The Winning Photos of the 2019 Sony World Photography Awards

Italian photographer Federico Borella was named Photographer of the Year (and the 1st place winner in Documentary) for his project Five Degrees, which focuses on male suicide in the farming community of Tamil Nadu, Southern India, which is experiencing its worst drought in 140 years. The series was praised by the competition’s jury for “its sensitivity, technical excellence and artistry in bringing to light a global concern.”

New book, Images in Transition, makes us question the notion of truth in photo journalism – Feature Shoot

David Pace got his first camera when he was just eight years old — a little plastic Kodak Brownie Hawkeye. Since then, he has displayed an exceptional ability to portray raw, lingering emotion through his photographs.

Remembering the Past, Remembering the Present – Witness

Two years ago I attended Through the Lens of History, an exhibition showing original prints of some of the iconic images of western photojournalism. It was an exhibition where pictures of Lenin lead to pictures from wars, revolution and protest. The horrors of the World War II are followed by images from Vietnam, Northern Ireland takes us to Tiananmen Square and the spectacle of the Twin Towers leads to more contemporary visions of the attacks on Iraq and Libya and the resulting migration crisis.

American Fraternity: An Illustrated Manual by Andrew Moisey | LENSCRATCH

When I first saw the book, American Fraternity, published by Daylight Books, I was intrigued by its beautiful old-fashioned, shiny leather cover. It looked like one of those books you find at your grandfather’s house, a precious object. Inside, I found black and white photos, printed on yellow pages, with images that are crude, and powerful, combined with excerpts of pledges, prayers and vows taken from an actual ritual fraternity manual that Andrew Moisey found on the ground after the fraternity was closed down.

World Press Photo disinvites photographer to industry awards – Columbia Journalism Review

Andrew Quilty’s photographs of the aftermath of a bombing in Kabul, some of which ran in The New York Times, won third place in the Spot News, Stories category. But the photojournalist was not in Amsterdam for the ceremony. After the foundation received reports of inappropriate behavior by Quilty, organizers told the photojournalist he was not welcome at the event, according to Lars Boering, managing director of the World Press Photo Foundation. The awards are the most prestigious in photojournalism, and the ceremony in Amsterdam and subsequent photo festival is a gathering of top industry figures. The foundation has not made public the number or nature of the accusations.

The Brazilian ad agency F/Nazca Saatchi & Saatchi just released another promo video called “Leica – The Hunt”:

Juxtapoz Magazine – Photography From The Fringe at House of Machines in LA

This weekend in Los Angeles, Iqvinder Singh has curated a group of photographers that capture life on the fringes, from gangs and cock fights to train hopping and trips to the desert, in an exhibition titled Outsiders Photography. The show is at House of Machines on the outer edges of LA’s Arts District. The show runs from 7-10pm, but honestly, who knows how late it’ll go…. check out the flyer and some of the work from the show below.

Certain uses of protected content by online services – Thoughts of a Bohemian

That’s it; it’s done. The European Directive on Copyright is passed, and along with it, the infamous “Article 13”, now Article 17 in the latest document. However, what will it mean for photo agencies and independent photographers?

A Final Review of the Leica Q: 3.5 Years in the Making – PhotoShelter Blog

I say this with partial irony as I’ve just upgraded to a Leica Q2 after having owned a Leica Q for 3.5 years. But my Leica Q is still an amazing camera, and given that there are many good deals on this camera to be found, I thought it would be a good time to re-review the camera after using it for 40 months and taking over 60,000 photos as it traveled with me to 19 countries.

50 Years After Altamont: The End of the 1960s – The New York Times

The concert was featured in the documentary film “Gimme Shelter,” and a few photojournalists captured the experience. Among them was Bill Owens, who would soon rise to photographic fame for his seminal early 1970s project “Suburbia,” which cheekily documented the rise of the suburbs in California.

EU Copyright Directive puts future of Google News in doubt – 9to5Google

The future of Google News in Europe is now in doubt as EU member states approved The EU Copyright Directive. The new law – which could see Google having to pay publishers to include brief snippets in search results – was previously passed by the European Parliament, but was subject to approval by individual countries.

Trey Ratcliff Wrote a Book Exposing How People Cheat at Instagram

Brands spent an estimated $2 billion on marketing through Instagram “influencers” in 2017, and that number is expected to balloon to $10 billion by 2020. The game has become so lucrative that many people are finding all kinds of ways to fake influence in order to reap the rewards. Popular photographer Trey Ratcliff has written a new book that exposes these “cunning tricks.”

Bruce Gilden Has Balls | Leicaphilia

I like Gilden. It takes a lot of balls to walk up to someone on the street and push a flash camera in their face. Does it take some special photographic talent? No. But that’s not the point. It takes a certain unified vision. The point is Gilden has created an aesthetic unique to him and hasn’t much deviated from it in 50 years. As such, he’s created a large, coherent body of work. I’ve heard people criticize his work, claiming it gimmicky and artless, something any 8th grader would be capable of. Could your kid have taken these pictures? Yes. But your kid didn’t, and Gilden did, just like it would have been within your kid’s skill set to have painted Jackson Pollock’s Alchemy, 1947. Your kid didn’t, because your kid would have never considered the aesthetic potential inherent in the medium. The genius of Pollock -and Gilden- is having seen the aesthetic others missed.

Jordan Gale: It Is What It Is | LENSCRATCH

In 2017, we featured the work of Jordan Gale as one of the Honorable Mention nods for the Lenscratch Student Award. I was moved by his work and it has stayed with me over the past two years. Jordan has an innate ability to tell stories, in particular his own–of family, poverty, and drug abuse. His insightful photographs and honest narration of what he has learned from who he was and where he came from is an amazing tribute to a young photographer. His images are dark, jittery, and truthful, perfectly capturing life on the edge.
