If the internet was a Hans Christian Anderson story, then Tumblr would be a beautiful, pubescent world of elf-like teenagers all worshipping Olivia Bee. I don’t know what you were doing when you were eleven years old, but Olivia was taking photos that a lot of photographers in their twenties couldn’t even take now – so much so that she’s grabbed the attention of, and has worked for, big dogs Nike and Converse. We caught up with the now 17-year-old queen of the super-young and incredibly-talented and asked her about her very enviable commissions, the importance of freedom, and what it’s like to be a photography sensation.

“It’s as true today as it ever was. He who seeks beauty, will find it,” the wise words of the two-wheeled-wonder that is Bill Cunningham. After watching the much-anticipated upcoming film Bill Cunningham New York I can tell you now it will be devoured by all fashion-addicts and photography buffs – or, really, anyone that has ever seen a photograph or worn clothes before. In a moving, and sensationally inspirational film we take a deeper look into the fast-paced, passion-enthused life of one of the most low-maintenance and well-loved men in New York.

Last week was quiet over here with no updates. Reason being that I was actually busy on assignments. For a change. One day gig to Wiltshire on Monday, and then a little road trip around Wales from Wednesday until Sunday. Pretty tired coming home last night, but will definitely not complain.  I’d love to have more weeks like the one just passed.. It has been looking promising after moving to London… Hope it stays that way…I have some good news in the bag to announce in a week or so, which I’m thrilled about…Trying to keep my big mouth shut for now…so let’s move on to today’s updates…

Five Magnum photographers are doing some road tripping of their own…

UPDATE Monday 21 March 12.25pm GMT… news just posted on The New York Times website… Libya Releases 4 Times Journalists http://nyti.ms/flAz1P Hurray!

—-

As I’m sure all of you know by now, Lynsey Addario and Tyler Hicks along with videographer Stephen Farrell, and NYT”s Beirut bureau chief Anthony Shadid went missing in Libya earlier this week (the news on NPPA / NYT ). The team were later reported to have been detained my Gaddafi’s security forces. On Friday, New York Times reported that that the Libyan government had promised to release the Times journalists. It has passed 6pm GMT on Saturday,when I’m writing this, and unfortunately it seems that the Libyans haven’t kept their word. I hope Addario, Hicks, Farrell, and Shadid will be released as soon as possible. My fear is that the coalition launched attacks on Libya have complicated the matter quite a bit…

Having browsed his site today, I noticed a link to this good piece on the Digital Journalist about him, from 2001…At the bottom of the page there’s nine videos with Morris, but unfortunately I didn’t manage to view them…maybe you have better luck…

Articles – Grazia Neri: The Battlefields of Christopher Morris (Digital Journalist: 2001)

More Libya…

Take another look at the photo on top of this post..I noticed that Yuri Kozyrev has a photo of the same scene  (see below) in his Libya gallery on TIME website …Taken almost the exact same moment…I think it’s Kozyrev’s legs behind Hicks… So his is like a photo within a photo (see them side by side here)…First thing that comes to mind is that both Conroy and Kozyrev have a lot of guts to continue taking photos in a situation that must have been rather threatening as Addario and Co are already running away from the scene…Another is that it seems like there were loads of photographers- well at least seven –  at this scene…As I mentioned regarding the Egypt turmoil, it’s not surprising photographers move in pacts in dangerous situations, but at the same it means that there’s a lot of overlap between their work, and the viewers  will not not get as comprehensive coverage of each conflict as they’d might first  imagine having looked at several photographers’ work.

Photo: Yuri Kozyrev

Another thing about Kozyrev’s photo and a lot of photos on TIME’s photo galleries for that matter…I’ve noticed they often seem to look really nice in terms of  what I call ‘punchiness’ ( good mix of contrast/saturation) and generally better processed than photographs on most other sites…To me that is evident even by comparing for instance the above Kozyrev frame with the top one by Conroy… I’ve often wondered if they have a person working on the files at the picture desk to give them a certain look… I wouldn’t be too surprised if it were so…Although this might of course be just a silly assumption of mine, and I really don’t know the inner workings of TIME’s picture desk, or any others’ for that matter, but do have a look for yourself, photos in their galleries do often seem to look really well – but not overly –  processed.
