Below is a link to a retrospective of my work this year including the Obama inauguration seen from Paris, urban renewal in Warsaw, and maternal health in Niger.

Screen Production Lab is a training and mentorship program that focuses on production and distribution of visual documentaries across media platforms. The deadline to apply for the first Screen Lab is approaching. Full application details can be found here. To be held in New York, Screen Production Lab is ideal for visual storytellers (visual journalists, photographers, artists, media and cultural producers) who have a story in development or production stage. The Lab’s goal is to develop a hub of visual narrators in a complex media landscape where stories remain at the core of the debate.

Arkansas Nina Robinson. The Value of Slow Journalism in the Age of Instant Information. Paul Salopek had been writing international stories for more than 20 years before he decided to slow down. “I was a conventional foreign correspondent zipping around the world doing fireman stories,” he says. Working for the Chicago Tribune, he parachuted into crisis zones to report intensively for a week or two, churning out rich stories that earned him worldwide acclaim, along with a couple of Pulitzers.

Eventually, he settled down to write a book about his travels, a frustrating exercise for Salopek, who wanted to be out in the field, not writing about being out in the field. “I sat at my desk fantasizing about how to escape, and thinking what would be the most amazing narrative I could pursue,” he recalls. “What is the ultimate quest?” To follow that path, he would use the same means our long-ago ancestors did: his feet.

Thus was born the Out of Eden Walk, a seven-year quest to walk across the world and report every step of the way.

Twenty years ago, the boundaries of three new littoral states were mapped along the shores of the Caspian Sea. Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan and Turkmenistan have emerged from the wreckage of the Soviet Union with immense oil and gas reserves and the enormous challenge of defining themselves as independent nations-states.

Hope and ambition have been defining factors for various groups of people as new states attempt to integrate themselves into the world political economy. The big game of oil has promised to bring fresh glory to the countries and gigantic projects appear one by one on the shores, aiming to build new national pride for the population. Though the official presentation of prosperity affected only the front side, as the Potemkin -alike facade. Thoroughly built along the central roads in Baku, the facade is skillfully fixed to old Soviet blocks that are left in rotten condition.

Classique — julien mignot. Athens Photo Festival 2015. Celebrity Tintype Portraits Sundance 2015 - Victoria Will Tintypes 2015. At last year's Sundance Film Festival, photographer Victoria Will challenged herself to take tintype portraits of various celebrities, and convinced Bill Hader, Anne Hathaway, Nick Cave, and dozens of others to sit for the process. Developed during the mid-to-late–19th century, the technique involves coating a thin sheet of metal, or plate, with a syrupy substance called collodion, photo-sensitizing the collodion with silver nitrate, and exposing the plate to light. Tintype photography requires both speed and patience: Since the plate is wet when it is inserted into the camera, there's a limited window during which it can be used, and any and all movement while the image is being captured will show up in the resulting shot.

Will returned to Sundance this year to follow up on what she'd learned about the process, and spent the past week shooting stunning, old-timey portraits of Ethan Hawke, Jack Black, James Franco, Ewan McGregor, and many other celebrities attending the film festival. Diana markosian. One Year in Ukraine — Carolyn Drake. In 2006, I moved to Ukraine on a Fulbright fellowship. Traveling along the edges of the country over the course of the year, I was drawn to the vivid interlacing of people, nature, and land that I saw there – rural existence after collectivization, shadow economies in coal-mining towns, the imaginative lives of girls in a secluded orphanage, the politics of homeland among repatriated Muslims.

Following these seemingly disparate stories, I departed with a collection of photographs called One Year in Ukraine. Andrew Testa Photographer. Amos Chapple Photography. Magazine - stories that need to be told - new picture essay every Tuesday. Domik TownPhotography by © Danilo Balducci/ via ZUMA Press In 1988 a devastating earthquake ripped through Armenia, killing 25,000 people. The entire city of Spitak was destroyed. Geologists and earthquake engineering experts laid the blame on the poorly built support structures of apartments and other buildings built during the 'stagnation' era of Brezhnev. The former Soviet Union came under heavy criticism for failing to co-ordinate rescue work and acting promptly - revealing it had no contingency plans for any disasters. An estimated 20,000 people across the quake zone still occupy the metal shipping containers known here as 'domiks.' March 20, 2011 - Gyumri, Shirak, Armenia - Massgraves dot the hillside in the cemetery where most of the victims of the Spitak Earthquake are buried.
