    The Photo Issue: The Real Americana

    These images capture a joy, pride and love of a country that speak to the true American spirit.

    via Washington Post: https://www.washingtonpost.com/magazine/interactive/2022/robin-givhan-american-flag-race-photography/

    In Andre Wagner’s single image of a Black child gripping a small, wrinkled American flag in one hand while the other rests pensively on her chin, Wagner tells the complicated story of America. That Star-Spangled Banner is crumpled, as if it has been rolled up in a pocket, tucked away, its usefulness uncertain but nonetheless protected. This child, with the decorative beads in her cornrows, is dwarfed by the adults who stand on either side, by the enormous backpack, by the meat counter in the background. Her expression is sober, as if she’s considering weighty matters. A child with the brooding demeanor of an adult. A complicated child. An American child. A Black American.

  • Opinion | To Be Hungry in the Middle of the Pandemic – The New York Times

    In the best of times, life in New York City can be unforgiving. It was hard enough, working full tilt, to cover rent, child care and food before the pandemic. Now, in the neighborhoods most devastated by the coronavirus, life has become more precarious. And the most elemental human need — food — has become a pressing, urgent concern.

    Yunghi Kim often pretended she wasn’t taking photographs when she started documenting Sunset Park’s Chinatown. She got in the habit of shooting from the hip rather than raising the camera to her eye in the bustling, if camera-shy, Brooklyn neighborhood.

    Coney Island’s boardwalk is far from the minds of most New Yorkers during this brutally cold February. But the photojournalist Yunghi Kim ventured to the end of the Q train this winter to see how the seagulls, the Cyclone, the Polar Bear Club, and the local residents were faring during the snowy off-season.

  • Revisiting Life and Death in Africa

    Revisiting Life and Death in Africa

    Yunghi Kim does not regret going to Rwanda 20 years ago, documenting the genocide and resulting refugee crisis. Hundreds of thousands perished while much of the world did nothing, which makes her angry to this day. It also makes her feel guilty that while she was able to return to her middle-class life, her pictures failed to ease the Rwandans’ plight.

  • Editing Pictures, Influencing Photographers

    Yesterday and today on Lens, photographers pay tribute to the photo editors who most influenced their careers. As Yunghi Kim and Kenneth Jarecke wrote in yesterday’s introduction, these editors are “the people who pushed, pulled and occasionally strong-armed them into producing exceptional work. The people who believed in them when nobody else did — who recognized the photographer’s strength and took the time to develop it.”

    Remember, infringers don’t set the price of your work. You do! My settlements range from 1,000 to 3,000 euros plus legal fees for a single unlicensed image used for editorial purposes.

  • Heroes of Photography

    (Thanks to A Photo A Day for pointing this out to me.) From American Photo, “a tribute to ten photographers who inspire us”: Not one of the photographers featured on the following pages wanted to be called a hero. We sympathize: The word is immodest and certainly overused these days. Nonetheless, we can’t help but consider them heroic, and when you read their stories, we think you’ll understand why. The photographers are: Phil Borges, John Dugdale, Timothy Fadek, Stanley Greene, Chris Hondros, Yunghi Kim, Joseph Rodriguez, Fazal Sheikh, Brent Stirton, Hazel Thomspon The photo above is from Stanley Greene. His book on Chechnya, Open Wound, sits on my bookshelf. It’s too powerful to go through in one sitting. Links: American Photo’s Heroes of Photography A Photo A Day
