The dismantling of the unique, world-famous Polaroid Collection | Camera Arts | Scoop.it

With this post I return, after a 10-month hiatus, to one of the two main stories that have preoccupied me here at Photocritic International since I inaugurated this blog in June 2009: the dismantling of the unique, world-famous Polaroid Collection, which I’ve tracked in more than two dozen posts (plus a number of Guest Posts by others) over the past two-and-a-half years.

A Treasure House of Photographs

You’ve already looked at the pictures, haven’t you?

Of course you have. Why would anyone come to Tumblr to read a long-winded introduction?

But as long as you’re here, let’s agree that these photographs give lie to the idea that The New York Times is not a picture newspaper. While it’s true that The Times didn’t always use photos to best advantage, it was in the game beginning in 1896, when it first published an illustrated Sunday magazine. By the time of the First World War, readers were seeing extraordinary images every week of the conflict ravaging Europe. Early in the 20th century, The Times even had its own picture agency, Wide World Photos.

RE:VOIR - The Film Gallery: DVD ROSE LOWDER - BOUQUET D'IMAGES

RE:VOIR - The Film Gallery: DVD ROSE LOWDER - BOUQUET D'IMAGES | Camera Arts | Scoop.it

For many years Rose Lowder has been developing an exceptional technique of weaving together images gathered frame- by-frame to form meticulous patterns of light. By oscillating the focal plane of photographs shot in the same place over time, her layered tapestries produce a new relationship between filmed reality and filmic image. From the movement of a waterwheel’s rotations, mirroring the camera mechanism, to a bouquet of flowers becoming a bouquet of images, her work demonstrates a unique means of expression unparalleled in the world of cinema.

Documentary: "Boston Under: After Hours"

Late each night, more than 100 MBTA workers prowl the tracks of the transit system to find damage and make repairs, ending their workday before most commuters begin theirs. “Boston Under: After Hours” follows the night crew through its shift, as workers deal with the challenges and dangers of the job, but the 44-minute film, available on YouTube, also surveys the history of the country’s first subway system and the safety issues that can arise at any time of day. A film by Peter Olejnik and Edward Peters.
