Magnum Photos have a new website, which I personally found to be, sadly, anything but an improvement…slow, confusing, and most annoyingly all the old links don’t seem to work anymore…

I rarely used to be too interested in portraiture, but recently I’ve found myself looking at portrait photography quite a bit.  Brigitte Lacombe is one of them. She’s a photographer, whose work I often see in Newsweek (The Martin Amis photo seen below was printed in last week’s issue). I didn’t know anything about her though. Only having visited Lacombe’s website did I realise that she is in fact somebody who has been around for a long long time. Live and learn…
