Sunday 15 August 2010

I saw certain someone post a link to this on Facebook last week… The subject matter is pretty terrific as are a lot of the frames…Had never heard of the photographer before…

Features and Essays – Jörg Brüggemann: Same Same But Different (Photographer’s website) “Within the last decade backpacking has literally become a global youth movement. Every year millions of young people from first world countries travel the planet taking with them nothing more then their backpacks. They are hoping to find freedom, cultural exchanges and a lot of fun. It has become a tourist industry on its own that has developed its very own touristic infrastructure” | slideshow on Food For Your Eyes Vimeo

I’ve since been told that Jörg Brüggemann was one of the finalists of Magnum Expression Award.

Features and Essays – Jason Bell: An Englishman in New York (Guardian: August 2010)

Related… InterviewsJason Bell (Guardian: August 2010)

“The website of international New York and London based celebrity photographer Jason Bell.”

I don’t know about you… But the tagline celebrity photographer sounds silly to me….I mean the idea of being one… Although, the way the PJ industry is going, I guess a lot of so called PJs are going to have to do celebrity photography too… now… or soon… Just have to read the quote from Mary Ellen Mark in yesterday’s post…Don’t get me wrong though… I think Bell’s work is great… it’s just thinking about this celebrity obsessed culture of ours  can get a bit depressing at times..

This is also for Sunday…
