I am very curious to see this book… I will not get it because of HUGE price (I found the cheapest one on amazon for 100 dolars)… but I wish to see it.. maybe next time I am in London (maybe next year) I will be able to check it out… until that time I can check only a few images from it and this video…

evening (almost) without internet

Yesterday evening after watching interview with Stanley Greene -> check Vogue website I spent some time checking his two photography books I have. One is Black Passport (where you can find that Metallica photo from this post) and other one is Open Wound (book with photo of the tank)… those photographs are just perfect…and so honest…

and interview… it’s really worth to check…

Annie Leibovitz – Life Through a Lens

Photographer Annie Leibovitz has produced some of the most memorable and iconic images of the last 30 years, from her work with Rolling Stone magazine through to her Hollywood cover portraits at Vanity Fair. She has also recorded the horrors of war in Rwanda and Sarajevo and taken intimate shots her own friends and family, including Susan Sontag. This documentary, directed by her sister, is a fascinating portrait of a great talent, featuring vintage footage of Leibovitz in action during the 1960s and contributions from Arnold Schwarzenegger, Hillary Clinton, Mick Jagger and George Clooney.

controversy on WPP 2013

A few days ago WPP 2013 was announced and yesterday some controversy about Paul Hansen’s winning photo appeared online

I personally don’t understand what this controversy is about. I believe that photojournalism is not about how saturated the photography is… I don’t see big difference between both of those photographs (original file and published on WPP website)… and I don’t understand why anyone has some problem with this photo… it’s very small difference.
The funny part is that someone commented under this photos… that at such contests would like to see raw images… it would be interesting because in raw all photos are in color … so … following this idea… converting to black and white wouldn’t be allowed anymore? and how this would be ever possible …
