Lost in Publications

Lost in Publications | Photography Now | Scoop.it

Rinko Kawauchi is exploring in her work the poetry of the commonplace. What makes her work special to me, is how she is sequencing and editing her pictures in the books. Most of the time you look at the pictures side by side, so there seems to be some kind of visual or underlying association between the two photos on the facing pages, which can create a total different layer. It’s fun to look for the connections between the pictures, but it can be sometimes near impossible to understand them.

Jorge Luis Borges, Central Park, NYC (by Diane Arbus, 1969) | Photography Now | Scoop.it

It seems a paradox worthy of the best stories of Jorge Luis Borges, that blind man’s best friend was… a keen amateur photographer; that the blind man who despised everything foreign and extremely perishable be portrayed by… an internationally renowned fashion photographer for Vogue magazine

Perpetuating the Visual Myth of Appalachia – Part One | Walk your camera.

Perpetuating the Visual Myth of Appalachia – Part One | Walk your camera. | Photography Now | Scoop.it

On 7 May 2012, CNN published a series by photographer Stacy Kranitz from her body of work entitled “Regression to the Mean.” The series, 16 images in all, caught my attention and raised a series of red flags. Admittedly, I’m hypersensitive when it comes to how Appalachia is, and has been, portrayed especially in mass media. So, before I was too quick to judge, I went to Kranitz’s Web site to see for myself just what all of this was about.
