Fractured Lands: How the Arab World Came Apart

The story of more than a decade of war, terror and revolution in the Middle East, seen through the eyes of six people whose lives were changed forever.

Scott Anderson’s story gives the reader a visceral sense of how it all unfolded, through the eyes of six characters in Egypt, Libya, Syria, Iraq and Iraqi Kurdistan. Accompanying Anderson’s text are 10 portfolios by the photographer Paolo Pellegrin, drawn from his extensive travels across the region over the last 14 years, as well as a landmark virtual-reality experience that embeds the viewer with the Iraqi fighting forces during the battle to retake Falluja.

Stephen Crowley: Time Spent: Florida 1972-1984

I discovered Stephen Crowley's terrific exploration of Florida in the 1970's and 80's when jurying Photolucida's Critical Mass Competition. Stephen's project, Time Spent: Florida 1972-1984 went on to be selected as one of the Top 50 portfolios of 2015. At

I discovered Stephen Crowley’s terrific exploration of Florida in the 1970’s and 80’s when jurying Photolucida’s Critical Mass Competition. Stephen’s project, Time Spent: Florida 1972-1984 went on to be selected as one of the Top 50 portfolios of 2015. At the young age of 20, Stephen had already identified himself as a street photographer and had a rare ability to capture moments that, now seen 40 years later, were insightful, telling, and iconic. His work allows us to consider a period in history that comes after the shape-shifting era of change in the 1960’s and early 1970’s and realize that Florida was slower to evolve and that the stark contrast between the classes was ever present.

Fernando Moleres’s project ‘Melting Landscapes’ reduces the Arctic region’s vast vistas—towering icebergs, massive glaciers, snow-swept ice sheets—to their most minimal elements. The biggest challenge was having enough cloudy, gray days to achieve just the right look.

Michael S. Williamson: Color My World — zPhotoJournal

I will say this; I do think there’s a teeny bit of a shortage of good ideas to be honest with you.  Robert Gilka, then the Chief of Photography for National Geographic once said, “We're up to our armpits in great photographers, but up to our ankles in good ideas.” So the only advice I would give is, “You’re talented, you’re smart, you’re dreamers, you’ve taken this on…so go poke around in some darker corners that haven’t had some light on them yet.”

Opinion | Beat the Press

Because it’s open season on journalism — from the left and right — powerful partisan voices have emerged, injecting lies into the public arena.

I’d like to believe that this video snippet was just another absurdity of campus life, where the politics are so vicious, as they say, because the stakes are so small. But it goes to a more troubling trend — the diminishment of a healthy, professionally trained free press.

David Burnett: Marathon Man — zPhotoJournal

To be a photographer in this age, you have to really WANT to do it.  Don’t do it just because you can’t think of anything else to do.  Go to workshops, and perhaps more important, use your library and even the web to find work which inspires you.  One of the things which I find so disconcerting is that very few young photographers today can tell you who the photojournalists of note were in the 50's, 60's, and 70's. I fear there is a certain kind of self-validation which shooting/seeing immediately engenders

Elliott Erwitt has been taking pictures since the late forties. This exhibition is a unique and comprehensive survey of his work. Erwitt’s unmistakeable, often witty, style gives us a snapshot of the strange and the mundane over a period of more than half a century, through the lens of one of the era’s finest image-makers.

The Changing Landscape of the American West

After Lucas Foglia was rescued by a passing driver during a snowstorm in Wyoming, he set out to photograph the evolving landscape of the American West and the communities most affected by its changes.

In the late fall of 2009, the photographer Lucas Foglia set out on a rural road in Wyoming and got caught up in the vastness of the land.

Magnum Photos Blog

At the borders of Europe, migrants try to force their way into this impenetrable citadel. Migrants, a generic name for lives that are nonetheless distinct. Through photography and video, Antoine d’Agata distances himself from a sensational or dramatic approach. He gets right up close to the experience and the odyssey of these men and women. Their everyday lives consist of vagabond journeyings along roads, nights sheltered in makeshift tents, waiting for possible entry into port areas... However, the photographer is aware of the limitations of images, and adds words to them, just to be sure.

The Bangladeshi film industry based in Dhaka, and so known as “Dhallywood” has been going since 1956. Dhallywood movies have fallen out of favor among the richer classes, who prefer foreign films. The growing influence of Bollywood (Hindi cinema) films in Bangladesh has also had an adverse impact on the local industry. Yet the Dhallywood industry produces around 100 movies a year, and does still enjoy the support of many ordinary moviegoers.

Roger Frei - AEDES | LensCulture

Roger Frei searches for residential communities built on a large scale – in the truest sense of the word. He is searching for a “home” in a mass residential construction that is so often perceived as anonymous. He has focused his vision on the objects of so-called residential housing functionalism as well as specimens of contemporary Swiss architecture that are considered exemplary and classics of modernism. He systematically walks from floor to floor, photographs walls in hallways at regular intervals and puts all of the photos together digitally as collages, so that they coalesce into a serial composition.

Odd, Old Days in Times Square

Andrew Savulich’s photos of 1980s New York are quirky and off-kilter, like the city itself before it became a sanitized tourist mecca.

There was so much crime in New York back then that the white-haired man, Andrew Savulich, had his pick of numerous scenes of mayhem he could photograph. It was a more dangerous time to be a New Yorker, but a good time to be a spot news photographer
