Egypt, Cairo, Tahrir….

Moises Saman has been kicking ass with his Cairo work…NYT front page pics on several occasions during the last two weeks…This is the slideshow a lot of people were talking about over the weekend…

Moises Saman: Cairo Undone (NYT) Cairo Undone on Magnum site.

Saman hit the front page also today (November 29) with an image  (to-me maybe not so obvious choice) seen below, which can be found online in the NYT’s Egypt Turmoil slideshow…featuring work by various photographers.

photo: Moises Saman

Below image ran on the front page of the International Herald Tribune last week….You can see it in black and white in this Saman’s tweet…The colour version is up on Magnum Photos site…

Occupy Wall Street…

Christopher Anderson: OWS (New York Magazine)

Noticed that Ashley Gilbertson’s OWS series shot in October had sadly disappeared from VII site, but the reason turned out to be that New Yorker had put him on assignment (here’s a pic of him working)…I’m sure the series will reappear on VII in the future, but for now we can enjoy an edit on Photo Booth…good news: it includes new frames, such as the below one,  shot this month…

Ashley Gilbertson: Occupy Wall Street (Photo Booth)

VII Photo is going through some changes… British Journal of Photography’s news editor Olivier Laurent is keeping us up-to-date with news as they come in…So far, BJP has confirmed Stefano de Luigi will be full member, whereas VII Mentor Agnes Dherbeys has left VII to be an independent photographer. At the moment, Olivier has unconfirmed  list of photographers who have been offered  full membership with the agency and I’d imagine we’ll get the confirmations very soon…

BJP: VII Photo in transition (BJP: September 2011)

Stephen Mayes did imply in his comments that not everyone has been accepted, but it it would seen most of the Network photographers, such as Lynsey Addario, Ashley Gilbertson and Tomas van Houtryve,  have been made full members…No word on the future status of previous Network photographers Gafic, Kurzen, Domaniczky, Bouvet, or Bruce at the moment, or any of the VII Mentor photographers apart from Dherbeys…I’d imagine a lot of the Mentor photographers staying in that category, as it was only Network that’s gets disbanded…I have word that no new Mentor photographers were taken in at this time.

I can confirm that Anastasia Taylor-Lind, despite not being included in the BJP’s ‘unconfirmed list’ at time of writing this, has been offered full membership. Until now she was part of VII Mentor.

I was skyping with Anastasia earlier today, and asked about her initial reaction:

After 2 years on the VII mentor program under the guidance of Ron Haviv, I am utterly delighted and honored to become part of VII Photo. The mentor program is a wonderful and successful idea, and something I am really proud to have been part of. I’m excited about my future at VII and being part of an exceptional group of photographers, who are in turn supported by wonderful agency staff.”

Congratulations! Well deserved.  You can find Anastasia’s website here and blog with recent tear sheets here.

Features and Essays – Joachim Ladefoged: The Royal Kiss (TIME LB: April 2011)

Martin Parr continues his love-affair with cakes in his Royal Wedding coverage…He seems to have had two assignments for the day, as both TIME and Guardian have his work up on their websites… Not bad, if you can get such gigs for one shoot! Neither of the two slideshows share any shots exactly the same, but there are several of same scenes…three comparisons below.. Guardian shots on the left, TIME Lightbox on the right…I don’t know if it’s just me, but I thought it was surprising that the slideshows do not share a single frame since it’s basically the same shoot/assignment…It’s almost like both clients were promised certain images exclusively…Otherwise I would have expected Parr to make a strongest possible edit and file that to both…Obviously picture editors at TIME and Guardian have chosen their faves for their slideshows, but I doubt very much that if they were doing their selection from the same original Parr edit, that there wouldn’t be overlap…I’m just curious, why would anybody file two frames almost exactly the same (the cakes in the middle below) instead of just one…unless of course you file tons or have promised a certain kind of exclusivity…Although, my thinking is flawed in the sense that it’s difficult to see much exclusivity in having certain frames, if there are other around elsewhere very much like it…who knows…I don’t…Just wondering…

I hope he remembered not to charge the expenses twice;)
