Iceland: Three Different Takes

The last couple of years there have been several photo projects on Iceland. It is no doubt an amazing and unique landscape and most of the projects have been quite inspirational. Nearly all of them you get a sense of the ruggedness one must have to live (or photograph) in such a harsh environment. A few photographers whose work really caught our eye are Kevin Cooley, Lauren Lancaster, and Justin Fantl.

Steve McCurry Interview on Minnesota Public Radio

The work of Steve McCurry hardly needs an introduction. His work seems especially relevant in today's climate, especially to me his pre-Soviet invasion images from Afghanistan.

LACMA is to present the most comprehensive U.S. retrospective of Photographer William Eggleston, October 31, 2010 through January 16, 2011.

Eggleston is regarded as a master of color photography and for his portrayal of quintessentially American scenes.

Amongst many things, the exhibition will also focus on the use of his photographs on numerous album covers, and his inspiring influence on filmmakers of today.

Dont Miss This: Capture Brooklyn Exhibition 2010

According to the hosts:

New York City is indisputably the cultural capital of the world. In the 20th century, the nexus of relevant art was the island of Manhattan. But the 21st century has seen a definitive shift, making Brooklyn the new epicenter of literature, music, art, and photography.

Capture Brooklyn, a new initiative by the New York Photo Festival, is a juried exhibition of contemporary photography that seeks to capture the spirit and essence of Brooklyn, and to showcase the vitality of photography happening in the hottest part of New York right now!

Drawn from submissions received online through August 29, 2010, 80 photographs will be selected and exhibited at The powerHouse Arena in Dumbo, Brooklyn. The show's official opening will take place during this year's Dumbo Arts Festival (September 24-26), an event that draws over 150,000 visitors over 3 days - and will remain open until October 15, 2010.

It is our hope that Capture Brooklyn will not only serve to acknowledge and celebrate the fantastic photography happening in this borough, but also encourage and nurture the growth of Brooklyn's artistic renaissance.
