“A visual shock. For the first time in its history, Libération is published without photographs. In their place: a series of empty frames that create a form of silence; an uncomfortable one.

Definition: Photography and Ethics | Photokonnexion Photographic Ethics Ethics is about the moral principles that people work with.

Marrakech: The city that distrusts photographers The English photographer Mark Power, who is quiet, self-effacing and a bit shy, is telling me what happened when he went out shooting on the streets of Marrakech with his American colleague Jim Goldberg, who is none of these things.

The business of photojournalism The business of photojournalism 13 February 2013Last updated at 04:29 ET Times are hard, the economy is sluggish and photographers are far from immune to the situation. Add to that the vast number of people chasing commissions means it's a tough time for those looking for financial backing. Yet there are options out there. Newspapers, magazines and websites are still commissioning work of course, but that's not the only way to be able to shoot the story you want to cover.

Since we started the 52 weeks project to document the year in pictures – a collaborative effort with Flickr users – we've seen the group taking part grow to more than 700 members and so far more than 1,000 photos have been submitted. From fireworks and storms in week one, to back-to-work blues and foggy sunsets in weeks two and three, we have now reached week five and the first week of February has been dominated by the snowy scenes. The aim of the group is to not only chronologically track 2012 in pictures – but to explore the ways we are taking and sharing photos in 2012. The news Kodak was filing for bankruptcy sparked this thread with users showcasing their favourite snaps taken on a Kodak and reminiscing on their favourite Kodak products.
