The Getty Digital Archive Expands to 135,000 Free Images: Download High Resolution Scans of Paintings, Sculptures, Photographs & Much Much More

J. Paul Getty was not a billionaire known for his generosity. But since his death, the Getty Trust and complex of Getty museums in L.A. have carried forth in a more magnanimous spirit, ostensibly adhering to values that transcend their founder: “service, philanthropy, teaching, and access.” A collection first gathered for private investment and consumption (sometimes under a cloud of scandal) has expanded into galleries that millions pass through every year; a Conservation Institute dedicated t...

Sarah Meister On Dorothea Lange

Ethics Question

Interesting issue: is there a moral dimension to an old photographic print of a poor man selling at a New York City auction for six figures? Dorothea Lange, White Angel Bread Line, San Francisco, 1933. I say there isn't. What there is is irony. Irony is intuitively understood by most literate, educated people, which all of us are, but let's talk about it anyway. Wikipedia notes its formal use as a communicative technique: "Irony, in its broadest sense, is a rhetorical device, literary techniq...

Hot Take: Smartphones Have Ruined Photography According to Wim Wenders

A lot of our stories of late have focused on how smartphones are helping to grow photography as a field and how much of an impact the tech being developed for those devices impact the rest of the industry. Largely the democratizing effect that smartphones have had on photography is something many people praise. After all, more photos are taken on a per annum basis now than at any time in human history. And while quantity does not promise quality it certainly gives us all a broader selection of w...

'Finding a Visual Identity in the Digital Age'

I wrote the following yesterday: "Cameras have all gotten so 'good' that what's starting to emerge is a certain tyranny of sharp, clear, detailed, correct-color, adequate-DR digital images. It's not all the same equipment, but more and more it's the same, or a similar, aesthetic look." Richard Palmer emailed this morning to point out that Ralph Gibson addressed that very subject in a TEDx talk called "Finding a Visual Identity in the Digital Age." Indeed, at 2:53, Ralph says more or less the sam...

‘Mudbound’s’ Morrison Uses Still Photography Skills

DP Rachel Morrison’s rich, naturalistic imagery lends “Mudbound” a palpable sense of time and place: post-war Mississippi. Her peers in the Academy and at the American Society of Cinematographers recognized her work with nominations. For Morrison, in many ways it was the closing of a circle: The iconic 1930s and ’40s imagery of Dorothea Lange, […]

1,600 Rare Color Photographs Depict Life in the U.S During the Great Depression & World War II

The title of Walker Evans and James Agee’s extraordinary work of literary photojournalism, Let Us Now Praise Famous Men, may have lost some of its ironic edge with subsequent acclaim and the fame of its writer and photographer. First begun in 1936 as a project documenting the largely invisible lives of white sharecropping families in rural Alabama, when the book appeared in print in 1941 it only sold about 600 copies. But over time, writes Malcolm Jones at Daily Beast, “it has established itsel...

Ten Photography Books You Cannot Read In Texas Prisons

So, you have a bit of time on your hands. Six to ten years maybe, all spent in the welcoming bosom of the Texas penal system. As a photographer, you will probably not get much chance to do some shooting. Landscapes and street photography are definitely out. You might be able to do a little bit of macro in your cell but the chances are that any camera will be considered contraband. So if a photographer cannot shoot, what does he or she do? Read is one good option. Imagine the amount of photograph...
