Mario Pires's curator insight, April 7, 5:38 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, 10:06 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.

Data Visualization: Modern Approaches | Smashing Magazine

Data Visualization: Modern Approaches | Smashing Magazine | Visual Culture and Communication | Scoop.it
Data presentation can be beautiful, elegant and descriptive. There is a variety of conventional ways to visualize data - tables, histograms, pie charts and bar graphs are being used every day, in every project and on every possible occasion. However, to convey a message to your readers effectively, sometimes you need more than just a simple pie chart of your results. In fact, there are much better, profound, creative and absolutely fascinating ways to visualize data. Many of them might become ubiquitous in the next few years. So what can we expect? Which innovative ideas are already being used? And what are the most creative approaches to present data in ways we've never thought before? Let's take a look at the most interesting modern approaches to data visualization as well as related articles, resources and tools.

What Do You Want to Know?

What Do You Want to Know? | Visual Culture and Communication | Scoop.it

It’s a sad truism that one of the few reliable ways to make money in photography seems to be to extract it from other photographers, who are often willing to pay for any professional leg up in what is a painfully competitive field. Exorbitantly expensive portfolio reviews, competitions and workshops are all examples of this tendency, and while I have no problem with any of these services being offered for a reasonable fee, the amounts that are charged often seem really difficult to justify.
