Photographer Teri Fullerton Discusses War, Family, and Internet Dating

For Minneapolis-based photographer Teri Fullerton, the lens is a means of breaking down barriers and connecting with people, be they soldiers coming home after time at war or men who approach her on dating websites. Throughout her work, Fullerton approaches those who are often made to feel different or alien with an empathetic eye, seeking out common threads and moments of understanding between a subject and his audience.

From Mad Men Secretary to One of the Best Picture Editors of All Time — Part 2

Part two of my talk with Karen Mullarkey, who is one of the most influential and respected picture editors of all time. She’s a national treasure.

Karen cut her chops at Life Magazine and quickly moved on to be the Director of Photography at Rolling Stone, Newsweek and Sports Illustrated. If you care about photography, photographers, the editorial world or history in general, read on.

Interview: Stephen Bulger on His Acquisition of Vivian Maier Negatives

Interview: Stephen Bulger on His Acquisition of Vivian Maier Negatives

Jeffrey Goldstein, who I’ve done a couple of exhibitions of and who over a number of years built up this collection of 17,500 Vivian Maier negatives really thought that Toronto would be a safe haven for them. And I think that he was wanting also to get back to his own life which he was enjoying before he got into his Vivian Maier project

B: Q & A with Thomas Roma

Q & A with Thomas Roma

This is only the second phone I ever had. When my first one stopped working my wife took me to a Verizon store and I asked the clerk if he had a camera with a phone inside. When he said no, I said okay then give me a phone without a camera in it. He couldn’t understand why I wouldn’t want it for the same price and I had to explain I like to keep my appliances separate. I’m happy to meet someone that shares my point of view.

Q & A with Bruce Haley

It was never easy, and even the oldest of the still-living old-timers will tell you that there never was this so-called “Golden Age” when it was all unicorns and money… and certainly there may be more venues now, online, and it may be easier to self-publish your own book and shove it into the very-limited photo-world pipeline, but who’s looking at this stuff? I guess I should say, who’s buying this stuff? Just the sheer volume is astounding….

Joe McNally: Lighting the Way

In the field, we have to decide; win, lose or draw. We can’t wait for the meeting next week. And we will be second-guessed and our efforts criticized as lacking or inadequate. That’s all okay…because we were there; at that moment of exposure. Present. Engaged. Breathing the air, with an eye in the lens, hoping and waiting for a defining, conclusive bunch of elements to occur that fires the head, heart and finger…simultaneously!

We Interviewed Photojournalist Patrick Brown on Burnout, the Illegal Wildlife Trade, Photo Book Publishing, Crowdfunding and Instagram – Feature Shoot

We Interviewed Photojournalist Patrick Brown on Burnout, the Illegal Wildlife Trade, Photo Book Publishing, Crowdfunding and Instagram

For Trading to Extinction, Bangkok-based photographer Patrick Brown spent nearly a quarter of his life documenting the dark truths behind the illegal wildlife trade, from the poachers of Nepal and Cambodia to  vendors along the Burmese border. Alternately shadowing anti-poaching teams and pretending the role of an interested buyer, Brown has collected over ten years’ worth of imagery that unveils the breadth of this multibillion dollar industry, pulling clandestine moments of cruelty and exploitation from the shadows and into light. Bearing witness to Brown’s austere black and white visions, we are overtaken by the enormity and pervasiveness of the industry, and ultimately, called to action.

reFramed: In conversation with Matt Black – Framework – Photos and Video – Visual Storytelling from the Los Angeles Times

In conversation with Matt Black

A: To me, the quality of your work is totally dependent on how connected you are to what you photograph. That doesn’t mean you have to be from a place to photograph it, of course, it’s just that you need to feel deeply about what you are doing. In my case the Central Valley, these small towns, and the issues they are facing are things I feel strongly about.

In conversation: Tim Matsui on “The Long Night”

Last week, Tim and I talked over email about the process of making this documentary. It’s a fascinating piece, presented with no narration and mixing interviews, documentary footage, and graphic-novel-esque depictions of events that happened in the past. Here’s what Tim had to say:

We sat down during the masterclass to speak with all six of the masters about their professional backgrounds, photography and their experience of the masterclass.
In addition, we recorded interviews with all of the young photographers participating in the Joop Swart Masterclass. Who are they? How did they become interested in photography? And what is their photo story about?

Last interview of Lewis Baltz with Jeff Rian

This exceptional interview was the final one given by the late Lewis Baltz. It was conducted by his friend, Jeff Rian. Baltz, a secretive and reserved person, speaks unreservedly here of his life and work. Thank you, Jeff, and thank you, Diane Dufour, who suggested us last summer during the Baltz exhibition at Le BAL in Paris.
Farewell, Lewis, you were an incredible man.

One of the most important lessons from the this project was the power of collaboration and reporting. In this case I feel like having the quotes and the captions and being able to read Kelly’s full text really enhances the viewing experience of the images and adds another layer of understanding
