So who is this Bram guy, anyway? Where did he come from? What's his approach? In Tbilisi last month I was interviewed by Dina Oganova for the KOLGA TBILISI PHOTO FESTIVAL and the answers are within: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N9oaTpXS0q0

This thoughtful article by Melissa Smyth sums up much of why I can't abide the whole "Humans of New York" thing. http://www.warscapes.com/opinion/sentimentality-critique-humans-new-york …
“Sentimentality, the ostentatious parading of excessive and spurious emotion, is the mark of dishonesty, the inability to feel; the wet eyes of the sentimentalist betray his aversion to experience, his fear of life, his arid heart; and it is always, therefore, the signal of secret and violent inhumanity, the mask of cruelty.”                                              -James Baldwin, Notes of a Native Son

Breughel should be mandatory study for photographers. You'll learn more about handling large groups of people in a rectangle from him than anyone else. Thanks, Andy Adams, for posting this painting.
 
For the season - Pieter Bruegel the Elder, Census at Bethlehem, 1566.

Apropos of the World Press Photo Award controversy, the voice of a brilliant photojournalist from a different era:
http://lens.blogs.nytimes.com/2013/01/03/w-eugene-smith-i-didnt-write-the-rules-why-should-i-follow-them/?smid=fb-share&_r=0

I'm pleased to be in very good company in Aline Smithson's LENSCRATCH "Snow" exhibition - for those of you in sunnier climes: http://lenscratch.com/2014/12/the-2014-snow-exh
I live in Los Angeles, where about the closest thing we have to winter weather is a rain storm, so selfishly, I though it would be wonderful to have a White Christmas, even if it is only online.  Thank you for your wonderful images that make me wish I was somewhere else and thank you…
