i spent a month in scotland last summer and was going through some shots that i liked. i wanted to re-tone them and put them up. i think some of these were some of my very first posts on here. but its fun to look back at your old shots and see how your feelings about them change.

We drove for several hours today until we reached the Laos border. It was incredible to see a small checkpoint protecting the two borders. The people I was with told me there are many secret police in all of the border towns that report any suspicious activity along the border, such as illegal crossings.

Here are some images from the Burley series Disappearance of Darkness, which documents the final year of the Kodak Canada facility in Toronto. This facility, which was made up of 18 buildings on a 5 hectare site, had a one hundred year history of producing photographic films and papers. It was sold in 2006 and demolished in the summer of 2007.

I spent some more time with Russ and some with his family this evening. Russ was rummaging through his burnt down house for a while trying to find anything that survived the flames. A couple things of interest made it. The bible, Book of Mormon, Sim City CDs and some wedding photos.

George Kelly is based in Portland. Although he’s probably the most patient, daring, and talented street photographer I know, he doesn’t spend much time on a computer and has virtually no web presence.

Beloved Magnum photographer Burt Glinn passed away early in the morning on April 9. Born in Pittsburgh, Pa., Glinn served in the U.S. Army from 1943-46 before studying literature at Harvard University, where he edited and took photographs for the Harvard Crimson. From 1949-50, Glinn worked for Life magazine before becoming a freelancer. He covered Castro’s takeover of Cuba and the Sinai War and created extensive portraits of countries all over the world. One of the first Americans to join Magnum, Glinn became an associate member of the young photo agency in 1951 and a full member in 1954. He served as president of Magnum from 1972-75 and was re-elected in 1987. He is survived by his wife Elena, son Sam, and daughter Norma.

When my daughter Alison was born, in the tradition of a new parent, I began to photograph her, initially in a separate and private body of work. However, in the process of documenting Alison’s growth, I developed a passionate interest in human relationships and capturing intimate moments in the lives of family and friends.

Shana Wittenwyler sort of fell into covering the primary season. That is to say, she started off in Florida shooting Ron Paul at the Republican debates for the Irish rag Mongrel Magazine, and ended up a few months later on assignment for the New York Times in Missouri. In between, she was in Iowa and South Carolina.

A freelancer, Shana didn’t mean to cover politics in particular. Since her graduation from the Photojournalism program at ICP in 2005, she has shot all sorts of features for Fortune, The Chicago Tribune, Rolling Stone, and others. But she found herself hooked on the excitement of the Ron Paul campaign when in Florida, and didn’t want to stop taking pictures. So, as a photojournalist, and a broke one at that, Shana started to contact politics editors. But you can’t call up the Times and tell them you want to shoot a campaign for them; it’s a hell of a process.

The world’s most comprehensive collection and overview of photography from China is currently on display in a mammoth city-wide exhibition in Houston, Texas, as part of FotoFest 2008. This is a tremendously ambitious and successful presentation of the important roles that photography has played in the dramatic flux that has defined and re-defined China over the past 74 years.

I started shooting this series my first trip to Iraq and always enjoy the diversion of shooting while stuffed into the back of a Humvee. It helps keep the mind off things that tend to happen while riding in the back of a Humvee. And usually, as a journalist, you end up sitting in the seat that is on top of the gas tank. Not the best place to be if something bad is to happen.

It was Philip’s consummate skill as a picture maker, carefully able to draw the viewer closer and closer to his subjects through his emotionally-charged compositions that lent such power to his work. Philip was always concerned with individuals – their personal and intimate suffering more than any particular class or ideological struggle. And the strength of his vision, that inspired so many of us, led Henri Cartier-Bresson to write of Philip: “not since Goya has anyone portrayed war like Philip Jones Griffiths.”
