This Year at Photoville: 16 Photographers Share Their Best Motivational Advice – PhotoShelter Blog

We’re gearing up for the second weekend of Photoville and couldn’t be more excited to wrap up one of our favorite photo events of the year. Produced by our friends at United Photo Industries, this free event in beautiful Brooklyn Bridge Park features a modular village made from repurposed shipping containers. It’s oozing with masterful photography, business tips, workshops and opportunities to meet the who’s who of the industry. It’s also in its eighth year, which inspired us to switch things up a bit for 2019. Instead of hosting our customary one-day educational panel discussions, we decided to fully dive in, exhibiting incredible PhotoShelter member imagery in a 40’ shipping container while also recording episodes of our podcast Vision Slightly Blurred nearby.

Paul Guilmoth & Dylan Hausthor – Sleep Creek « burn magazine

Sleep Creek i​s a landscape filled with trauma and beauty. It’s a place where animals are only seen when they’re being hunted​ and ​humans balance between an unapologetic existence and an abyss of secrecy. These images manipulate a landscape that is simultaneously autobiographical, documentary, and fictional: a weaving of myth and symbol in order to be confronted with the experiential. Following the rituals of those within it, ​​Sleep Creek​​ ​is an obsession between the subject and the photographer—a compulsion to reveal its shrouded nature.

Ivor Prickett : End of the Caliphate

Ivor Prickett’s book End of the Caliphate is the result of months spent on the ground in Iraq and Syria between 2016 and 2018 photographing the battle to defeat ISIS. Working exclusively for the New York Times, Prickett was often embedded with Iraqi and Syrian Kurdish forces as he documented both the fighting and its toll on the civilian population and urban landscape. The battle to defeat ISIS in the region, resulted in thousands of civilian deaths and ruined vast tracts of cities such as Mosul and Raqqa. Involving some of most brutal urban combat since World War II, the fall of Mosul was key to the downfall of the Islamic State: soon after the remains of the so-called “Caliphate” began to crumble.

Notebook: The Writer of the Future

As the monopolies grow, the possibilities for securing revenue for writing and being party to its distribution constrict. According to the Poynter Institute, jobs in journalism shrank by 23 percent between 2007 and 2018 (in print by 45 percent). Shane Bauer’s 2016 report on private prisons, which contributed to a Justice Department decision to end private prison contracts, reportedly cost $350,000 to produce and brought its publishers $5,000 in ad revenue. Observers dispute attempts to place a dollar amount on what Google and Facebook have pulled from journalism earnings, but no one disputes that Google and Facebook have grown rich advertising around journalism, and news publishers, who create the “content” and pay those who write it, are losing. Other models for funding journalism, such as philanthropy and venture capital, are coming up short as well.

Gavin Watson Looks Back on His Childhood as a British Skinhead – Feature Shoot

Long before the UK skinhead scene was co-opted by right-wing movements it was a culture created by the working class looking to forge a connection across the races. If first emerged on the streets of London in 1969 in response to the self-indulgent pretensions of bourgeois hippiedom. Forged in the council estates and East End slums, skinhead culture combined the style and sound of the Windrush generation with the back-to-basics aesthetics of post-war Britain. It was reborn again in the late 1970s and 80s, just as photographer Gavin Watson came of age.

Juxtapoz Magazine – Fred Herzog, a Pioneer of Color Photography, Dies at 88

The world has lost another photography great this week. Fred Herzog, an early pioneer of color and street photography, died in Vancouver on Monday at age 88. Herzog started photographing in and around Vancouver in 1953, making images awash with vibrant color – complex, mysterious, exuberant, and full of life, much like the city he photographed. As David Campany noted in his introduction to the book Modern Color, Herzog “observed the grain of that city as it lived, worked, played, and changed . . . . Few other bodies of photography in the history of the medium have come close to the richness of Herzogs extended city portrait.”

How Robert Frank’s Photographs Helped Define America | The New Yorker

nation that is premised on an idea—not on an alleged shared bloodline or eons of history on common acreage—is prone to periodically question exactly who and what it is. The matter that binds Americans, as much as any doctrine or document, is the pursuit of a definition of who Americans are. There are facile adjectives applied to us—optimistic, volatile, swaggering—but they more often seem to apply to pretensions that we wear before the world. Who we are in our unguarded moments, and even what portion of people are included in the word we, is another matter entirely. This is part of the reason that Robert Frank’s photographic essay “The Americans,” published in France in 1958 and released in the U.S. a year later, is both an indelible reflection of American culture and one of the works that helped define it. To produce it, Frank, who died this week, at the age of ninety-four, spent two years scouring the country in a used car, courtesy of a Guggenheim grant, a contrail of dust his most constant companion.
