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.

E.J. BELLOCQ: “‘Bellocq Epoque’ – Nan Goldin on Photographer E.J. Bellocq” (1997)

E.J. BELLOCQ: “‘Bellocq Epoque’ – Nan Goldin on Photographer E.J. Bellocq” (1997) | Photography Now | Scoop.it

Late one Berlin night in 1991, a famous German fashion photographer invited me and two friends to join him for a trip to Bel Ami, his favorite brothel in the Grunewald. The presence of a woman as a customer created a ripple of surprise, but the photographer, being a regular and popular visitor, put them at ease.
