  • Conversations about Photobooks: Lesley Martin

    Link: Aperture has long been a – maybe the – beacon of American photobook publishing.

  • Elisabeth Biondi In Conversation with Adriana Teresa, FotoVisura

    Link: Categorizing photography is controversial. For example, the category of ‘photojournalism’, in my opinion, is an exceedingly narrow definition. It traditionally demanded that photography be defined as close to events as they unfolded avoiding interpretation. When I started working with GEO in the 70’s, it meant something extremely narrow and factual, and today we might,…

  • INTERVIEW: Bruce Davidson Interviewed for ASX – “What you call a ….., I call my home.” (2011)

    Link: If you look through my total number of my photographic work, you’ll see that a lot of it is intimate. I call it “outside to the inside”. I don’t photograph stories, my photographs take on a mood, and have a cumulative effect, but there isn’t a beginning a middle and an end. It’s not…

  • Success Stories: Harvey Stein

    Link: I never imagined that going to Coney Island in 1970 to photograph, at the suggestion of my teacher at the time, Ben Fernandez, would ever result in going back for 40 years to shoot there. I’d call anyone either crazy or a genius for doing anything photographic that long. And I know I’m not…

  • How a Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer captured emotional, physical wounds from gang violence

    Link: The most authentic photographs tell untold stories, and they capture intimacy, depth and compassion.

  • Severin Koller: Revealing the Truth in Unforgettable Images

    Link: I don’t think I’m looking for certain things. It is more the other way around, that something grabs my attention. There are times when my senses are totally focused on what’s going on around me, like someone just put me on a drug that intensifies everything. When I’m in that mode, many photos happen instinctively.…
