Street Photos of 1960s New York in Kodachrome by Tod Papageorge – The New York Times

Tod Papageorge was relatively new to Manhattan and photography when he set out in the mid-1960s to make his mark. While street photographers with black-and-white film darted around pedestrians and traffic, he was attracted to storefronts with their harmonized symmetry and varying shades of gold between jelly jars and cider jugs. Traditionally, black and white was the choice of street photography, and color was for commercial work. His contemporaries, Joel Meyerowitz and Garry Winogrand, urged him to use color.

When the Camera Was a Weapon of Imperialism. (And When It Still Is.) – The New York Times

The invention of the daguerreotype was announced in 1839. By the 1840s, photography had spread like wildfire and become a vital aspect of European colonialism. It played a role in administrative, missionary, scientific and commercial activities. As the Zimbabwean novelist Yvonne Vera put it: “The camera has often been a dire instrument. In Africa, as in most parts of the dispossessed, the camera arrives as part of the colonial paraphernalia, together with the gun and the bible. …”

In Venezuela, Women in Prison Awaiting Trial Endure Crowded Conditions – The New York Times

The Unseen Robert Frank: Outtakes From ‘The Americans’ – The New York Times

Only 83 of the nearly 28,000 photographs Mr. Frank made during his journeys appeared in the book, which was published in France in 1958 and then in the United States a year later. In 1978, Mr. Frank sold the rest of those photos, along with his entire archive at the time, to cover living expenses and fund his filmmaking. While some of those photographs have since been exhibited at various museums and galleries, there are still many thousands more that, with apologies to Mr. Kerouac, have been seen before on film — but never by a wide audience.

She was the only woman of color in the photo departments where she worked and was ignored or treated dismissively.
