at 19 Quai Saint-Michele. One of his famous paintings was done in that studio, with a nude reclining on a settee against the wall with a view of the Seine and the Pont Saint-Michele seen through a partly opened window. I made this image as a kind of homage to Matisse.@natgeo@natgeocreative@thephotosociety@leica_camera#portrait#portraitphotography#matisse#paris#parís
