"Is it possible to get 11 photographers into a box and put them in a position where you could never place a photographer? Normally, it would be absolutely impossible. But nothing is impossible when it comes to the Olympic games." | by Fabrizio Bensch

"Why Social Media Matters to Photographers" | JMG-Galleries

"Why Social Media Matters to Photographers" | JMG-Galleries | Looks -Pictures, Images, Visual Languages | Scoop.it

 "[...] Most people think of Social Media (Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, etc.) as only a channel of chatter amplifying noise of millions of people or just a “fun” activity for those with too much idle time. Social Media in fact provides a means to reach a pinpoint audience in ways never before possible. As a photographer who has been sharing his work online since web browsers could first display images I’ve seen the Internet evolve both in good and bad ways.

"Photographs Not Taken" : what makes a photographer freeze ?

"Photographs Not Taken" : what makes a photographer freeze ? | Looks -Pictures, Images, Visual Languages | Scoop.it
  "[...] Consider the story related by Sylvia Plachy [a photographer] who, on a street in midtown Manhattan just after the twin towers of the World Trade Centre had collapsed on 9/11, encountered a dust-covered man "who had walked though hell". He was, says Plachy, "the icon" of the human tragedy. Many people took his photograph. She did not. "I would have had to step in front of him, interrupt his frantic pace," she writes.

Art's great nudes have gone skinny

Art's great nudes have gone skinny | Looks -Pictures, Images, Visual Languages | Scoop.it

 "Italian artist Anna Utopia Giordano has taken some of art's greatest nudes and reimagined what they would look like if their bodies conformed to 21st-century ideals of beauty... The results are revealing – and quite shocking in what they say about our modern attitudes to women's bodies."

 

Revealing, too : closely watch the women's bodies in the altered paintings... you'll see no matter the loss of weight/shapes, their breasts are intact. However, they're one of the first parts that change when women's bodies lose weight  -at least when not 'corrected' by plastic surgery :)  The painted models' bodies have been transformed while this femininity symbol remains intact... doesn't this still obey fashion's "Long legs/thin waist/gorgeous breasts" diktat, somehow ?
