APhotoADay is different things to different people. It started off as an email listserv and a website. It was a home for work you shot for you — not them. It was a place to get constructive criticism. A place to seek inspiration. A like-minded group of people dedicated to the advancement of photojournalism. People who wanted to raise the bar for everyone. It became a community. A family.
Abbas and the Revolution is an attempt to showcase some of the photographs of one of the most important photographers of our time about one of the most important events of the 20th century. Having two “importants” in the first sentence of this introduction shows that we are quite aware of our monumental task. We know that we can never do justice to Abbas’s career as a photographer, and that despite our best efforts we may be able to tell only a small part of the story of the 1979 Iranian Revolution.
Launch the first issue of Me-Mo Magazine, and your tablet’s screen springs to life, offering a cinema-like introduction to a variety of photo essays by its five founding photographers. With a combination of still images, video, text and informational graphics, it seeks to use as many different tools to capture the reader’s imagination. But what it really is aiming for is something that is time-tested: to create a community.
MEMO’s first issue talks about FEAR.
The fear of war, the lack of freedom or education, the fear of not making it or not being accepted.

Today, we’re launching the first phase of a special new project from our team here at PhotoShelter. It’s called Lattice. With Lattice, our mission is simple — to connect people with the photos they love and the creators behind those photos.

Warren launched the site earlier this year with work from ten photographers, and it’s grown since then to feature the work of more than 70. She posts daily, and receives a few submissions each day. Warren says she is trying “to create a quiet space,” with the project, “a place where people can go and be there with the photographs and be there with the intimacy of it.”

The Team of the Journal and I draw the line. It’s over, this is our last issue.
One should not scorn with impunity a great team who for nearly three years worked to help create the Journal , developed and led it to where it is today. The Journal was a concept, and it was mine, but above all it was a team who day after day showed passion, dedication and enthusiasm. There is sadness, bitterness, regret, of course. The Journal was you, every day more numerous and passionate
