It was simple curiosity that guided photographer Serge J-F. Levy to New York’s Green Haven Correctional Facility in 2002.
Remember the theme from the last article from Nat Geo that I curated? Ultimately, photos, nature or human alike, will ultimate influence our persception of ourselves, better understand of ppl around us. Such theme echos iin the current article "Finding God in Max Security Prison".
As the photographer, Serge J-F Levy said, "It was in quieter moments, however, when Levy said he saw the deeper power of religion in the lives of prisoners. “There's this sincere desire on the part of many inmates to try to understand the state of their soul,” Levy said. “They're trying to understand their predicament, and I think that spirituality in prison not so infrequently dovetails with a form of analysis or therapy. I think there's a sense of introspection and evaluation of one's life that happens within these religious environments, especially in one-on-ones with the chaplains. I didn't expect to see that, and it's fascinating.”

Nowadays, we have different photo devices like dslr, dc, p n s, and smart phone. We take photographing for granted. But you know what, there are places in the world that photographing never exists. This is a project to bring us to these remote areas and take photos for the locals. Amazing project.
Near to the New Year Eve, so please bear me to do something differently. This is a Polaroid Ad decades ago. It's attractive to me for several reasons: 1. The voice over reminds me the documentary long time ago. 2. It shows how to use the camera. 3. Untill now, I didn't realize Polaroid is a SLR. 4. It shows a number of decent Polaroid photos. Not just p & s. , but full of artistic creation. Now, I have the impulse to find one and take some Polaroid photos.

I really like the "Concert" and "City & Architecture" categories. The former shows the passion, engagement, and passion, etc. Let viewers' feel the concert atmosphere. The latter is full of color. The ways to show each city is unique as well.

No matter what the subjects are, nature or human, in the end, it all come back to ourselves. How do the photo impact our life, change the ways we see the world, etc. Totally agree with this main theme of photography.
How would time travel affect life as we know it? Capture the most important events in history, upload to instagram, twitter, facebook? If time travel did indeed become a reality, how would it affect our world as we currently experience it?

The video & audio let us know how the historical and iconic photo of earth rise was taken near Xmas Day (Dec 20) 45 years ago.
The official website of photographer Vivian Maier. Showcasing photo galleries, information about exhibitions, print sales, books and documentary film.
Vivian Maier was a street photographer and took tons of films. During her whole life, she has neither fame nor money. She worked as a nanny for living. At one point, she didn't have money to develop her films. Nobody knew her works. Accidentally, Vivian's works were discovered. Now, an org is maintaining a website and her works.
I like street photos, and Vivian's works are amazing.
