Articles | October 2012

We haven’t had an Articles post on the site for a long time, so some of the links are as old as from the past summer, but hopefully still relevant to those who haven’t yet read them… This first one’s recent though…interesting article in this week’s Newsweek by Sarah A. Topol on young rookie freelance journalists working in war zones….The main photo seen on the spread below is by Ben Lowy by the way (who is seen with Nicole Tung in the photo on the right), although he obviously isn’t one of the people discussed in the article…

Somewhat related perhaps… Action packed trailer to 4 part HBO documentary series on conflict photographers: Witness. Surprisingly, I could find very little info on the series online… It doesn’t even appear to have a website… I recognised three photographers in the trailer… Michael Christopher Brown, Eros Hoagland, and Veronique de Viguerie…There are four episodes though:  Libya, South Sudan, Juarez, and Rio… so perhaps there’s a fourth photographer featured, but I don’t know..

Total War: A New Look at Conflict Photography (New Yorker) ‘In November, the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, will unveil an exhibition on war photography unprecedented in scale and ambition. The origins of “War/Photography: Images of Armed Conflict and Its Aftermath” can be traced back to the museum’s acquisition—ten years ago—of the first known print of Joe Rosenthal’s famous photograph of the raising of the American flag at Iwo Jima.’

After becoming a foreign-affairs correspondent for London’s Sunday Times in 1985, Colvin entered nearly every war zone on the planet right up to her death, in Homs, Syria, in February.’

Tearsheet of the Day | Robin Hammond’s Condemned in The Sunday Times Magazine

Finally got around to reading last weekend’s The Sunday Times Magazine. Robin Hammond’s Condemned project, which documents the treatment of mentally ill in different parts of Africa, is featured prominently in the magazine’s Spectrum section, which showcases great photography. Condemned is shown on the cover and two spreads under the title ‘Lost Souls – The brutal treatment of the mentally in Africa’. The project, which was recently exhibited at Visa pour l’image festival, has its dedicated website at condemned-africa.com.
