Haven’t seen this work in ages. The last time might have been at VII’s London Seminar back in spring 2007 at Royal Geographic Society.  Stunning series…

Features and Essays – Joachim Ladefoged: Albanians (VII Magazine: July 2010) Ladefoged’s website … Haven’t seen much new work from him the last couple of years… at least not many new features on VII’s website. The last one I remember is this one about Shakira back in 2009.

One a different note, I wish VII would bring the show back in town. To London, that is…

Shooting Robert King now streaming on Snag Films’ website..

I watched it on BBC iPlayer the other week, and can recommend the documentary wholeheartedly. I think it’s fair to say, Robert King is quite a character. Robert is represented by Polaris Images

Features and Essays – Charlie Mahoney: An End to Bullfighting (Photographer’s PhotoShelter Archive) | Looming Bullfighting Ban in Barcelona (Corbis: 2010) ” In the 1900’s Barcelona was one of the world’s most celebrated bullfighting cities. With its three bullrings, it hosted more bullfights than any other Spanish city. Today, Barcelona’s Plaza Monumental is Catalonia’s only remaining active bullring and faces a referendum in the Catalonian Parliament that would ban bullfighting in the region. An animal rights group, Prou (pronounced “pro”), forced the debate after gathering more than 180,000 signatures.”

Articles – BJP: Can we be of any assistance? (BJP: July 2010) Who wants to be a photography student? Now is possibly the worst time to try to break into an industry that offers no safety net to aspiring graduates, which is why two organisations are trying to help

If you’ve seen a link in the posts this past week, but can’t find it in the archive, the reason is that I’m currently running 7 days behind putting stuff in the archive. So all the photographers’ websites, features and essays et cetera, will eventually be included in the relevant archives. I’m simply running out of time…
