Friday 1 October 2010

I wasn’t planning on making updates today, but I’ve been at home all day….couldn’t get tickets to the first BPB session, as it was sold out…and it’s been raining cats and dogs…so been doing some paperwork…as well as checking up on Twitter a lot….and there’s so much good stuff out there, I better share some of them already today…otherwise I’m gonna be proper swamped tomorrow! Heading to the Brighton Photo Biennial openings later tonight… so in honour of the festival let’s start with a couple of BPB related links….

I mentioned to  Olivier at BJP on Twitter earlier that he needs a new mic, as the audio in this  Chaskielberg interview is pretty poor… and he did say he is getting an external mic for his iPhone next week… so let’s hope we can expect better sound in the future….

“The drill scenario for the August exercise went as follows: “The year is 2014, and a new breed of neo-Islamic terrorism is rampant in Michigan, Illinois, Indiana and Ohio…The current White House Administration is pro-Muslim and has ordered a stand-down against Islamic groups.” The goal is to destroy the enemy command post, or die trying.”

I feel like street photography is going through a revival…

Project Street Photography Now Project : “Street Photography Now Project is a collaboration between The Photographers’ Gallery, London and Sophie Howarth and Stephen McLaren, authors of Street Photography Now (Thames and Hudson). Each week from 1 October 2010, a leading contemporary street photographer will issue a new instruction, written to inspire fresh ways of looking at and documenting the world we live in. Over the following six days photographers around the world are invited to upload one photograph in response, to form part of a Street Photography Now Project Gallery on Flickr. After six days the next instruction will be issued.”

This looks interesting..
