by Efrem Zelony-Mindell, aCurator You’ve probably seen and possibly heard the story of Eric Pickersgill’s body of work: REMOVED. How Eric noticed a family in a coffee shop all staring at their personal devices and simultaneously feeling disgusted dejected
The emails quickly ramped up to over 300 a day and Eric says, “money floated into my mind as an afterthought, but I soon realized I was going to need some help.” Almost without exception, the expectation was that images would be given for publication for free. He did not get too many “it will be great exposure for you” insults, but the sense was he would be eager to be published. And Eric was very eager to be published and a number of websites and blogs benefitted.
Jerome Liebling, a photographer, filmmaker and teacher, died Wednesday at 87. Obituaries appear on the Web sites of The New York Times, The Daily Hampshire Gazette and Hampshire College, where his students included James Estrin, now a staff photographer at The Times and a co-editor of Lens.
