The Works of Photographer Toni Frissell – The Atlantic

Toni Frissell began her career in photography in the 1930s, at first working as a fashion photographer for Vogue magazine. During World War II, she was, for a time, the official photographer for the American Red Cross,  and later, the Women’s Army Corps. Her work took her to Europe, where she photographed soldiers and civilians affected by the war, including a famous series featuring the Tuskegee Airmen at an air base in Italy. In later years, she continued a career of photographing both famous and ordinary people for decades, amassing a collection of some 340,000 images. In 1971, Frissell donated her photographs to the Library of Congress, preserving the images and making them available to everyone. Below, a small collection of Frissell’s work. These images from this pioneer in her field are windows into our recent past.

Ryan Casson – Deconstruction « burn magazine

I want to believe. I want you to believe. Something. Anything. Crave it. Authenticity. The real. Feeling. To me, this is what is most important. For the absence of the real is fiction. I point the camera outward–and inward–as I frame and re-frame my reality–and yours. Choices. A coming to an understanding. This is what my deconstruction feels like. Yes, deconstruction.

B: Q & A with Josef Chladek

Shelf after shelf, but there’s no more room to put up more shelves in the flat. So my slow down may be just a consequence of running out of space. No organization on the walls at all. Nobody would find anything here. That’s the reason I made the virtual bookshelf, to find books by spine (color/size) more easily in real life!

Egyptian Prosecutors Seek Death Penalty for Photojournalist Shawkan | PDNPulse

“Seeking the death penalty for a photographer who simply covered an opposition demonstration is a political punishment, not an act of justice,” RSF said. “Shawkan’s only crime was trying to do his job as a photographer. He must be freed at once.”

Stolen Moments of Solitude at the World’s Busiest Airport | The New Yorker

Mark Steinmetz, a photographer based in Athens, Georgia, and best known for his black-and-white portraits of strangers—accumulated through prolific wandering and watchfulness—has, in recent years, turned his attention to Hartsfield’s labyrinthine spaces. As he explained in an episode of the “Magic Hour” podcast, he photographed the airport from all sides: “outskirts, the people on the sidewalk, the drop-off, the pick-up locations, in the terminals—because I fly so much—and pictures of the planes taking flight, pictures in planes, pictures of planes.”

Thomas Kiefer: El Sueño Americano – The American Dream | LENSCRATCH

I first encountered Thomas Kiefer’s powerful and timely project, El Sueño Americano – The American Dream, two years ago at the Medium Festival of Photography in San Diego. The project stayed with me long after the event and I’m thrilled to have had a chance to see the work on exhibition and share it today. El Sueño Americano – The American Dream is a heartbreaking series of conceptual still lifes focusing on objects collected when when Thomas was a janitor at a U.S. Customs and Border Patrol processing facility in Southwest Arizona. The items were items taken from migrants trying to cross the border and then discarded. Thomas retrieved the artifacts and created an artistic re-visioning that documents stories of pain, possibility, loss, and hope. This profound series focuses on simple things that migrants brought with them on their journeys–a bar of soap, a toothbrush, a pair of gloves–relics that had significant meaning to the original owner. The work speaks to the crisis of those seeking a better life on our side of the border and as Thomas states about the objects, “their disposal is a clear and intentional act of dehumanization”.

For Two Months, I Got My News From Print Newspapers. Here’s What I Learned. – The New York Times

This has been my life for nearly two months. In January, after the breaking-newsiest year in recent memory, I decided to travel back in time.
