Photography and sex in Amos Badertscher’s Baltimore

The Baltimore photographer Amos Badertscher has been cataloguing queer lives in his city since the 1960s: male sex workers and their girlfriends, the 1990s Baltimore and Washington club culture, transgender people, crack and heroin addiction, and the impact of AIDS. His is the largest extant photographic record of the short lives of hustlers (male sex workers) that I know of. Though he could by no means be described as famous, Badertscher enjoyed a brief period of academic notice with the public...

Desk space

I’ve worked from home since 2005, and while the home’s changed six or seven times, it’s definitely been easier to focus when the desk’s clean. There’s some standard equipment that tends to stick around, though. BenQ PD3200u For years I used a 27″ iMac as my main screen, but the glare off the glass wasn’t great, and I’d always be increasing/decreasing the screen brightness depending on how sunny it was. The matt display of BenQ’s 32″ 4K monitor gets rid of that problem. It’s a lot easier...

What's Wrong With This Picture? Nikon Chooses 32 Star Male Photographers (No Women) To Promote Its New Camera

"What is so obvious to me – a professional photographer – as well as colleagues, photography bloggers and social media users, was not obvious to Nikon.

The Non-lens Camera Lens!

Sounds crazy, doesn’t it? Although most of the earliest cameras didn’t have glass lenses. They relied solely on pinholes (that provided a point source of light) for a focused image to be captured on film. The results were beautifully eerie and vintage and looked like Instagram filters WAY before Instagram was even a word.Contemporary cameras use state-of-the-art lenses, mirrors, mounts, AF/MF techniques to deliver amazing images, but those images are too life-like. There’s always a charm to vi...
