Leica Cameras Have Eye-Popping Prices, With Photos to Match

Leica Cameras Have Eye-Popping Prices, With Photos to Match | Documentary photography | Scoop.it
A complete digital setup from the German company can cost $20,000, but serious photographers find it worth the price.
Marc-André Pauzé's insight:

"Ridiculous? Perhaps. But the hard-core photographers who own a Leica swear by its craftsmanship, lens quality and lack of bells and whistles even as they acknowledge that their beloved camera gear is, well, not for everyone."


Yes you must have skills and knowledge of photography to play (and have fun) with it.

Reza: "L'âge d'or du photojournalisme ne fait que commencer"

Reza: "L'âge d'or du photojournalisme ne fait que commencer" | Documentary photography | Scoop.it
Avec l'avènement du téléphone-appareil photo et des réseaux sociaux de partage d'images, l'avenir du photojournalisme semble fragilisé.
Marc-André Pauzé's insight:

"Nous savons désormais que le fait que tout le monde ait son bic dans la poche n'a pas multiplié les Victor Hugo ou Balzac. 

 

C'est pareil pour les appareils photos d'aujourd'hui. Tout le monde peut appuyer sur un bouton et capter ce qu'il se passe, cela n'en fait pas plus de grands photographes ni de belles photos. Ce n'est pas l'outil qui fait l'artisan."

Une si pesante image

Une si pesante image | Documentary photography | Scoop.it
Ce que l'on croit voir... 6/6. Cette photo de Kevin Carter a fait le tour du monde. Elle a valu à son auteur de vives critiques et un Pulitzer en 1994. Trois mois après son prix, le photographe s'est suicidé.
Marc-André Pauzé's insight:
Shooting the messenger

An image taken by Kevin Carter. He said that the child was in a refugee camp. The novelty of this article is the investigation to prove that he survived.

 

The well thinking Western society was upset of the work of photographer (to exonerate) instead of taking offense to politicians who let a situation fester. This famine was primarily political, not environmental.

 

But Carter, a man weakened by the atrocities he witnessed (probably fragile to begin with) has committed suicide a few months later.

"there will always be photographers. Strangely enough, more and more are coming back to film. The pendulum is swinging back. There are photographers such as Eric Bouvet who has dropped his digital gear and gone back to a Graphiflex view camera with lenses dating from the Second World War. There are people like Philip Blenkinsop and Stanley Greene who refuse certain commissions because they want to be able to keep on working with celluloid, at their own pace. There are people who are not interested in instant news."

Canon Professional Network - Salgado's Genesis project

Canon Professional Network - Salgado's Genesis project | Documentary photography | Scoop.it
His name, a brand in itself, is on every list of the world’s most influential photographers.
Marc-André Pauzé's insight:

"Sebastião Salgado has been a towering figure in the world of ‘concerned photography’ for 40 years, and now Genesis, his last and arguably most ambitious body of work has been released to the world. The mammoth eight-year long project, photographed in 32 countries, is being exhibited at the Natural History Museum in London, England, until September 2013 and will open in Toronto, Rome and Rio de Janeiro in May 2013, with 30 museum shows planned in the coming years. In an exclusive interview, the legendary Brazilian photographer spoke to CPN writer Mike Stanton about what inspired him to take on such a huge endeavour."


Here you can have information on the North American Premiere of the exhibition, in Toronto.

All the Blog post from "The Mystery Journey" | Documentary photography | Scoop.it

For a few weeks, I have been wandering without giving any indication of the location where I was. Here's a few stories and photographs but no description of where I was. Together we will surely find something, meet men, women and places that may have something to tell us.

“I’m hungry for slowness and silence. To stop for kohl-lined eyes, a woman’s calf who reveals itself, a misty plain drowned by dreams. To eat a piece of bread and cheese, ass in the grass, nose to the wind. (…) Enough to see civilizations boxed and culture in greenhouse. My museum, are the roads, the men that take them, village squares, and soup, sitting with strangers.”

BRONDOLO JAMES's curator insight, June 22, 2013 6:51 AM

As Maitre I use only focal one fixed one 35mn / f2 digital technology for all my photos of street, it is the equivalent of one 50mn argentic. I pursue on this way that he(it) drew, not to copy him(it). But to photograph humbly with my sensibility. A sense(direction) of the observation sharpened is needed to stage the street.... Because every photo has to tell a story, and not serve the technique.
