Bruce Gilden Takes Street Photos Like You've Never Seen Before

Whether they're of Haitian hurricane survivors or Yakuza gang members.

I wouldn’t call it challenging, but a little annoying. In Paris, you’ll always have one person who comes over and gives you the, “Why’d you take the picture, why’d you take the picture?” Sometimes we’ve had cops come over. And this isn't going to a war  or working where people are doing heroin on the streets – which I’ve already seen – or dealing with lowlifes, I’m just talking about ordinary people here. Parisians tend to be a little “intellectual” and it becomes a whole exercise for them, so it gets me a little flustered. What I mean by "flustered" is that I don’t have much respect for it. I just say, "Okay, get a cop." I’m not going to get into a whole dialogue because, for me, I don’t agree with their premise. I do agree that you could ask me why I took a photo, but it depends how you ask me. You don’t treat me as a piece of shit; I’m not going to take it. You have to have a tough skin to be a street photographer.

Tickled by America's Quirky Coincidences

Joshua Yospyn, a Washington-based photographer, has a knack for capturing the gleefully odd juxtapositions of America’s weird cultural and political landscape.

That project, “American Sequitur,” is a series of gleefully odd juxtapositions. It’s a photo set whose sequencing is essential to the humor, and understanding, of the series.

In the five years Baghdad was my home, I got to work (or just hang out) with some of the finest news photographers in the world: Yuri Kozyrev, Franco Pagetti, Kate Brooks, James Nachtwey, Robert Nicklesberg, Lynsey Addario, the late Chris Hondros… the list is as long as it is distinguished. Their immense talent and incredible bravery combined to make the Iraq war arguably the most exhaustively photographed conflict in human history. This selection doesn’t begin to capture the immensity of their collective achievement, but it is evocative of the horrors — and just occasionally, hope — they were able to chronicle.

2013 – the year we lost sight of what photography can achieve

This year’s announcement of the winners of two major competitions for photojournalists, World Press Photo and Pictures of the Year International, created more than the usual fire storm. Raking through the ashes, Graham Harrison looks for a way forward, and reveals how one major grants programme for photojournalists had no restrictions on image manipulation at all.

In the Shadows of Wolves and Man

The Norwegian photographer Christian Houge’s project “Shadow Within” takes a close look at wolves, which he says can teach humans a lot about the instincts and impulses surpressed by culture.

“They say you don’t start living until you step out of your comfort zone,” the photographer Christian Houge said. “Art arises when you let go. It can be in the process, in the darkroom. But it can also be in the concept. The end product is about not having control.”

Freelance sports photographer Brad Mangin has many claims to fame: one, according to him, is being the last photographer on earth to get an iPhone. While that claim may be hard to prove, another will be substantiated when Instant Baseball is published this April. The book chronicles the 2012 Major League Baseball season with images shot on Mangin’s iPhone and posted to the image sharing Web site Instagram. It may be the first non-self published book comprised entirely of Instagram images shot on an iPhone.

 I sat there after the first half with Alabama up several touchdowns up on Notre Dame and ate a terrible hot dog in a media room where all the photographers just looked depressed.  All of the excitement, the adrenaline, and preparedness was sucked right out of everyone.  No hopes of a comeback.  There were just a lot of shocked Notre Dame faces and chants of “Roll Tide!”  Over.  And over.  And over

Alex Webb: Rendering a Complex World, in Color and Black-and-White

For the Magnum photographer Alex Webb, how a picture turns out isn’t always up to him.

For someone who says 99 percent of street photography is about failure, Alex Webb has had a notably successful career. From his early work in Haiti and along the United States-Mexico border, to recent projects in the United States Rust Belt, Mr. Webb, a member of Magnum Photos, had produced a deep archive of images rich in color and complexity. James Estrin recently discussed with him how his work has evolved over the last four decades

2012: The Year in Pictures

Colum McCann reflects on the images — disturbing, inspired and absurd — that shaped our collective consciousness this year.

Here are 20 unforgettable moments I experienced as a photographer for The Salt Lake Tribune in 2012.

Snapshots from a secret state: Panoramic pictures of North Koreans at work and play give an extraordinary glimpse of everyday life

Award-winning photographer David Guttenfelder, has made a dozen trips into North Korea since 2000, trying to capture the country as accurately as possible for outsiders.

"For this project, I used a Hasselblad XPAN, a panoramic-view film camera that is no longer manufactured. Throughout the year, I wore it around my neck and shot several dozen rolls of color negative film in between my normal coverage of news and daily life with my AP-issued digital cameras. The XPAN is quiet, discrete, manual and simple. Because it has a wide panoramic format, it literally gives me a different view of North Korea. The film also reflects how I feel when I'm in North Korea, wandering among the muted or gritty colors, and the fashions and styles that often seem to come from a past generation. "

Overexposed: A Photographer's War With PTSD

"One of the truly great things about war ... is that all you have to do is survive."

"'I don't think you can go into the most traumatic situations that arise on earth, voluntarily, and come back unchanged,' said Ashley Gilbertson, who admits that his experience in Iraq is never far from thought. Eight years after Gilbertson and Dexter Filkins climbed those steps, those perilous moments on the step have followed Gilbertson. 'A 22-year-old kid was killed because Ashley needed a photograph,' Filkins said. 'He's tormented by that.'"
