WEEGEE: “Mass Hysteria” (1998) | Photography Now | Scoop.it

Paparazzi are notoriously ruthless characters who trade in visual exposure and derision. In the photographs taken by Weegee for the New York tabloids of ca. 1935-45, those paparazzo effects of sensationalism and impudence are crossed with laughter, which destabilizes everything.

Review: Redwood Saw by Richard Rothman

Review: Redwood Saw by Richard Rothman | Photography Now | Scoop.it
A good photobook acts very much like a vortex. It sucks you in, twirling you around, mis- and then re-orienting you, leaving you dizzy, a bit bewildered, and excited (A bad photobook just sucks). Richard Rothman's Redwood Saw is such a vortex.

Colin Pantall's blog: Art that sells is the destructive 1% | Photography Now | Scoop.it

“I was wondering if art galleries, blogs, and magazines will soon only be filled with socially outgoing, marketing driven artists that also enter competitions?”
