Beckman, Rachel: These Aren’t Your Everyday Prom Polaroids (text plus slideshow) (WP: June 4, 2008) “On April 26, Mary Ellen Mark and her entourage of assistants set up a makeshift photo studio in a small room next to the school’s gymnasium. Mark is working on a three-year project called “Prom.” Charlottesville High was the seventh of 12 schools she is photographing. Next weekend, Mark will speak at the Look3 Festival of the Photograph here, where her Charlottesville photos will be on display. “Prom is a slice of Americana for me,” Mark said. “You learn about a culture and how different racial groups bring their own style to prom.” Mark, 68, has made a career of photographing the famous and the un-famous. Her pictures of celebrities (Johnny Depp, Maya Angelou and Sarah Jessica Parker to name a few) appear in publications such as the New Yorker, the New York Times and Rolling Stone. But her social-documentary photographs are the heart of her work, including mental patients in Oregon, circus performers in India and refugees in Ethiopia. One of her most famous images, taken in 1983, is of a 13-year-old Seattle prostitute named Tiny.”

Jonas Bendiksen’s Best Shot (Guardian: May 31, 2007) It seems the photo he is talking about is not available on the Guardian site. He is talking about this image, if I’m not completely mistaken.

Ernst Haas (1921-1986): Letter To Wilson Hicks Editor of Life Magazine, November 1949 ”There are two kinds of photographers – the ones who take pictures for a magazine to earn something, and the others who gain by taking pictures they are interested in. I am the second kind. I don’t believe in the in-between success of becoming famous as quickly as possible. I believe in the end success of a man’s work as developing into a real human being, aware of the connection in life between earth and the cosmos; a person able to understand the mistakes, and to admire the achievements, of other people.I have always felt better taking a risk than an easier route for what I believe in. I am young enough to do that, and I am full of energy and hope to reach my goal. I prefer to be noticed, someday, first for my ideas and second for my good eye. Maybe you will think I have not got my two feet quite on the ground, but if a photographer wants to show an overall view, he must find a point higher up. What I want is to stay free, so I can carry out my ideas. I don’t think there are many editors who can give me the assignments I give myself.” This letter was written in response to being offered a staff position at Life magazine – at the time it was the most significant picture magazine in the world.

Raza died last week in a car crash, ferrying two photographers on the insanely scary road from Peshawar back to Islamabad. They survived the accident; Raza didn’t.”

PDN : – Neda: Turning Point for Conflict Reporting?(PDN Pulse: June 2009) “On Saturday, a shocking video of a young woman bleeding to death appeared on social networking sites. Anonymous and impossible to trace, the clip went viral with a story attached: The woman is Neda, an opposition protester in Iran, who was gunned down by a government sniper Saturday on the streets of Tehran. We don’t know how much of this is true. There is no way to verify even basic information about the video. But the clip proved too strong to be bogged down by fact-checking. The witnesses heard in the clip express shock, then desperation, then utter helplessness, passing through an emotional arc in 40 seconds. A viewer can’t help but imagine being there, powerless to do anything other than keep the camera on.”
