Alixandra Fazzina, who’s work I became familiar with only recently, seems to pop up everywhere at the moment… This frame used along a BJP article  on five photographers documenting various forms of immigration is really beautiful. Great majority of her work I’ve seen so far looks to me like it’s been shot in situations of very little natural light… in dim rooms, or outdoors very early mornings, late dusk or even middle of the night… It’s almost like she doesn’t photograph day time at all…Not a criticism… just something I noticed..I AM a fan…

Amanda Rivkin sent me this link to Tomas van Houtryve’s blog about finding new ways to fund projects…Makes me feel worried reading this type of stuff… If photographers like Van Houtryve are having trouble gaining funding, what chance does emerging photographer, like I, have?

I wish The New York Times would show more of their slideshows in the 800×535 pixels size like this one by Moises Saman, and not in the usual 600×400 pixels (see for instance the one by Eros Hoagland lower in the post)… So much better seeing the photographs bigger…

Book review of Little Brown Mushroom’s recent Trent Parke publication. This review’s slightly critical. I’m sure there are other opinions out there too. I can’t offer any personal opinion as I haven’t seen the book…
