Features and Essays

I love 15th of every month as the following month’s National Geographic features hit their feature hub… Two good photojournalism pieces in the October issue…which I’m very much hoping to receive in the mail…We became annual subscribers for the first time…Time mag too… Buying single copies ends up getting rather costly…

Terrific photos by Kitra Cahana…Subject: “Moody. Impulsive. Maddening. Why do teenagers act the way they do? “…

Kitra Cahana: Teenage Brains (NGM: October 2011) Cahana’s website

Mark Leong: Ulanbaatar, Mongolia (NGM: September 2011)

If you enjoyed Leong’s essay, do also see Timothy Fadek’s Mongolia work…done last year, but definitely worth having a look, if you aren’t familiar with it…

George Georgiou : Photographer (IdeasTap: September 2011)

“I invest myself emotionally in the people I photograph – not just to gain their trust but also to make myself feel comfortable. I’m not a quick, brash photographer – I was encouraged at Newport to understand compassion and humility and understanding, and that’s something I’ve tried to adhere to. “- Ivor Prickett

Ivor Prickett : Photojournalist (IdeasTap: September 2011)

“Realistically, unless you’re an individual like Ryan McGinley, it’s going to take 10 years to establish yourself: five years to pay the rent and five years to hone your practice. But the beauty about photography is, if you make it work for you, you never have to retire” – David Birkett

On April 5, 2011, South African freelance photographer Anton Hammerl disappeared while covering the revolution in eastern Libya. For weeks his family, and the world, held out hope that he was alive, believing he had been captured by the Gaddafi regime. Then on May 19, Hammerl’s family discovered through eyewitness accounts that he could not have survived injuries he sustained while photographing a battle between rebels and Libyan soldiers.

Unai Aranzadi

Anton Hammerl at work in Brega, Libya.

Last week, a fundraising website, Friends of Anton, was launched in an effort to raise money for Hammerl’s family. Renowned photographers, including João Silva, David Burnett, Kenneth Jarecke, Bruno Stevens, Yunghi Kim, and Todd Heisler, have donated prints in support of their fallen colleague. The photographs can be purchased through the Friends of Anton website.

Hammerl, 41, a former picture editor and photographer for The Saturday Star in Johannesburg, South Africa, is survived by his wife Penny and their three children: Aurora, 11; Neo, 7; and 6-month-old Hiro.

Back from Perpignan and another great visit to Visa Pour l’Image… obviously a lot of  fun was had and it did hurt a bit looking at my bank balance this morning …but it was also a productive week or so in terms of showing work and meeting editors….and educational having sat through several photographers’ talks…Chris Morris and Gary Knight to mention just a couple…But if there are two words that really sum up Visa Pour l’Image 2011 for me, they are exhaustion and inspiration…Those were at least the two things on top of my mind landing back in London Monday evening… the late nights, early rises, and eventful days certainly took their toll…but you also get very inspired attending the evening screenings at Campo Santo or La Republique, looking at the exhibitions at places like Couvent de Minimes, showing and getting feedback for your work at Palais de Congress, or just talking shop with fellow photographers and other industry types over dinners in some of the many very fine restaurants or over drink at the famous La Poste…or just plain fooling around

photo: Barbara Davidson

My festival highlights in terms of looking at work were exhibition of Barbara Davidson’s Pulitzer winning work Caught in the Crossfire about innocent victims of LA gang warfare…and seeing Canon AFJ 2011 recipient Ilvy Njiokiktjien present a very well put-together multimedia version of her award winning series at the Canon stage…hope the video will be online soon somewhere, I’d love to be able to share it…

Before we look at the latest features, take a moment for this…

It was unfortunate there was no tribute to Anton during Visa evening screenings as there were for Lucas Dolega, Chris Hondros, and Tim Hetherington,  apparently because Hammerl’s photos had not been released for free due to a misunderstanding (this according to BJP’s Olivier Laurent) …

‘This Is What I Do. This Is All That I Know.” – Joao Silva

Part of NYT Lens’ Visa coverage…Joao Silva had a show of his Afghanistan work…

Joao Silva (NYT Lens: August 2011)

My favourite frame of Silva’s exhibition made me think of  other  photos I’ve seen of the B52 trails in the Afghan skies…photos which kind of seem to sum up and symbolise for me the long term foreign influence in the country…Of course the US and its allies have been in Afghanistan for 10 years with tens of thousands of boots on the ground…but when you think longer term…How will the last ten years of fight against the Taliban be seen in 20 years… 30 years… or 50 years? With US and its allies planning to reduce their presence in the country, will this most most recent war in Afghanistan be seen just as ‘a 10 years-or-so long in-and-out bomber round’? What has really been achieved?

Below Silva’s frame side-by-side Anderson’s, Knight’s, and Boulat’s…

I’ve had the pleasure to announce some new supporters for my blog during the last two weeks, and very happy to announce yet another one…Photo Raw magazine…check out the right-hand side bar…Photo Raw is a  quarterly magazine dedicated to the best photojournalism and documentary photography out there…published in Finland but printed in English…I think PJ Links and Photo Raw make a great match.  Their new issue will be out first week of June with features by Paolo Pellegrin, Anastasia Taylor-Lind, Natan Dvir et al….

This week’s round-up…

I forgot to post links last week to these two great essays from National Geographic Magazine’s June issue…

Stephanie Sinclair has continued her project on child brides…

Greg Girard: Can China Go Green ? (NGM: June 2011) No other country is investing so heavily in clean energy. But no other country burns as much coal to fuel its economy.

Stephanie Sinclair also has some work in the New York Times Magazine this week… Living on the Europe side of the pond,  I’ve never actually held NYT Mag in my hand, but I saw a place in Soho the other day, where they stock Sunday’s NYT.. Think I’m gonna go and pick up a copy…Always so great photography in there…

NYT Lens blog featured Espen Rasmussen’s book In Transit. One of the pictures from the book is the below frame of a Rohingya fisherman in Bangladesh…I remember reading an interview with Rasmussen in BJP last year, when he still had the Rohingya pictures converted in black and white and mentioned he might convert them back to colour…

From BJP… “He shot thousands of digital images, editing them down to a story of just 32 shots, then converting them to black-and-white and adding text and captions.”[ …} Rasmussen often writes his own stories and, although he also enjoys working with journalists, says it’s his favourite approach. After all, he points out, the most important thing is the story, and he’s in a good position to tell it both in images and words. “I let people talk and show their daily struggle through interviews and pictures,” he says. “I don’t search for the obvious drama, I try to describe daily life.” In fact, he’s considering turning the images back into colour, concerned that the sheer beauty of the monochrome versions detracts from the Rohingya’s plight.”.

Looks like he has done…See comparison here.

Interviews

Must read Bryan Denton interview on Lens blog…

“To me, having training and gear is a responsibility we have to our families and friends who worry about us, our colleagues who work beside us and can benefit from our know-how if they’re wounded, and to the readers who are informed by the images we take and will cease to be if we get taken out of the game. There’s never any guarantee that that stuff will save you, but we owe it to those who love us, support our work and each other to take every precaution we can.” – Bryan Denton
