Capturing a war crime - and the pressures on front line photographers

Capturing a war crime - and the pressures on front line photographers | Visual Culture and Communication | Scoop.it

“As Yugoslavia crumbled in the early 1990s, photographer Ron Haviv secretly took a picture of a Serb paramilitary soldier kicking a prone Bosnian Muslim civilian. The image became a symbol of outrage, but when the paramilitary leader — the feared Arkan — found out, he promised to drink Haviv’s blood. Ron Haviv shares that experience with Dr. Anthony Feinstein, a world leader on the psychological effects of war on frontline journalists”

Book Review: Stephen Shore: Uncommon Places – The Complete Works

Book Review: Stephen Shore: Uncommon Places – The Complete Works | Visual Culture and Communication | Scoop.it
If you are stuck for photographic inspiration and feeling a bit frustrated that you don’t live in the middle of some amazing national park, then you should definitely check out this new ‘complete works’ collection of the work of Stephen Shore. Shore, born 1947, is a US photographer best known for his ‘vernacular’ American photography, which means he eschewed the dramatic canyons and peaks of somebody like Ansel Adams and instead focussed on gas stations, business parks and other subjects...

"Lance Weiler explores how technology is transforming the art of storytelling."

Kajsa Hartig's curator insight, January 26, 3:08 PM

'Together storytellers, game developers, makers, creative technologists and experience designers will experiment with new forms and functions of storytelling. '

Vivalist's curator insight, January 26, 4:50 PM

Columbia joins the MIT and Duke University in the search for 21st century storytelling. It is interdisciplinary, that's one thing.

 

There are probably a lot of other academic programs in other universities as well. It's exciting to see interdisciplinary programs such as Duke' GreaterThanGames initiative give birth to awesome projects.
