Photojournalism's suicide - Thoughts of a Bohemian

Photojournalism's suicide - Thoughts of a Bohemian | Visual Culture and Communication | Scoop.it
Its not the photo part of journalism that is dying – there are some great images out there-, it is the journalism part. When was the last time you saw a story explained in photographs rather then lengthy text. Today’s photojournalism consists of reading a story in the news and covering it. It is not … Read More →

Mario Pires's curator insight, June 23, 1:17 AM

"I am not very worried about the overabundance of images in today’s society.  The vast majority of these photos are snapshots whose lifespan is very short – a few minutes or less. Like a mosquito.

They are shot, shown and almost immediately die, forgotten.

These photos resemble a conversation, rather than an actual process by which a visual archive is made. I am interested in creating a visual archive that is also a reflection of my own person, who I am in this age and time and the people and place I am photographing with the most honesty and depth that I can muster.

And that does not come from a snapshot. It requires a lot of time and immersion and connectivity."

The Work of Don McCullin

When I met Don McCullin at the weekend there was no sense of "been there done that" with him. Although he has shown his work all over the world, he was as proud of his work today as ever. An ordinary man, with an extraordinary talent for documenting history.

SA consultancy Anthropology launches, aims to create 'meaningful marketing' | ventureburn | Visual Culture and Communication | Scoop.it

“The name Anthropology is no coincidence, we want to make it our mission to constantly study and evaluate consumer data, interactions and trends. Meaningful marketing has to be born out of really understanding who you are speaking to and what makes them tick. The study of humankind… this is what we are all about,” states Maker

Mario Pires's curator insight, April 7, 2:38 AM

Sometimes I find myself thinking, ‘I don’t want to take this picture.’ It’s the sound of your moral and ethical being, which is ever changing. I love what I do, or at least can’t imagine doing anything else. But these days, every time I get all my equipment together to go, I wonder if it will be the last.” - Paolo Pellegrin

Jon C's curator insight, April 10, 7:06 PM

This does give that feel of a Dutch  artwork, where all the figures have been carefully place - except it is a photo of a meeting of war lord types in Afghanistan. Photojournalism is a complex art.
