Daily Life in Maine, as Photographed by Robert F. Bukaty – The Atlantic

Robert F. Bukaty has been working as a photographer for the Associated Press since 1993, and was a member of the AP team that won the 1999 Pulitzer Prize for its coverage of President Clinton’s impeachment. However, Bukaty’s many photographs of everyday life in the state of Maine, where he is based, are a constant source of joy and wonder. The images are beautifully made portraits of Maine’s people, its landscape, its wildlife, and, of course, its ever-changing seasons. Gathered here, moving from spring to winter, is a collection of some of his Maine photography from the past few years.

There’s Less to Portraits Than Meets the Eye, and More – The New York Times

Portraiture existed long before photography was invented. And for more than a dozen years after photography’s invention, it was practically impossible to make a photographic portrait: the required exposure times were too long. But the two eventually came together, and now their pairing seems so natural that it’s as though photography was invented for making portraits.

30-year-old images show how little has changed in the plight of immigrants at the U.S.-Mexico border – The Washington Post

In the early 1980s, I began traveling to the U.S.-Mexico border to take make photographs for my book “To the Promised Land.” I wanted to tell the story of people desperate to reach America. Although my own immigrant family had no visual record of our journey from Eastern Europe in the late 19th century, I’d always found inspiration in the photographer Lewis Hine, whose work in the early 1900s capturing Ellis Island and images of child labor that had stunned a nation with scenes meant to be hidden — breaker boys in the coal fields, doffer girls in America’s spinning mills, newsies, oyster shuckers. People who just wanted to support themselves and their families, not unlike those trying to cross the border all those years later. I was proud of the work I’d done — and then I focused on other subjects of social concern, the mainstay of my work.

Photographers on Photographers: Emily Hamilton Laux on Richard Rothman | LENSCRATCH

I met Richard Rothman about four years ago, in a class he taught at the International Center of Photography on large format photography. His teaching, both the technical and cerebral aspects, deeply influenced the way I think about making pictures. After memorizing the zone system’s tricky math, and sitting for hours loading film in blacked-out closets, I realized I could push myself more technically. Richard’s class, especially the discussions of iconic 20th century work, helped me to become more deeply conscious about creating images that express my ideas while paying closer attention to formal considerations.
