    Paolo Pellegrin attacked… everybody. He took no responsibility for his own actions. He constructs straw-men to whack down while at the same time blaming everyone but himself. My way, end of controversy. Paolo’s way, fuel on the fire

    So, enough controversy for you this week? It’s been interesting watching the Pelligrin story evolve over the last couple of days, but as I sit here on Sunday evening I can’t help but think that it’s much ado about nothing

    what we’re concerned with at BagNews is not the integrity of a person but the integrity of the image and as well as the titles, captions and any other attendent information presented in the elaboration or justification of that imagery

  • Followup: Pellegrin Kerfuffle

    Link: The Online Photographer: Followup: Pellegrin Kerfuffle

    Yesterday, I linked to a BagNews post about the accuracy of an award-winning photo by Magnum’s Paolo Pellegrin. Since then, Paolo has responded (weakly, in my estimation) and a number of sites have leapt to his defense.

    Mr. Pellegrin was not asked for comment by the post’s authors, however. “I didn’t want to call Paolo,” she said. “I wanted to write this from the vantage point of raising a discussion.”

    I have no idea why Shaw et al. appear to think there is something wrong with making a portrait, or that making a portrait is not “authentic”. As photojournalists, we make portraits all the time.  Are my portraits from Gaza any less “authentic” because they’re portraits?  Of course not.  It’s ridiculous.

    Also from Paolo:

    Neither Shaw, Steinberg nor Keller ever attempted to contact me. They do not quote Brett, anyone in the Crescent, the police officers I spent so much time with, etc. It seems somewhat strange to me that while mounting a purported journalistic high horse they themselves did not follow the basic tenets of fair and professional journalism.

  • When Reality Isn’t Dramatic Enough: Misrepresentation in a World Press and Picture of the Year Winning Photo

    What happens when a World Press Photo and Picture of the Year International award-winning photograph doesn’t show what it purports to show? Not through a mistake of interpretation or subjective opinion, but when the facts show the photo wasn’t taken where it was claimed to be taken and when the subject of the photo isn’t who the photographer says he is. What happens when a city is represented through photographs bearing photographer-written descriptions almost wholly plagiarized from a 10 year old New York Times article?  Does it make it worse when the photos and the series in question, “The Crescent, Rochester USA 2012”, have won multiple awards and the photographer is Magnum’s Paolo Pellegrin?

    The Magnum photojournalist Paolo Pellegrin has documented many of this generation’s major conflicts and disasters, from wars to revolutions to tsunamis. “I am trying—as I do in all my work—to create a bridge,” he said in a recent interview. “To use photography to say something that goes beyond the surface, that vibrates, that resonates, that speaks about a form of psychological portraiture, if you will. To make a connection.”

  • A Postcard From Rochester


    Ten Magnum photographers will be working in Rochester. Two of these photographers have already gotten started. A couple weeks ago, Alessandra Sanguinetti and Jim Goldberg picked up Uncle Jackson in Oakland and began driving to Rochester. You can see some pictures from their trip here. On their way, Alessandra and Jim picked me up in Minnesota. Later today we’ll be joining Bruce Gilden, Susan Meiselas, Martin Parr, Paolo Pellegrin, Larry Towell, Alex Webb, and Donovan Wylie in Rochester. For two weeks we’ll be living together and working together.

  • Paolo Pellegrin’s Dies Irae

    photo-eye Book Reviews:

    “I happen to think of photography as a foreign language,” says Paolo Pellegrin. “The question isn’t how to take good photos, it’s how to take photographs that succeed to do a number of things simultaneously: to document, to transmit information, and to strike a chord emotionally.”

  • Postcards From America: Five Photographers, a Writer, Two Weeks and a Bus


    Magnum Photographers Alec Soth, Jim Goldberg, Susan Meiselas, Paolo Pellegrin, Mikhael Subotsky, and writer Ginger Strand are a bunch of friends going on a homespun adventure; a two week road trip, from May 11-26, across America. Rather than a super group on a stadium tour, the Postcards From America trip will be more in the spirit of a band going back to a small venue tour — a tour where they have to drive their own van and haul their own gear.

  • Paolo Pellegrin – Dies Irae


    Dies Irae is the first major retrospective exhibition dedicated to the work of Paolo Pellegrin. The show includes more than 150 images through which he tells us many of his stories and reportages. He has become a symbol of that authentic photojournalism (Magnum) that is not afraid of documenting the world by bravelesly staring at it in the eyes.

Through an exploration of the Present, he portrays his dreamlike vision of the future, involving in the course of pages a unique collection of landscapes from all over the planet – passing from the most condensed asian metropoles to Iceland, from an unseen Dubai to an oniric New York City, to Siberia – unconventional fashion series, ghost imaginary and a gallery of some of the key visionaries of our days – including the director Alejandro Jodorowsky, the fashion designer Vivienne Westwood, the architect Sir Norman Foster, the fashion designer Ms Stella McCartney, the Chairman John Elkington, the designer Mr Bruce Mau, among others.
