Clamouring for cash on the streets of Athens

Greekbanks14 m

We knew there would be ugly scenes, as Greece said it was opening its beleaguered banks for three days to allow elderly people to draw cash. People shoving, yelling in anger at hapless bank employees. In six long years of crisis, we have seen images like this any number of times. It’s sad. But it’s the reality and your job is to record it.

Magnum NewsIn Memoriam: Charles Harbutt, 1935-2015

NN11430590

Charles Harbutt, a member of Magnum from 1963 to 1981, died at the end of June, 2015. A unique and remarkable photographer, he was president of Magnum twice — from 1970-1972 and 1976-1978 — and was an important presence in the agency for many years. Charlie was also a singular teacher — as well as an insightful and thought provoking writer on photography, as exhibited by the following texts, which are excerpts from his three monographs. We at Magnum will miss him deeply and send our condolences to his widow, the photographer Joan Liftin, and his children, Sarah, Charles, and Damian. — Alex Webb

If photographing the Tour de France doesn’t sound difficult enough, imagine doing it while riding on the back of a motorbike travelling up to 60 miles per hour. Laurent Cipriani has been doing that for the Associated Press since 2011, part of a team of photographers, editors, and drivers—what he refers to as “a travelling theater.”

New Guide! Film Photography in a Digital Age

Film sm1

The resurgence of interest in film photography is more than just nostalgia. There is still an ineffable quality to film.  The physical tangibility combined with a slower, more intentional process has attracted a new generation of photographer to augment the stalwarts. We love film, and we’re constantly amazed at the companies, entrepreneurs and photographers that continue to support it in its various forms.

Swift played in the first of two sold-out shows in Dublin last night, but The Irish Times decided not to include any photography in its coverage of the concert. In an article titled “Why there’s no photo of Taylor Swift’s gig in today’s ‘Irish Times’,” the newspaper explains that they had issues with “a number of onerous restrictions” in Swift’s photo authorization contract.

From 2011 to 2014, I began taking pictures inside the walls of Belgian prisons. From Wallonia to Flanders, with several stops in Brussels, I sought to present a complete picture of a system ruled by the authorities and the criminals. I met with guards, young, nervous inmates, mentally ill prisoners, old bosses, foreigners, women, children, families, directors, and calm, long-term detainees.
