Wednesday, May 2, 2007

Fred Ritchin, whose resume includes being a photo editor at the New York Times, co-autoring Salgado’s Uncertain Grace and authoring In Our Own Image – the coming revolution in photography, a book about the challenges of digital photography which was in print for 15 years, as director of PixelPress, a groundbreaking essay on Bosnia with Gilles Peress, and who is currently teaching at NYU gave a talk about digital photography and his upcoming projects.

The first few seconds are clipped, and we’ll put a video sometime next week as Fred was showing pictures.

martin parr

Martin Parr, author of, among others, “Boring Postcards” and “Bliss : Postcards of Couples and Families” explains in his conference how your family photography is form of propaganda, his opinion on technique, what his new agenda is, the demise of Corbis and Getty at the hands of Flickr and what the best new business model for successful photography is. And how dreadful, cliche’ed and boring a lot of amateur photography is.

The asteroid that wasn’t there…

Monday, February 5, 2007

This is a series of 16 photographs of a region of the sky, taken by an amateur astronomer, on which an asteroid which should be on a collision course with the earth does not appear, proving that there is no asteroid on a collision course with the earth. On the theoretical level, proof by absence isn’t really common in photography – you’d traditionally use photography to prove that something WAS there, not that something WASN’T there.

A complete story of the incident, which almost prompted a phone call to the White House, is available here.

JPG magazine

Saturday, February 3, 2007

JPG magazine

JPG is ‘the magazine of brave new photography’ – a printed magazine available in stores, and an online community. Unlike traditional magazines, JPG is created by its readers: anyone can contribute their photographs and vote on their favorites. The best are printed in the next issue.

We’ll be showing a bunch of work from JPG magazine: there will be 20 prints of the ‘most favorited’ images, i.e. the JPG community’s most appreciated images.

We strongly suggest you read the ‘letter from the editors‘ (euphemism for ‘manifesto’).

Co-creator and editor Derek Powazek will be there for the opening and will participate in the round-table with sascha and régine.
