¿Qué salvarías de una inundación? // What would you save in a flood? (by Martin Parr)

¿Qué salvarías de una inundación? // What would you save in a flood? (by Martin Parr) | Photography Now | Scoop.it

The photographer Martin Parr has teamed up with Oxfam to take portraits of celebrities with the one item they would save if their home were flooded.

The series of shots follow a trip Martin Parr took with Oxfam in 2009 to flood-hit Quang Tri province in Vietnam. Here he photographed people who were struggling to cope with increasingly unpredictable flooding owing to climate change. Parr asked them to pose with the possession they battled to save when their homes were unexpectedly hit.

SHAUN FENN in Conversation with Photographer JOAO CANZIANI | Photography Now | Scoop.it

T his post marks the launch of a new column on POP featuring photographers interviewing other photographers. I was challenged by photographer Mathieu Young to find a way to curate content.

Joao agreed and I’m very happy to share the first photographer-photographer interview on POP. Thank you to Shaun and Joao for their passion, generosity of spirit and all their time on such an inspiring interview.

Mary Ellen Mark documents an American rite of passage found in the annual ‘Prom’

Mary Ellen Mark documents an American rite of passage found in the annual ‘Prom’ | Photography Now | Scoop.it

The Prom is ‘an American ritual, it's a rite of passage, and it's very much a part of this country,’ remarks documentary photographer Mary Ellen Mark; who between 2006 and 2009, visited twelve schools across the United States (including her alma mater Cheltenham High School, in Wyncote, Pennsylvania), that embraced regional and socio-economic class differences; and the Sloan-Kettering Cancer Centre in New York City — which holds a prom every year in its paediatric ward — producing a collection of 127 exquisite and richly detailed large-format black-and-white portraits with the massive Polaroid 20x24 Land Camera, which she had previously used for her 2003 project Twins (Aperture, 2004).

Best photography books of 2012

Best photography books of 2012 | Photography Now | Scoop.it

The trend for big and expensive limited-edition retrospectives continued apace with Bruce Davidson's Black & White and William Eggleston's Los Alamos Revisited (both Steidl, £220 each). Phaidon also weighed in this year with the even more expensive Joel Meyerowitz boxed set, Taking My Time, which costs £500 but at least comes with a signed print of one of his street photographs from the 1960s. A good investment if you can afford it, but you may need to move fast as only 1,500 have been printed.

The New Flesh: Our Avatars

The New Flesh: Our Avatars | Photography Now | Scoop.it

Culturally defining moments are happening exclusively through mediated images dispersed through multiple sources, indefinitely available, detached in time from their sources. They are regurgitated in various forms upon release so that they become a hybrid of event and iteration. Whether it be the fall of the Berlin Wall, the police beating of Rodney King and subsequent LA riots, the O.J. Simpson trial, the Branch Davidians’ standoff in Waco, 9/11, or countless others, all of these events were dispersed to millions of people as televised media.

KEIZO KITAJIMA: “USSR 1991″ (2012) « ASX | AMERICAN SUBURB X | Photography & Culture

KEIZO KITAJIMA: “USSR 1991″ (2012) « ASX | AMERICAN SUBURB X | Photography & Culture | Photography Now | Scoop.it

In the fall of 1990, Keizo Kitajima received a commission from Japan’s Asahi Shimbun newspaper to visit the Soviet Union, the opportunity to spend a year documenting both people and places in what was then a monolithic entity. 15 republics, 11 time zones, and thousands of miles spanning the two—the task was daunting in the very least. Having spent several years based in West Berlin, the Iron Curtain was a looming presence and Kitajima had often contemplated turning his lens towards the Soviet regime although the difficulties associated therein—censorship, freedom of access, and overwhelming bureaucracy—seemed insurmountable.

Michael Kenna does not seek to describe the landscape in his breathtaking images, but emphasise through the art of suggestion | Photography Now | Scoop.it

‘I prefer suggestion over description,’ the influential British landscape photographer Michael Kenna once remarked, and who within an increasingly fast paced and chaotic world is interested in revealing places imbued with peace in his serene works; which are routed in a European tradition, and as such reveal a connection to the likes of Eugene Atget (1857-1927), Bill Brandt (1904-1983) and Josef Sudek (1896-1976).
