Why I Got Rid of My Photography Gear, Revisited

I stopped using all my gear. I put away the Broncolor lighting and all the beautiful Canon glass and picked up a rangefinder. I needed a simpler process, a guide, a set of basic rules that I could bend and push my creativity against. Abundance is the death of creativity, so I chose one camera, one lens, and one process. My photography gear dwindled down to this and nothing else:

Astronaut

These videos come from YouTube. They were uploaded in the last week and have titles like DSC 1234 and IMG 4321. They have almost zero previous views. They are unnamed, unedited, and unseen (by anyone but you).

Tiananmen Square 30 years ago with the Nikon F-801 (the fifth view of the “Tank Man”) – Nikon Rumors

Thirty years ago this week I left China after what was intended to be a week-long stay in Beijing had stretched to 59 days. As a reporter for The Associated Press based in Tokyo, I had gone to Beijing to help with the coverage of the state visit to China by Mikhail Gorbachev, leader of the then Soviet Union. But that assignment quickly morphed from covering the historic mending of the three-decade-old Sino-Soviet split to the AP’s 24/7 reporting from Tiananmen Square covering the student-led protests that culminated in the Chinese army’s violent assault on the demonstrators in the square.

America Used to Promote Photojournalism. Now It Bans It.

Julia Le Duc’s already iconic photograph of a dead father and daughter on the Rio Grande is the latest reminder of how essential photographers are to democracy.

Steve Davis – Pride in America

Pride in America is a loose-knit series of images taken from the mid 1970’s to the mid 1980’s. Most of the images were created in northern Idaho by a young man bent on chronicling his friends and events.  We were the Idaho punk pioneers, or so we thought.  We have mostly gone our own ways since then.  The initial impetus of this series was for no reason other than to share with some of the subjects captured, but I hope others might relate to the people and era I present in this work.

Dan Eldon and the power of creative activism

Hannes Jung – How is life? « burn magazine

My story “How is Life?” is not just about photography. I worked together with the protagonists and asked them to write down their personal story. These statements (see the captions) are an essential part of this project.

I photograph life not death because death cannot be seen. Maybe you can’t take pictures of the wind. But you could try to catch the consequences of the wind, bending trees and rolling waves.

A Crime Scene at the Border – The New York Times

“The last message he sent me was Saturday. He said, ‘Mama, I love you.’ He said, ‘Take care of yourselves because we are fine here.’ ”

Magazine Says Its Stolen Cover Photo Was a Stock Photo… of the Photo

Renowned photographer Nadav Kander was recently surprised to find one of his portraits used without permission on the cover of a magazine. When confronted with this, the magazine’s explanation was that the image was purchased as a stock photo — a stock photo of the copyrighted photo in an exhibition.

How Much Power Can One Image Actually Have?

When the Associated Press published Julia Le Duc’s photograph of a drowned Salvadoran man, Óscar Alberto Martínez Ramírez, and his 23-month old daughter Valeria, it sparked outrage on social media.

Juxtapoz Magazine – Interview: Shane Lavalette’s Photographic Journey Across Switzerland

American photographer Shane Lavalettes latest project, Still (Noon), is a photographic journey across Switzerland and meditation on history and the transformative power of time. Invited to participate in a group exhibition titled “Unfamiliar Familiarities. Outside Views on Switzerland,” Lavalette dove into the archives of Swiss photographer Theo Frey (1908-1997), uncovering unexpected connections with his own work and ultimately using a 1939 journey of Freys as a starting point for his project. Travelling to the same twelve villages that Frey did, he found himself reflecting on the constantly evolving meaning of photographs. “I considered the ways in which Freys photographs have different implications now than the day that they were made,” Lavalette explains, “and how the meaning of my own images will undoubtedly transform with age as well. Photographs, I realized, are much like mountains. Though we think of images as fixed and still, what we see in them is always shifting, however slowly, with time.”
