Beyond Here is Nothing: the new book by Laura El-Tantawy – The Eye of Photography

Looking for home, for the place where she belongs has come to define the visual language of photographer Laura El-Tantawy. Born in the UK to Egyptian parents, Laura El-Tantawy has spent much of her life between cultures, living in England, and America and holidaying in Egypt. This yo-yoing between such diverse cultures has left her questioning the idea of home and where she may fit, a question that follows her no matter where she rests her head.

The endless loop of terror victims: Lazy journalism that lets ISIS run the newsroom – Poynter

But does replaying footage of victims for hours or turning over the entire homepage to the story, as CNN, Fox News and Breitbart did, elevate the public understanding of why terrorism is committed or how to stop it? Or is it just lazy and sensationalist tabloid journalism, blowing the murder of 22 people out of proportion to stoke fear?

Stanley Greene, Teller of Uncomfortable Truths, Dies at 68

“You want to sit there comfortably with your newspaper and blueberry muffin, and you don’t want to see pictures that are going to upset your morning,” Mr. Greene said in a 2010 interview with the Lens blog of The New York Times. “That is the job of a journalist, to upset your morning.”

Poet. Follower of light. Storyteller. A remembrance of photographer Stanley Greene.

Greene followed the light even into the darkest places. He was best known as a conflict photographer for his work in Chechnya, Russia, Iraq and Syria.

His books, “Open Wound” and “Black Passport,” are gorgeous journeys through his life by way of his haunting photographs.

Young photographers capture the beauty and wonder of Morocco

“Follow the light! Follow the light!” It sounded like a scene from the 1980s film “Poltergeist,” but it was, in fact, award-winning photojournalist Ron Haviv giving some high school students sound photographic advice. The light was falling on a corner in the Berber town of Tinjad at the base of the Atlas Mountains and was fading fast. Cameras at the ready, the students trained their lenses, composed and made photographs that captured the spirit of this astonishing country.
