I wish The New York Times would show more of their slideshows in the 800×535 pixels size like this one by Moises Saman, and not in the usual 600×400 pixels (see for instance the one by Eros Hoagland lower in the post)… So much better seeing the photographs bigger…

Neil Burgess’ comments on the state of photojournalism, originally published on the Editorial Photographers UK website here have received a lot of attention today in the Twittersphere after Guardian picked up the story…

Book review of Little Brown Mushroom’s recent Trent Parke publication. This review’s slightly critical. I’m sure there are other opinions out there too. I can’t offer any personal opinion as I haven’t seen the book…

I tend to shy away from putting links to equipment reviews, but this one about a small portable projector caught my attention.. Alternative way to show your portfolio perhaps…(This is not an endorsement obviously. Haven’t even seen the thing myself…)
