Entretien - Diaporama avec Steve McCurry

marcpauze's insight:

"Finalement, je n’ai jamais été si passionné que ça par la couleur.J’aime les couleurs parce que le monde est en couleur. Mais la vie est bien plus intéressante que la couleur. (...) Les gens ont toujours eu la possibilité d’écrire un article, une nouvelle ou un roman. Et depuis l’avènement d’Internet, ils ont désormais la possibilité de publier leur travail. Mais seuls quelques écrivains ont le don de nous émouvoir. En photo, il y a aussi peu de photographes qui ont cette vision ou cet œil si particulier. Une poignée d’entre eux, ceux qui ont un don ou un talent, parvient à susciter de l’émotion." 


- Steve McCurry

Robert Capa: Finding a Fearless Photographer's Voice | Explore & document the World | Scoop.it
In a newly surfaced recording, Mr. Capa describes photographing under Fascist fire and other perils, like hiding in a bathroom to read a New York Times review panning his book.
marcpauze's insight:

"It is the only known recording of Mr. Capa’s voice, and until its discovery earlier this year by Brian Wallis, the chief curator of the International Center of Photography, there was no way to know what Mr. Capa sounded like, unless one knew him 60 years ago."

PhotoReporter Festival - 13 Photojournalists Test a New Business Model | LensCulture | Explore & document the World | Scoop.it
A privately funded festival in France commissioned 13 great photojournalists to create in-depth stories — encouraging long-form storytelling and trying to find a sustainable business model to support it...
marcpauze's insight:

"A community of large and small private businesses all contributed to the cause, with the idea of creating a photojournalism festival that would attract attention to their region, and their businesses, and also give them all an opportunity to work together in collaboration. This is the second year for this model, and it seems to be a success, at least on this small scale of funding 13 important photojournalism projects"

War Photographers in Afghanistan: The Images That Moved Them Most | LightBox | TIME.com

War Photographers in Afghanistan: The Images That Moved Them Most | LightBox | TIME.com | Explore & document the World | Scoop.it
On the 12th anniversary of the start of the war in Afghanistan, TIME asks 40 renowned photographers to reflect on their harrowing experiences covering the conflict—and to describe which of their own photographs moved them most.
marcpauze's insight:

"We were on a night mission and these American soldiers went door to door pulling men from their beds in front of their screaming children, putting them on the ground in the freezing cold, then marching them off under arrest. Maybe some of the men were insurgents, you almost never know when you're out there. But they were all released the next morning. As we hiked back to base around 5 a.m., the First Sergeant was sort of thinking out loud. 'Boy, we sure didn't make any friends out there tonight,' he said." - Michael Kamber

Ilakaka, Dangerous Saphirre - Images | Marc-Andre Pauze | Explore & document the World | Scoop.it
Along RN7, the most visited road, in the south of Madagascar, there is a town where few tourist ever stop except for taking the "Taxi-Brousse" (local transportation).
marcpauze's insight:

This report was done in 2006. Since then, things didn’t improve. After the political turmoil in 2008 and the global economic crash, mining activities went down as many strangers left and mining sites were abandoned. Sexual exploitation of children were still a problem in 2008, as reported in the «Tribune de Madagascar». Gangsterism were reported at the beginning of 2013, as many parts of the town were without electricity for months, due to a private company that offered a «very bad service for high cost», resulting in public protest. In 2011, a man named Philippe Ressigeac emailed me to express his disagreement with my story, stating that he was part of a guiding operator that organized visits in the mines. He also stated that he had not seen children and women working in mines and there was no security problems. Although he admited not having red my report and not having looked at the photo essay, he was saying that the story was false and was giving his business a bad press. When asked for facts about improvement in children labor, poverty and sexual exploitation, he could not answer. I never heard of him again.

marcpauze's insight:

Are the media outlet that don't want to send assigned reporters to war and prefer buying from freelancers AFTER they come back, irresponsables and exploitives ?


"Mr. Oghana, 28, has covered war zones (Iraq, Libya, Lebanon, Syria, Palestine and Afghanistan) for outlets including The New York TimesThe Economist and Time since 2009. But this past year, he began noticing a change.

Rather than committing to assignments as they had in the past, his editors began responding to his pitches by offering to take what he gets when he returns."

Photography as Advocacy: Origins of a Journey – PROOF

Photography as Advocacy: Origins of a Journey – PROOF | Explore & document the World | Scoop.it
marcpauze's insight:

"Sometimes you can pinpoint the exact moment when you decide to change the rest of your life. For photographer Marcus Bleasdale, it happened one London morning in 1998 when he walked into the office where he was working as an investment banker. “Even at that point, I had long known I wouldn’t stay in banking, but that day there was just this trigger,” he recalled. “I didn’t even sit down, and I walked into my boss’s office and resigned.”


Not long afterward, Marcus first arrived in the Democratic Republic of the Congo with an idea to retrace the river as Joseph Conrad might have seen it as he penned Heart of Darkness. The images he made then were the first of what became a living body of work that would span the next 13 years."

marcpauze's insight:
"We have to accept and evolve this technique which can move away from the format of printed press, which is under the dictatorship of editorial and political agendas and bring the media to the people in an informative, engaging, transparent way and above all maintain the integrity of the story being presented. In this way we can move away from the concerns about individual egos, and discussions about aesthetics of the imagery and bring forward a whole network of information through the witnessing and deciphering of information for the public to be understanding the broad spectrum of issues that form the whole story for public awareness.
