Karl Mancini – Amores Perros « burn magazine

In Buenos Aires the dirty waters of Riachuelo delimit borders and people who have their houses in its proximity live in alarming conditions.On one side it is Capital Federal on the other it is Avellaneda, here Buenos aires there the Province. One of the suburbs on the river is called Isla Maciel.Amores Perros is a story of love and pain, a story of skin, street, drug, fight and violence. It is the story of some adolescents. Their stories are the stories of many Argentinean boys and girls who grow up on the streets, to whom the drug Paco has sold since the age of eight years old because cocaine is too expensive (20 pesos is the cost of a dose of Paco, just over one euro), whose effects last about two minutes and condemn people to life of dependence and slavery, often to death.

Stunning Photo Auction to Support Multiple Sclerosis Research – Feature Shoot

When the photo editor Rachael Lieberman decided to put together a photography auction to help fund treatment for people living with Multiple Sclerosis, they settled on the theme of the five senses. MS affects nerve fibers, and the disease can cause vision loss, impaired hearing, reduced smell and taste, pain, paralysis, and more. A total of fifty artists have come together to support the neurology department at UCLA with images celebrating all manner of sights, sounds, scents, flavors, and sensations.

Is Ryan Kelly’s Pulitzer Prize-winning Photograph an American ‘Guernica’?

At first glance, the photograph is nearly impossible to make sense of visually or politically. Cars are not supposed to drive into pedestrians; fellow citizens are not supposed to kill each other over political differences. And there’s so much in the frame of the image – so many figures and forms crowded together, most only partially visible – that you can’t take it in all at once.

Nadine Boughton: The Modess Women | LENSCRATCH

One of the taboo subjects in any arena is….well, menstration. Nadine Boughton tackles the subject with humor and beauty in her new series, The Moddess Woman. Her project reexamines a 1950’s ad campaign for Modess sanitary napkins, a campaign that in truth had little to do with bodily functions and more to do with glamour and mystique. She re-imagines the ads with 21st century consideration, and with her unique ability to transform the past.  Nadine’s work has been well celebrated over the years, including a number of recent exhibitions. She has eight pieces in the current exhibit, Domestic Affairs: Domesticity, Identity, and the Home, at the Newport Art Museum, Newport, RI, running through May 6, 2018, her work is featured in Outspoken: Seven Women Photographers showing at the Rhode Island Center for Photographic Arts, Providence, RI, through April 13. 2018. Plus she will have images in the new book by Robert Hirsch, Light and Lens, Photography in the Digital Age, due out May 14, 2018, published by Focal Press.

The Magic of Books Where Photography Meets Essays – The New York Times

Design-wise, the most famous collaboration between a writer and a photographer did not end up looking like much of a collaboration at all. Walker Evans contributed a preface to the 1960 reissue of “Let Us Now Praise Famous Men,” the study of poor tenant farmers in Alabama, originally published in 1941; “Walker” crops up a number of times in James Agee’s text, but a formal separation is maintained between the tenderly austere photographs of families and their homes — printed at the beginning — and the 400 pages of Agee’s highly wrought, much-agonized-over text. This, for Gore Vidal, was no bad thing, because it left Evans’s “austere” photos untainted by what “good-hearted, soft-headed admirers of the Saint James (Agee) version” so loved about the sharecroppers’ gospel.

Court Refuses to Toss Lawsuit Between Monkey and Photographer

Photographer David Slater’s legal nightmare surrounding that monkey selfie snapped in 2011 isn’t over. A US court has decided not to toss the copyright lawsuit filed against Slater by PETA on the monkey’s behalf, despite Slater and PETA reaching a settlement last year.
