Mainstream Economics Has Become a Celebration of the Wealthy Rentier Class - Evonomics

Mainstream Economics Has Become a Celebration of the Wealthy Rentier Class - Evonomics | Visual Culture and Communication | Scoop.it
Economic statistics show fairly worldwide trends in inequality. After peaking in the 1920s, the reforms of the Great Depression helped make income distribution more equitable and stable until 1980.[1] Then, in the wake of Thatcherism in Britain and Reaganomics in the United States, inequality really took off. And it took off largely by the financial sector (especially as interest rates retreated from their high of 20 percent in 1980, creating the greatest bond market boom in history). Real estate and industry were financialized, that is, debt leveraged.

Post-processing with Intent by Rafael Rojas - Topaz Labs Blog

Post-processing with Intent by Rafael Rojas - Topaz Labs Blog | Visual Culture and Communication | Scoop.it
Introduction It is very tempting to think that post-processing in photography is something disconnected from the rest of the photographic process, and particularly so from the capture of images in the field. The truth, however, is that post-processing should not be considered a separate step in photography, but rather as the continuation, or should we… Continue Reading

The Cash Cow of Photography - Disphotic

I’ve been working for a while on compiling a list of photography grants, competitions and festivals that don’t charge or only charge small amounts for submissions.

Mario Pires's curator insight, September 16, 2015 10:24 AM

"I’ve also come to question more and more those situations where photographers are essentially expected to pay for access, or to pay someone to do their job. Portfolio reviews seem to me the most obvious and troubling example of this, a situation where we pay to jump the queue and go and see an editor or a curator who might be able to help us with work. In participating in this we are, in effect, paying a premium just to talk to a person whose job it already is to look at photography."

Sander de Wilde's curator insight, September 18, 2015 3:18 AM

Exactly what I feel all the time. It's already damned difficult to find all these grants, and competitions, find the time to enter, and now you also have to find the money to enter. Even known sites like lensculture etc. Only photographers with time and money can make an entry and win. Is that fair? I don't know a lot of photographers with any of these!-)
