Post-Its and Praise: A Photographer’s Ode to His Unsung Hero

am in the habit of marking my photography books with yellow and pink Post-it notes, flagging the images that I find most influential for my own work. Yellow means good, pink means best. Most of the Post-its are in books by Norman Mauskopf—a black-and-white documentary photographer I assisted during his workshops in Santa Fe, New Mexico, and have since developed a friendship with.

Photographer Hatnim Lee Captures All Walks of Life Inside Her Parents’ Liquor Store

Hatnim Lee 07

When Korean-born photographer Hatnim Lee was a child, her parents’ Washington, D.C. liquor store was a home away from home. She was an infant when her parents moved to the United States to open up shop, and she spent much of her childhood chipping in and helping out. Their customers became a sort of extended family, popping by throughout the day to peer in and wave hello behind a layer of thick plexiglass. Plexiglass is Lee’s album of the community built by her parent’s liquor store, an ode to their hard work and to the people she has come to know both intimately and at a distance.

‘Journalist scum’ and the Cannes glitterati

Ladders m

I’m relieved to find I’m not alone in finding this juxtaposition of aggressive capitalism and high art a little difficult to stomach. A few days in, I interview director Asif Kapadia who is presenting his masterful tear-jerker documentary “Amy” about late singer Amy Winehouse. “It’s a bit weird”, he says, to appear before a mass of flashbulbs for a film that savages the role of the paparazzi.

The speed at which we need to turn images around can be critical.   In Europe, it was not uncommon to edit an 8,000-9,000 frame shoot on Saturday.   To shoot the following city Sunday.  And to complete final edit of BOTH of those cities (nearly 18,000 RAW frames) the following day just hours prior to a release of selects to the press and to the public.

During the 1960s and 70s, Lake Balaton, the biggest lake in Central Europe, was a major tourist destination for working-class Hungarians and people from the Eastern Bloc. It also served as a meeting point for Eastern and Western Germans, who were separated by the Berlin Wall until 1989, but could still travel and meet here.

New Dallas Police Photo Rights Policy Way Too Vague, Photographers Say

New Dallas Police Photo Rights Policy Way Too Vague, Photographers Say

“I’m extremely disappointed in the general order that they actually released, which is one page and, unfortunately, I think will not provide officers with the direction that they need nor explain to them why both citizens and journalists have the right to photograph,” he says. “You can’t discipline an officer without a policy. Based on this policy I don’t see where, no matter what an officer does, that there would be any discipline at all that would stick.”

Day 2 opened the doors to more practical applications of visual tech, mostly around revenue. In other words, how companies are using the discoveries of researchers to extract value, information and monetary rewards. As in the previous day, panels were a flowing mix of individual presentations and group discussions. Here are some elements of day 2 which particularly caught our attention

Someone, somewhere, recently decided to bid a fond farewell to one of the most legendary telephoto lenses ever made, the Canon EF 1200mm f/5.6 L USM. Now that it is at the B&H SuperStore, a group of photographers from B&H were given the opportunity to take this optical giant out for a unique shooting experience.

“We’ve taken a completely different approach than most people when we started it,” said Sarah Leen, director of photography at National Geographic. “The idea was to give the photographers this opportunity to have a place to display the work they were doing for us or even the work they were just doing.”
