Discussion with MaryAnne Golon

Sunday, March 25, 2007

We’ve just uploaded this afternoon’s discussion with MaryAnne Golon. Ms. Golon is the director of photography for Time Magazine. The discussion ranged from Time’s “you” person of the year to amateur photography websites, through James Nachtwey in Iraq and how Time intends to deal with crowdsourcing.

Most of it is in English, but there are a couple of passages in French – everything switches back to english afterwards, though.

New York Times: Look at Me, World! Self-Portraits Morph Into Internet Movies

Sunday, March 18, 2007

Article today in the Art & Design section of the New York Times, talking about Noah, and the show: Look at Me, World! Self-Portraits Morph Into Internet Movies

One of the distinguishing characteristics of the new age of digital portraiture is the ease with which photographers, professional or amateur, can so easily produce images, videos, sequences and other projects that are dramatic, fresh and interesting. “Digital technology has changed what portraits look like,” Mr. Lipkin said. “If you pay attention to Facebook, MySpace, Flickr and the other social Internet sites, you see right away how stylized the portraits are. How they are taken from odd angles and with interesting lighting. It’s the angle of the hand-held digital camera.”

Update: the story also ran in the International Herald Tribune: The Internet elevates amateur self-portraits into art
