My own personal photography hero: Jez Aznar | Photography Now | Scoop.it
Look at Jez’s work; understand a little bit about the part of the world he works in, the dangers, the complete lack of rewards for his work, and then you’ll understand why he’s my hero. Nothing we’ve done at duckrabbit comes close.

The accessible and relaxed writing style of Bill Jay

The accessible and relaxed writing style of Bill Jay | Photography Now | Scoop.it

Boring,’ exclaimed the Magnum photographer David Hurn as he looked through a box of prints by the young photographer Bill Jay (1940-2009). ‘Lots of others can do this sort of stuff better than you, photographers are ten a penny. But there's no one around who can write on photography... organise exhibitions… do all the things you can. So if you want a place in photography, you should start doing this.’ This honest remark by his friend, would mark the beginning of British born Jay’s career as a writer and historian of photography.

Conscientious | Review (of sorts): Looking for Love, 1996 by Alec Soth

Conscientious | Review (of sorts): Looking for Love, 1996 by Alec Soth | Photography Now | Scoop.it

Alec Soth’s Looking for Love, 1996 is not the artist’s first book dealing with love. Before, there was Niagara. There were also all the references in Sleeping by the Mississippi. Compared to those two earlier books, this new one is different, in a variety of ways. For a start, its images were photographed before Soth became one of today’s most well-known photographers.

‘I think of a photograph as a receiver of sensations. Sensations are intangible. I try to organise them though the act of photography.’ Tom Wood

‘I think of a photograph as a receiver of sensations. Sensations are intangible. I try to organise them though the act of photography.’ Tom Wood | Photography Now | Scoop.it

Over the past four decades the Irish born and self-taught photographer Tom Wood has quietly and continually recorded the daily lives of the people of Liverpool and it’s surrounds; and in the process produced three books, Looking for Love (Cornerhouse, 1989), All Zones Off Peak (Dewi Lewis, 1998) and Photie Man, (Steidl, 2005).

Tao of Photography: Why the heck is he taking a picture of that?

Tao of Photography: Why the heck is he taking a picture of that? | Photography Now | Scoop.it

A while back, I blogged about a series of images I call "Photographing the Photographer" diptychs (or PPDs), consisting of two side-by-side images: one image - taken by my wife - is of yours truly happily snapping away with my camera, oblivious to everything except what is in front of the tripod; the other, is of the "final print" of whatever it was that caught my attention at that instant.

A Photographer’s Account of Bal Thackeray’s Funeral

A Photographer’s Account of Bal Thackeray’s Funeral | Photography Now | Scoop.it

"The crowds were filing in now, small men casting long shadows that reminded me of Vincent Laforet’s aerial photographs of skaters in New York City. I shot some photos on my phone, instagrammed and tweeted those. In a few minutes they went viral. My caption for one picture was ‘This is Not Tahrir Square’, the sarcasm was missed but the photo was widely retweeted."

The Image: Octavio López Jiménez, "Sala de Tia Lidia" | Photography Now | Scoop.it

In this series, I explore how I see my hometown, a small community of 1700 residents in the valley of Oaxaca.
