Recorded at The Pearly Gates. Running now and forever. Buck dancing in heaven.

Please think about this. Encourage media to discourage future shooters' desire for infamy. Don’t repeat their names or circulate their images. As a bereaved father, whose child was killed in Aurora, asserts: “My son would be just as dead if the killer’s name was John Doe. The name is irrelevant."

My photobook “year in review”; not all new, but all worth reading.
Tah Dah! A bunch of books. I believe a year has to be fully over before any summary statements can be made about it. Look at what happened to Alec Soth; he had a set aside a favorite in fall, then got one last book that blew ...

I met Katie and discussed her work in 2011, showed a couple of pieces as part of a regional survey at Flash Forward. I find it exciting and discomfiting. It is alluring on one hand, then somehow repellent. And I mean that in a positive way. Katie’s work is, like Jen says, “raw and wide-open”—the pie image in this group is outstanding.

This film was incredibly helpful for a piece I wrote about Magnum. I wrote the essay for Exposure, the SPE magazine, probably 13 years ago. So the myth has changed itself even more since then.

Warm-up laps completed on Fotoblog
It’s taken me longer than expected to get into the swing of things over there on the Hatje Cantz blog, but I feel like I’m finding my stride. Remember, this is a thought in process; I hope to finish the race by month’s end. Link to entry number 3 . Feel fre...

Revving up for a few laps on another track.
I was pleased and honored to receive an invitation from the German publisher Hatje Cantz to guest-host their “fotoblog” in February. Here’s the list of others who have had this gig. Some pretty tough acts to follow: Although they didn’t insist that I do thi...

I appreciate that you did this video without voiceover or audible reactions. It's just the stuff, doing what it does. I would like to see better lighting, but that might go against the grain of hand-made discovery that you've established. You see it as we see it. Or vice versa.

A brilliant and moving example of new media journalism. Not to mention a heart-wrenching, gut-turning story. Amazing.
For decades, dozens of men with intellectual disabilities lived in an old schoolhouse and worked in a turkey plant. No one knew just what they endured.

Quite a remarkable take on the landscape of southwestern China and the people formerly known as Tibetans.
From Awake to Awake by Kottie Gaydos. In 2010 I traveled to the grasslands of the Garze Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture in Sichuan, China. I wanted to hear the folk songs of Gesar, an 11th century enlightened warrior king, and to photograph the extended families of the Genong Village.
