Stunning photojournalism by Richard Mosse

Cybele Malinowski Reader Find

By Cybele Malinowski in New Photography on Wednesday 16 May 2012

‘Extreme tourism’. That’s what Richard Mosse describes his field of photo-journalism as. His work really stands out as unique art amongst the plethora of press photographs of war-torn countries. Using infra-red film, the landscapes surrounding his military subjects jump out of the frame as a clash of vibrant magentas and violets, celebrating the natural environment which often goes forgotten in times and places of conflict.

Gerry Mak Reader Find

By Gerry Mak in New Photography on Monday 5 April 2010

Daniel Shea’s lens mostly focuses on the ugly, the forgotten, and not always irredeemable sides of American culture — the decaying neighborhoods of Baltimore, the poor and working class people of his hometown of Chicago, and the devastation of the mining industry in Appalachia. His most recent series, Plume, documents the coal-fired power plants of southeastern Ohio, where smokestacks loom over abandoned towns, generic suburban sprawl, and once idyllic farmland.

World Press Photo 2008

Francis Andrews Reader Find

By Francis Andrews in New Photography on Thursday 27 November 2008

There’s something about the immediacy of press photography, where the setting is rarely staged and the acts usually entirely spontaneous, that makes it so absorbing.

2008: Portrait of a Postcode

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in New Photography on Friday 17 October 2008

I love the sense of quiet yet peaceful desolation that Australian photographer Lucia Fischer captures in her essay, 2008; Portrait of a Postcode. Of the gritty and textural series, she says: ‘I have been working on the project for the past two years. It is about the little suburb of Chippendale in Sydney. It’s only small and unknown to many Sydney-siders, but it has this great dirty, grungy and grimy history that stems from the CUB Brewery and the industrial culture that has evolved around it. The streetscapes are alive with colour and textures that reflect the rogue atmosphere of the area. I just can’t get enough of the place and spend hours aimlessly wandering through the streets with my Rolleiflex camera. But the ruthian Chippendale character is in danger!’
