  1. Russia's Vivian Maier?

    Tim, Thank you for that link. It's the first time that I have seen so many uncensored photographs of Russia taken at that time. I agree with you and I too hope that more of these photographs come to the surface. Not a Vivian Maier, but who could be, just glad that Masha Ivashintsova took these at a time, when as you say, there was comparatively little photography going on. A great link Tim. Mick

  6. http://www.amivitale.com/about-ami/ https://amivitale.photoshelter.com/archive In the beginning, photography was my passport to meeting people, learning, and experiencing new cultures. Now it is more than just a passport. It’s a tool for creating awareness and understanding across cultures, communities, and countries; a tool to make sense of our commonalities in the world we share. Nikon Ambassador and National Geographic magazine photographer Ami Vitale has traveled to more than 90 countries, bearing witness not only to violence and conflict, but also to surreal beauty and the enduring power of the human spirit. Throughout the years, Ami has lived in mud huts and war zones, contracted malaria, and donned a panda suit— keeping true to her belief in the importance of “living the story.” In 2009, after shooting a powerful story on the transport and release of one the world’s last white rhinos, Ami shifted her focus to today’s most compelling wildlife and environmental stories. Her photographs have been commissioned by nearly every international publication and exhibited around the world in museums and galleries. Recently, she joined Ripple Effect Images, an organization of renowned female scientists, writers, photographers and filmmakers working together to create powerful and persuasive stories that shed light on the hardships women in developing countries face and the programs that can help them. She is also on the Photojournalism Advisory Council for the Alexia Foundation. Currently based in Montana, Ami Vitale is a contract photographer with National Geographic magazine and frequently gives workshops throughout the Americas, Europe and Asia. She can be reached at ami@amivitale.com.

  9. https://fujilove.com/2018-fujilove-photography-book?mc_cid=a76940ad46&mc_eid=8ebae41fd9 Last year was truly a wonderful time for FujiLove. Our community has been constantly growing and the amount of wonderful photographs being shared in the FujiLove Readers Group was just astonishing. It was not an easy task to choose the photographs for our 2018 FujiLove Photography Book, but in the end we hope we have come up with a selection that will be a joy to look at. It is a blessing to experience each of us seeing the world with her or his own eyes, in a completely different way. That’s what photography is all about. I am more than happy to share this 2018 selection of some of the best FujiLove members images with you. I would like to also personally thank Alien Skin Software, makers of the excellent RAW editing software application Exposure X3, for their support while producing this book. I hope you will enjoy it. Yours truly, Tomash

  11. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z54tXFEJNTg I was always nervous about street photography because I had this idea that true street photography was shooting people up close, and it would inevitably lead you to get yourself into conflict situations. However, I think over the past couple of years I've found a style of street photography which suits my personality better. On this recent trip to Rome I took the time to make this video sharing my philosophy when shooting on the street, in the hope that it helps you to broaden your own definition, and give you the courage to head out and shoot your take on the streets where you live.

  12. Gas Stop - David Freund

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=shm3dp01EhA '"Everybody in America goes to a gas station two or three times a month for their entire life. Everybody's got a mental thing about the gas station, their own narrative of the gas station." From 1978 to 1981, David Freund explored and photographed the culture, architecture and landscape of gas stations in more than 40 states. Hear how David produced this book from the first photograph to the final book release.

  15. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/in-pictures-43141667 A recently discovered photo collection by the late photographer David Granick reveals London's East End in colour, including streets in Stepney, Whitechapel and Spitalfields. Local photographer Chris Dorley-Brown found the pictures when he was invited to review thousands of Granick's colour slides in early 2017. The discovery led to the release of the book The East End In Colour, 1960-1980, published by Hoxton Mini Press.
