We Are Not Stealing Your Bandwidth @loeildelaphotoA quick note here about the “Stop Stealing Bandwidth” message that posts linking to The Eye of Photography are displaying here at The Click: The Click links to the best content, mostly photojournalism-related, from around the world. When we link to a site, The Click (through code) asks their site for the open graph information that their site provides. This is the same image and headline and text information that comes up when someone posts a link to Twitter or Facebook. It is provided by sites to make links more attractive. Again, it is provided by their site, voluntarily. It is in the code of every page on their site. Eye of Photography, if you feel that sites that link to your posts are stealing bandwidth by presenting images that you yourself are providing in your open graph data, feel free to remove that open graph data from your site. Until then, or the Stop Stealing Bandwidth image is removed from their posts, we highly recommend The Eye of Photography to all readers as an excellent source of amazing photography, but will refrain from linking to its articles.
Quit Social Media. Your Career May Depend on It. – NYTimes.com
In a capitalist economy, the market rewards things that are rare and valuable. Social media use is decidedly not rare or valuable. Any 16-year-old with a smartphone can invent a hashtag or repost a viral article. The idea that if you engage in enough of this low-value activity, it will somehow add up to something of high value in your career is the same dubious alchemy that forms the core of most snake oil and flimflam in business
Criticism’s Sting: The Author Curtis Sittenfeld on Book Reviews – The New York Times
I think of reviews being mapped on a graph with four quadrants, and I’ll read the ones that are smart and positive, smart and negative, or dumb and positive (hey, all our egos need a little sustenance!). But there’s no point in reading a dumb, negative review

Deep Fried Pizza, by Giulio Saggin
Steve Butcher is young, Australian and living in Scotland. He is a tabloid photographer. He is also disillusioned. His life isn’t one of Page 3 Girls and celebrities. Instead, his morals and ethics are compromised every day. Thankfully, his life also revolves around beer, football, cable TV and, occasionally, women. It is through these he maintains his sanity. However, by the time his fourth Scottish winter – a particularly fierce one – arrives, he is at his wits’ end…

Distil Ennui Studio – works by photographer Alexander James
Here you will find some of the new additions to the Tokyo Taxi series, which is due to be published in a book by Merrell at the end of this year. Completing the series was no easy task despite the 58,000 registered taxi’s from 1024 companies on Tokyo’s roads. This is because over 95% are from six of the main companies operating in the city, meaning they all have the same signs on their roof. Tracking down some of the much rarer companies with as few as 4 cars on the streets bearing their unique illuminations proved a lengthy process.

Link: Unconsciousness by Romain Philippon
“Inconscience” (french for “Unconsciousness”) is a photographic project about sleepers in the world, that I started few years ago. I began to photograph sleepers that I came accross during my travels. I saw in them so much poetry, but also questions about the world and the derailment of society. I ‘m now launching a presale campaign, to be able to publish the book f these pictures myself. That would hopefully give me more freedom in my future work. I’ll need to sell 250 copies to start the publishing process.

Link: Killing Season Chicago
Chicago photographer Krista Wortendyke has brought her “Killing Season: Chicago 2010” project to Wicker Park. Mounted on the facade of The Violet Hour, the public art installation will be on display through early August. Wortendyke began the “Killing Season” project in response to the particularly hot and violent summer of 2010 during which the Supreme Court overturned Chicago’s strict 28-year-old handgun ban. Modified slightly to fit the front of The Violet Hour, this current piece represents the homicides that took place between July 1 and Labor Day, and shows 107 of the 173 killings that took place in the city last summer between Memorial Day and Labor Day 2010. Each column of the skyline-like chart represents a day and each image represents a person, and are individually meant to be reflections, meditations on the city and collectively, the images are a call to action and serve to raise awareness. Repeated images denote that there were multiple people killed in that location.

Born in 1969, Christophe Calais begins his career at the national newspaper France-Soir in 1990. In 1992, he becomes a staff photographer at VSD Magazine and covers international news for six years, with a particular interest in Rwanda, a country on which he still reports today. Rewarded by the Scoop d’Angers Festival in 1997, his work on Rwanda has led to the publication of a book Le cri des morts, le silence des vivants and to an exhibition at the 1998 Perpignan Festival of Photojournalism as well as a projection at that same Festival in 2002 and 2004. In 1998, Christophe decides to become a freelancer and his work is published by several international magazines. In 2002, he is the co-author of a documentary on Rwanda, based on his photographic work. His new book, Rwanda, le pays hanté is published in 2006 and exhibited at the group show “Pour une photographie engagée” at the Bibliothèque Nationale de France in Paris. Six years ago, Christophe started to work on a long-term project about refugee resettlement in America. Part of this work was nominated for a Visa d’Or in 2003, exhibited at Honfleur Festival in 2004 and shown at the “Africa Fast forward” exhibition in Brussels in 2009.
