The Curious Society Wants to Print a New Photojournalism Magazine - PhotoShelter Blog

Veteran photojournalist Kenneth Jarecke announced the creation of The Curious Society, a membership-based, quarterly print publication for contemporary photojournalism.

A few weeks ago, veteran photojournalist Kenneth Jarecke announced the creation of The Curious Society, a membership-based, quarterly print publication for contemporary photojournalism. While some might reflexively balk at starting a printed magazine in the digital age, Jarecke believes there is a market for people who want a tactile experience, and one that forces them to more slowly appreciate photography – and if he’s right, he’ll also be paying photographers a meaningful licensing fee in return.

SO, that leads to the answer. I think I am drawn to anything that is interesting to me, mostly people and how they present themselves and act. I trust my eye and sensibilities as I walk around to guide me. I probably err on the side of being a tad cynical. I like shooting people most. I think that is the hardest kind of photo to take, so I enjoy the rush of getting close and seeing and and trying to compose and capture a little slice of reality that can transcend the moment and tell a story on its own. Although I'm sure many of mine do not succeed on that level, and of course they are open to varying interpretations, that's the idea.

Conflict Photography at Home: An Interview With New Orleans’ Abdul Aziz - PhotoShelter Blog

New Orleans conflict photographer Abdul Aziz shares his experiences as a Black photographer documenting the 2020 Black Lives Matter protests and more.

As a Black photographer specializing in conflict photography, Aziz’s work has a certain intangible authenticity to it; no doubt one of the reasons his images caught my eye on Instagram. The combination of his photos and personal stories shed a bright light on the editorial gaps surrounding the current coverage of the 2020 George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and Black Lives Matter protests. This media coverage in recent weeks has followed a well-known trend in photojournalism, skewing heavily toward images made by older white male photojournalists, amidst a growing discussion about the importance of hiring more Black photographers.
