Ranching families on Cheyenne River Reservation face a choice: Staying in an industry they can’t keep up with or leaving the only life they’ve known – The Washington Post

Photographer Emily Schiffer has dedicated no small part of her career to documenting the lives of people living on the Cheyenne River Reservation. In September 2017, In Sight published some of that work: “Playful and poetic: The children of the Cheyenne River Reservation.” Schiffer’s work goes beyond the usual portrayals of poverty and alcohol addiction that many mainstream media outlets have published from that region and its people throughout the years.

John Vink – Refugees

We have decided, since this problem of refugees, migrants and other pariahs does not date from yesterday, to show the precious photographic work of John Vink who, from the eighties until the dawn of the year two thousand, has crisscrossed the world to document the fate of refugees with rare precision and stubbornness. From the forced departure of their country, to the arrival and the attempt to rebuild a “normal” life. It is then the whole process of this uprooting which appears to us in a respectful, dignified and talented iconography.

Ralph Gibson – The Leica camera Blog

When Ralph Gibson’s first major work “The Somnambulist” was published in 1970, it marked a monumental moment in the evolution of photography. At a time when the medium was essentially defined by its ability to document reality in the form of photojournalism, Gibson was one of the first exponents of a new approach. Inspired by artists, writers and musicians of the day, “The Somnambulist” represented a seismic shift in the visual language of photography.

Helen Levitt’s Street Photos Blend the Poetic With the Political – The New York Times

New York City’s doorways, storefronts and cascading fire escapes were the grand backdrop to Helen Levitt’s photos. In the Lower East Side and Harlem, children pretended to be bride and groom, wore masks for Halloween or drew with chalk on the sidewalk. The lyricism of her work led her to be called the city’s visual poet laureate, supposedly an apolitical, black-and-white photographer of the everyday.

Lee Friedlander’s Intimate Portraits of His Wife, Through Sixty Years of Marriage | The New Yorker

Lee Friedlander once slyly assessed his promiscuous eye by saying, “I tend to photograph the things that get in front of my camera.” For Friedlander, this was in part a kind of formalist credo: his most innovative photographs are elegant spatial muddles, frames so stuffed to the gills that one imagines his hidebound camera-club contemporaries clutching their manuals in horror. But it was also, of course, an emphatic statement of fact. Like many of the pioneering American photographers of the middle twentieth century, Friedlander’s life in pictures meant pounding the pavement, and piling Kerouacian miles on his odometer in between. Now eighty-four years old, he once said that the longest he’s gone without shooting was the three months it took him to recover from a double knee replacement, in 1998. But the things that got in front of Friedlander’s camera weren’t always out in the wilds of the street. Sometimes, the consummate peripatetic photographed within the quieter confines of his home.

A Portrait of Life Secluded in the Ozark Mountains | The New Yorker

It was the poetry of Frank Stanford that first drew the photographer Matthew Genitempo to the Ozarks. “When you take the lost road . . . / You find lovers who’ve been listening / For the same roosters to sing / For twenty centuries,” Stanford, who inhabited the mountainous region for most of his adult life, writes in his poem “Circle of Lorca.” “When you get lost on the road / You run into the dead.”

Liza Ambrossio – The rage of devotion – La ira de la devoción « burn magazine

Some time ago I decided to change my life in the most extraordinary way possible. I looked in and without intending it I remembered the phrase with which my mother said goodbye the last time I saw her at sixteen years old – “I wish you well, and believe me I hope you’ll become strong and brave, so you can be merciless when the time comes to destroy your body and crush your soul the next time we see each other”- After an overwhelming emotional breakdown, I started this series of images intermingling with pictorial canvases and photographs of my family archive to impel the observer to immerse themselves in my psychology.
