The photo workshop continues. We are all having so much fun roaming the streets of Paris for miles every day. Spending a week with people who share the same passion for photography is so awesome. I don’t shoot much when I teach a workshop but I grab a shot here and there with my little Fuji x100s whenever the opportunity arises. Do you have any favorites in the series below?

The 8 Worst Habits of Beginning Photographers

The 8 Worst Habits of Beginning Photographers | Photographie & Culture | Scoop.it
A habit is something one does regularly without thinking. There are good habits, such as looking both ways before crossing a street, more or less benign habits, such as biting the ends of pencils, and bad habits, such as being persistently late. Photographers fall prey to all sorts of bad habits, and becoming aware of [...]

We Recommend: Bored Couples from Martin Parr

We Recommend: Bored Couples from Martin Parr | Photographie & Culture | Scoop.it

Martin Parr, british contemporary photographer, is one of the most influent  photographers today. The “banality, boredom and lack of meaning” in modern times and daily life is what his work portraits. Bored Couples was taken in 1990´s in Europe. You can find his criticism to banal society with a little sense of humor in his work.

"Bored Couples" from Martin Parr is a fantastic exercise in hypocrisy and irony. It's easy to understand why some members of Magnum were against his membership.

Anne Duncan's curator insight, April 4, 2014 6:14 AM

I remember seeing couples showing an air of boredom.  Now it's couple both staring and their phones and texting or playing games... different image... no change in boredom levels  as far as I can see!

Financements et organisation, le combat des festivals photo régionaux

Financements et organisation, le combat des festivals photo régionaux | Photographie & Culture | Scoop.it

D’ici le mois d’avril, la saison des festivals photo va commencer. Pour beaucoup, la stabilité d’un tel évènement est un véritable défi. En France il y a plus d’une centaine de festivals photo régionaux, chacun avec ses problématiques et ses enjeux. Our Age is Thirteen a rencontré les organisateurs des festivals de Sète et de Vendôme qui ont accepté de nous parler de leurs financements et des moyens qu’ils développent pour perdurer.

Les icônes du photojournalisme, ou la narration visuelle inavouable | L'Atelier des icônes

Les icônes du photojournalisme, ou la narration visuelle inavouable | L'Atelier des icônes | Photographie & Culture | Scoop.it

"Images sacrées d’une société laïque1", les icônes du photojournalisme sont, selon les chercheurs en communication Robert Hariman et John Louis Lucaites, des emblèmes qui s’imposent d’eux-mêmes à l’esprit du temps. Couronnement d’une tradition qui ne retient de la photographie de presse que ses succès les plus glorieux, l’ouvrage No Caption Needed (“Pas besoin de légende”) confirme la représentation selon laquelle l’image médiatique serait une nouvelle peinture d’histoire – mais une peinture spontanée, paradoxale, miraculeuse, dont on se borne à constater les effets.

QUESTION | Un photographe doit-il avoir un style ? (1/2)

QUESTION | Un photographe doit-il avoir un style ? (1/2) | Photographie & Culture | Scoop.it
Rien n’est plus facile que d’appuyer sur un bouton pour prendre une photo. Mais qu’est-ce qui distingue alors le pur amateur du photographe aguerri ?

Mario Pires's curator insight, June 18, 2014 4:28 AM

"Soyons maintenant plus précis : qu’est-ce qui définit le style d’un artiste ? Pour un peintre classique, c’est ce qu’on appellera le trait ou la touche, la palette de couleurs utilisées, certaines façons de représenter les corps ou les visages, certaines poses, compositions, certaines lumières utilisées, et bien sûr, certains types de sujets. Pour résumer : des éléments liés aux moyens techniques utilisés pour représenter, et des choix de sujets récurrents, homogènes ou entre lesquels on puisse établir des liens. Comment transposer cela à la photographie ? C’est assez simple."

Kathputli colony | Serge Bouvet, photographe reporter

Kathputli colony | Serge Bouvet, photographe reporter | Photographie & Culture | Scoop.it

Planners have decreed that the famed Kathputli Colony in India's capital, New Delhi, is to make way for luxury flats and shops 

The roads that lead to it are unpaved, dirty and narrow. The houses are rudimentary and sparse. The meandering alleys, slippery and narrow, are almost a hazard to navigate with an overbearing smell of sewage and wood smoke.

Located in the western part of India’s capital, New Delhi, this slum is known as the Kathputli (or puppeteers’) Colony — though it isn’t just puppeteers who live here. With its origins in a simple encampment for roving and mostly Rajasthani performers, this 50-year-old community today comprises some 3,500 families. They are magicians, snake charmers, acrobats, singers, dancers, actors, traditional healers and musicians as well as puppeteers, and make up what it probably the largest congregation of street performers in the world. Musical instruments — for sale or repair — line the alleys, and a simple chat can turn into a magic show. Days reverberate with song and music, and many houses are crammed with huge puppets and other props.

The local authorities have plans for Kathputli Colony, however.

“Our policy is to give slum dwellers and their children better living conditions, and that’s what we are doing,” says S.K. Jain, director of the Delhi Development Authority (DDA), the civic body that owns the land where Kathputli Colony stands.

 

So, come April 1, this unique community will disappear to make way for luxury flats and a mall. The residents will be shifted to a nearby transit camp for two years and finally to a new high-rise building, which, the government claims, will be a modern artistes community with facilities to nurture and showcase street art.

 

The residents are skeptical. “How are we going to store our equipment in a cramped flat?” asks Puran Bhat, the oldest resident of the Kathputli Colony and a puppeteer, pointing at the 10-to-15-ft.-high puppets lined up against the wall of his room and spilling over onto a small terrace. “And we have big families.” (In Bhat’s case, there are 18 of them.)

“Our art dictates our lifestyle and our lifestyle is our identity; the lifestyle of a multistory building is not for us,” says Aziz Khan, a magician who made Guinness World Records for his great Indian rope trick in 1995.

Almost everyone in the Kathputli Colony shares these feelings, and many have asked that the community be redeveloped in situ, as a tourist attraction. But the DDA has other plans. “Middle-class India looks upon us as a nuisance, at odds with the image of India as a rising world power,” says Ishamuddin Khan, a street magician whose rope illusion was once ranked among the 50 greatest magic tricks in the world.

 

Meanwhile, Bhat, in his home, works on the script of a play that the residents are planning to perform on the streets of Delhi to protest the demolition of Kathputli Colony. “We perform for the poor as well as the rich, for the Prime Minister as well as the commoner,” Bhat says. “And we have always lived like kings without worrying about the future.”

That freedom, unfortunately, is a luxury that the residents of Kathputli Colony no longer have.

Risking life for school | Photojournalist: Beawiharta

Risking life for school | Photojournalist: Beawiharta | Photographie & Culture | Scoop.it

I went to Jakarta’s business district to find photos of middle-class workers returning to their homes. When I had finished, I realized that I had something different to shoot for the next day. I searched Google maps to find the location of the collapsed bridge but I couldn’t find the exact location. There was a blank map with only the name of the village, Sanghiang Tanjung. Surprisingly, it said the village was just 130 kms (80 miles) away from our Jakarta office – a travel time of about two hours. My estimation was it would take 4 hours.

 

3am Thursday morning, my friend and driver Soewarno and I headed to the village. We reached by 6am. But the difficulty was this village was just a blank area on the map. Also, we had to find the right direction that the students would take, so that I could take a pictures from the front, not from the back. We found many roads in the village but no one knew where the bridge was. With the help of my friends, we were able to get the name of the head of the village, Epi Sopian, who accompanied us to the location. Edi said the bridge collapsed during Saturday’s big flood when wood and bamboo hit the suspension bridge’s pillar.

 

I arrived at the location as the students were crossing. They were already in the middle of the bridge. Oh no, these could not be the children who wanted to go to school, I thought! It was more like an acrobatic show the collapsed bridge as an apparatus and without any safety device at all. They walked slowly, sometimes screaming as their shoes slipped. Suddenly the rain came. A last group of students, Sofiah and her friend, were on the bridge. Happily, all the students crossed safely. I took pictures for no more than five minutes. (...)
