There is the idea of the unspeakable, the idea that "what can be said at all can be said clearly, and what we cannot talk about we must pass over in silence" (Ludwig Wittgenstein).

Japanese photography legend Shomei Tomatsu dies - British Journal of Photography

Japanese photography legend Shomei Tomatsu dies - British Journal of Photography | Photography Now | Scoop.it

Shomei Tomatsu, one of the most influential Japanese photographers of his era, died on 14 December. He was 82.

Shomei Tomatsu, born on 16 January 1930 and whose work is currently on show at the Barbican in London as part of the exhibition Everything Was Moving: Photography for the 60s and 70s, is known for his iconic photograph of a melted bottle taken in Nagasaki in 1961, as part of a magazine assignment to portray the devastation and reconstruction of the city. But it's his non-documentary approach to photography, with his dream-like aesthetics, that made Tomatsu one of the most influential Japanese photographers of his time.

Why bother?! | Bill Fortney | Photography Now | Scoop.it

I was having an very interesting conversation with a photographer several days ago and something he said has continued to ring in my ears. He said, ” I see so much good work, I just wonder why bother, I will never be that good!”  I know how he feels, but I’ve got and answer to “why bother!”.

Exploring Motion Image Photography

Exploring Motion Image Photography | Photography Now | Scoop.it

It seems like technology updates and advances are almost an everyday occurrence these days with yet another new camera, tablet and phone model vying for our attention. It’s easy to glaze over whenever another tech announcement is made. Rarely do we see major shifts like we did with the release of the CD, DVD and iPhone. For the independent film makers and videographers of this world, nothing shook up the status quo quite like the release of Canon’s 5Dm2 camera in October of 2008.

Mario Pires's insight:

The video capture near future for still images is comming.

Thoughts of a Bohemian » Blog Archive » Social media my friend

Here’s the deal: Photography is all about sharing and social media is all about sharing. In fact , social media is all about sharing photography. So why is it that the extreme majority of those who take pictures for a living cannot make a living with social media ? After all, if there was a tool ever invented for them, it is definitely social media. It is to image distribution what photoshop is to image editing.

The reason ? Conservatism.

Bill Burke: Mine Fields | Album, Magazin für Fotografie

Bill Burke: Mine Fields | Album, Magazin für Fotografie | Photography Now | Scoop.it

This is a trip into the unknown, much like the film Apocalypse Now who’s images fill the inside end sheets. Burke goes into the heart of darkness, examining the war’s effect on Cambodia and also delving into the disintegration of his own marriage at the same time as his journey. A haunting wander into dark territories, marked with bad history.

Probably. I would imagine all still photos will soon come from HD video frames which might actually bring back immediacy. As of now, photographers are painting their photos and painters are painting their painting their photos. The documentary photo fixit still exists is merely a stepping stone to another story.
Mario Pires's comment, January 8, 2013 7:20 AM
We perceive reality very differently than in the the 50's and back. We probably see more pictures everyday than people in the 40's saw in years, there is no going back. Authors will use the imagery they find fit for the story they wish to tell.

Marie Baronnet : The living art of Risqué | Photography Now | Scoop.it

Looking for some old performers, I ended meeting some show girls. The way they looked down on strippers got me quickly intrigued and interested. Outcasts are my kind, they try harder. From strip joints to Burlesque theaters, I went on a quest and met the “Legends”, these dominating characters of the quintessential American art of strip tease.

INTERVIEW: Sally Mann – “The Touch of an Angel” (2010) « ASX | AMERICAN SUBURB X | Photography & Culture | Photography Now | Scoop.it

Jiang Rong: Looking at the five major bodies of work you have published so far, there is an underlying continuum among them. What was the original impulse that led you to use photography rather than writing as a medium to express yourself?

Sally Mann: I wish I could be a better writer, but writing is so difficult. I get seduced by visual aesthetics. Because I just like making beautiful pictures, sometimes I wander away from making a clear statement. As for my original impulse, I don’t know exactly. Now that I have been working for about forty years, I can see that there is a consistent set of interests in all my work. But even half way through, I wasn’t sure what it was.
