NPR is quickly becoming my go to place to find great photojournalism. This article is on Horst Faas who just passed away. The first half or so of these are surreal shots from the Vietnam war.

NPR is awesome for everything.

Horst Faas' photos of the bayonet execution shocked the hell out of me the first time I saw them. So incredibly intense.

It's being hammered right now because of Reddit, but this is a great set of 4x5 Kodachromes from WW2. I've been really enjoying WW2 era photos lately, and these are fantastic.

Jessica Eaton

"Canadian photographer Jessica Eaton uses her camera to create color invisible to the naked eye. She gives bright hues to gray forms in her series Cubes for Albers and LeWitt, and that work was recently awarded the photography prize at the 2012 Hyères International Festival of Fashion and Photography"

"Eaton applies filters in those three colors to her camera and takes multiple exposures, a process that turns the gray form seen here into the vibrant ones seen above. “The color itself is mixed inside the camera,” she says."

Now that is something entirely different and very awesome. It's great to see that there are still people willing to explore new ideas and avenues for photography.

Try expired Reala and overexpose it a bit, I get similar colors out of it shot in my Rolleiflex.

Definitely, it's fascinating. Also Bill Cunningham New York is another great documentary about a brilliant street/fashion photographer.

And if you have any interest in large setpiece photography, watch the 'Behind the Scenes' video:

All of his work is looking at landscapes in transition. It draws on the tradition of the sublime, so even when the work is peaceful there’s always this quality of on-the-verge-of-change,” Sutcliffe says. “Even if the photographs are sort of peaceful and idyllic there is this sense of this other, more interesting system at work.

The important thing is that you tried


[Eyes scan the picture for basic shape and composition]
"Ok, it's a big mountain or something, nothing too spectatular"

[Eyes pick up on the city in the horizon, trying to figure out context]
"Pretty cool, looks like a nice place"

It's pretty impressive the difference in atmosphere between these two, presumably taken just a few minutes apart. The first one seems like a decent snapshot and then the second one is :psyduck:. I love taking pictures in the mountains, it might be a pretty cool project to take photos of the same views in different weather conditions.

I love wildlife photography, but unfortunately a lot of it is just par for the course. I understand the difficulty, skill and patience involved in just being able to shoot certain animals competently in the wild, so when guys like Nick Brandt come along, they blow me away.
