Let’s start with the unexpected news coming from Getty Images: Eugene Richards, the celebrated documentary photographer, has left the Reportage agency. Richards used to be with Magnum Photos but left twice. He was also with VII Photo for a couple of years, and had joined Reportage in 2010.

Check this Enrico Bossan interview… Enrico is a great guy… I got to know him in quite a funny way… Sometime last summer I received a Skype contact request from someone called Enrico Bossan, with whose work I was not familiar, but I accepted…Enrico gave me call later on the day..He wanted to get in touch to congratulate me for having some of my work published in L’Espresso… I was gobsmacked..I said I didn’t know I had any work published in the magazine.. Enrico was baffled.. He went back to the newsagents’ and came back with a copy of the magazine… It turned out he had confused Andy Spyra‘s work to mine….Needless to say I was teeny weeny bit disappointed that I hadn’t had work in the mag myself, but I’m glad Enrico made the mistake. Otherwise I might have not got to talk with him…We’ve had a couple of rather long chats online since, and I’ve learned a lot from him, especially regarding editing..

It has been a very rare occasion for me to write to photographers just to let them know I really like their work… Not a rare occasion because I wouldn’t admire a lot of photographers’ work…of course I do, but because getting in touch just to let people know that has always felt tad awkward, like I’m trying to kiss people’s ass.. Well, I did write somebody once, not too long ago… and that photographer was NYT staffer Damon Winter…and he even took the time to send a short reply despite being on assignment in Afghanistan, which was very thoughtful of him…well, Winter is the latest photographer featured on 500Photographers blog…
