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…

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

Steve McCurry :  memories of 9/11 (Phaidon: September 2011)

Interesting thing I noticed the other day looking at some of McCurry’s 9/11 photos on his blog was that he has a frame almost exactly like one of Nachtwey’s… The two men must have stood pretty much side-by-side…The colours are different, but I presume it’s because Nachtwey was shooting C-41 and McCurry E-6…It’s fascinating how similarly the two photographers framed the scene…

July’s first instalment of Photojournalism Links….Getting a bit sloppy..It’s Monday already again… Oh well…

First off… BJP reports that Iranian press photographer Maryam Majd is still being detained in the Evin prison for her work on women’s rights… ‘Photojournalists appeal for Iranian photographer’s release’

Afghanistan…

Gratiane de Moustier: Afghanistan in Transition (Reportage by Getty Images: June 2011)

Basetrack’s Photostream on Flickr

Gary Knight: Living with HIV (Burma) (VII: July 2011)

Really couldn’t enjoy viewing the below Dominic Nahr’s slideshow on the Magnum Emergency Fund website, but to no fault of the photographer…Either it’s my connection or bad website design..Every photo ‘loads’ separately and half of the time I was staring ‘a loading wheel’ going from 1% to 100% before seeing each of the images… Annoying..Hope it works better for you..

Just saw Christopher Morris’ photos from Pope John Paul’s beatification in Rome last month…Some frames made me think of Paolo Pellegrin’s photos of people morning the pope’s death six years ago…Almost like a bookend to Pellegrin’s series…whether it’s just because both are of Pope John Paul and in black and white, I don’t know…Have a look side by side.

Morris’ has a video of this as well, but apparently it cannot be shown before music license has been sorted out…Looking forward to seeing it as I’m a big fan of his Dear Leader and the two Obama short films…
