  • Nat Geo’s Editor-in-Chief Answers Her 7 Most-Asked Photography Questions
    Today, when everyone has a camera with them 24/7 (their phones), anyone can get lucky and make one great picture. We are looking for those photographers who can really craft a story: develop a unique idea, engage in the research, make compelling images, and build a powerful narrative across a series of photographs. We have core niches – among them, wildlife and the natural environment, archaeology, science, people, and cultures – and are always looking for photographers who are interested in these topics. But at its core, you do have to be able to take amazing photographs!
  • A Conversation with Karolina Gembara | Conscientious Photography Magazine
    KG: It’s called APP [Archiwum Protestów Publicznych — Archive of Public Protest]. This is Rafał Milach’s idea (my friend from Sputnik Photos).

  • The Curious Society Wants to Print a New Photojournalism Magazine – PhotoShelter Blog

    The Curious Society Wants to Print a New Photojournalism Magazine
    A few weeks ago, veteran photojournalist Kenneth Jarecke announced the creation of The Curious Society, a membership-based, quarterly print publication for contemporary photojournalism. While some might reflexively balk at starting a printed magazine in the digital age, Jarecke believes there is a market for people who want a tactile experience, and one that forces them to more slowly appreciate photography – and if he’s right, he’ll also be paying photographers a meaningful licensing fee in return.

  • Juxtapoz Magazine – The Locusts: A Conversation With Jesse Lenz
    When photographer and publisher Jesse Lenz first settled down on a farm in rural Ohio with his family he was forced to reimagine long-held beliefs about process, practice, art, and life. After several years of living and traveling North American in an airstream, he discovered a different sort of movement and change. As his children’s imaginations ran wild in the fields, finding and creating worlds amongst and alongside plants, insects, and animals, Lenz’s own eyes opened to a whole new way of seeing the world around him. Remaining in one place in no way necessitates being static (something many of us has been forced to reconcile with this year), and in fact can reveal to us what we’ve long forgotten. With his first major monograph, The Locusts, Lenz finds that the magic of childhood is the perfect vehicle with which to understand change, whether it’s seasonal cycles of birth and death or the natural imperfections of simply being alive in this world.

  • B: Q & A with Ed Templeton
    SO, that leads to the answer. I think I am drawn to anything that is interesting to me, mostly people and how they present themselves and act. I trust my eye and sensibilities as I walk around to guide me. I probably err on the side of being a tad cynical. I like shooting people most. I think that is the hardest kind of photo to take, so I enjoy the rush of getting close and seeing and and trying to compose and capture a little slice of reality that can transcend the moment and tell a story on its own. Although I’m sure many of mine do not succeed on that level, and of course they are open to varying interpretations, that’s the idea.

  • Photographers on Photographers: Macaulay Lerman in conversation with Paul Guilmoth | LENSCRATCH
    At first glance the photograph is a medium of great limitation. The primary function of the camera is to describe the surface of an enclosed scene. Yet, for perhaps ineffable reasons, certain imagery surpasses it’s technical purpose, instead conjuring sensations that span the senses and inspiring curiosity as to what lies beyond the frame. The work of New England based artist Paul Guilmoth does just that. Through the use of flash and black and white film, Guilmoth presents the viewer with a nocturnal realm equally obscure as it is ordinary
