It's that time of year again, the Earth's northern hemisphere is tipping away from the warmth of the Sun. Days in the north are getting cooler and shorter, leaves are changing, animals migrating and many harvests are underway. The wet summer in New England this year should make 2009 a banner year for brightly-colored fall foliage in the area. Collected here are a group of photographs of recent Autumn scenes around the northern hemisphere. ( 32 photos total ) <p style="text-align:right;color:#A8A8A8"></p>
This photographic report exposes the proliferation of processed foods in the western diet and in the diets of many developing countries the world over.
In the Mixteca, one of the most impoverished regions in Mexico, migration to the United States has arrived like a storm. In a place so insular that pre-columbian languages like Mixteco, Trique, and Asmuzgos are still spoken more widely than Spanish, and where cars, electricity and indoor plumbing are recent introductions, if they exist at all, northern migration has emptied communities and transformed the lives of those left behind. Some villages have lost as much as 80% of their population to the north and have become little more than ghost towns, home to just a handful of old men, women and the left-behind children of migrants. In San Miguel Cuevas -- or Nuyuco, Face of the Mountain, in Mixteco -- just 500 people out of 3000 remain. Its streets are largely empty, its fields stand deserted, its century-old way of life lies in shambles as families dissolve to the north, rending the social fabric of this traditional agrarian society.

President Barack Obama told war-weary Americans in a 15 minute address from the East Room of the White House that the United States had largely achieved its goals in Afghanistan and that a withdrawal of American troops would be set in motion. He said Afghanistan no longer represented a terrorist threat to the United States and that the "tide of war is receding." He announced plans to withdraw 10,000 troops from Afghanistan by the end of this year. The remaining 20,000 troops from the 2009 "surge" would leave by next summer. He added that the drawdown would continue "at a steady pace" until the US handed over security to the Afghan authorities in 2014.
這幅是畫還是相片？ By Alex On May 24, 2011
UK-based photographer Colin Roberts was named the competition's overall winner for his image of sea thrift flowers taken at Widemouth Bay, Cornwall, entered in the wildflowers category. Judge Clive Nichols said: 'This image struck me immediately - the depth of field is superb, leading the eye from the beautifully backlit flowers in the foreground all the way to the sea on the horizon, giving a great sense of depth to the picture and placing the thrift in context' Photograph: Colin Roberts/IGPOTY <p style="text-align:right;color:#A8A8A8"></p>
之前紅遍半邊天的 東京漂浮少女 ，讓人發現攝影有相當多變的玩法，最近台灣也出現了 仆街少女 ，引起小小的話題；筆者發現最近遠在地球另一端歐洲也出現了一位摔跤少女，以假亂真的摔跤技巧令人驚艷，作者也大方公佈摔跤照的拍攝技法，除了需要前製手動加工、事後也用到一些後製修圖技巧，讓我們一起來看看。 出生於捷克布拉格的 Zuzi ，是位喜歡攝影的少女，除了拍正常的東西外，也很擅長拍摔跤的照片。

一個女孩子的房間該是怎麼樣的？是乾淨整潔、窗明几淨、最好床頭櫃上再擺盆小花兒嗎？或許在瓊瑤小說裡可以找到這種纖細的理性，不過對於活跳跳的青春期女孩來說，她的房間就應該跟她們一樣有個性阿！ 這是一名黎巴嫩的攝影師 Rania Matar 的系列作品，靈感來源就是自己的女兒：『的當我看著青春期的女兒和她的朋友們，從原先無憂無慮的小女孩，開始用自己的方式去面對這個世界，過程中雖然充滿不安定以及矛盾，但是這個轉變卻令我著迷，讓我想藉由照片紀錄下這個瞬間、這個女孩以及屬於她的天地』Well~ 很高興有一個媽媽可以如此欣賞女孩們的瘋狂空間，畢竟不是所有家長都如此超脫的呢！ 在她的攝影作品『A Girl's Room』裡頭，沒有一張照片的背景是乾淨的，但卻都充滿個人張力，透過 Rania Matar 的眼睛，我們似乎也能感受到照片中女孩的個性，很佩服她能夠將一級戰區提昇到這種等級，不過當然啦，這不是在鼓勵大家用力把房間弄亂，而是覺得在這個處處壓抑的社會生活中，一定要記得保留一塊可以放心做自己的地方，才不會迷失喲！
Japan is just in the beginning of the long term recovery effort from the earthquake that struck off northeastern Japan on March 11. The crisis alert level from the damage to the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant has now been raised to the highest level of impact, the same as the Chernobyl Russia incident 25 years ago. Searchers continue to look for the dead, displaced Japanese live in shelters, protests continue over use of nuclear power, Japan's economic engine may be disrupted, the massive cleanup of debris is just underway, aftershocks are feared and many continue to mourn those who were lost. The photos collected here are from one month to the day of the quake and beyond. -- Lloyd Young ( 36 photos total )
Each day, wire service photographers from around the world file photos to their member papers that fall under the category of "daily life." On February 8, 2011, I posted a Big Picture that featured some photography from Pakistan under that heading. The images document what we call in newspaper terminology, "slice of life" photography. They are ordinary, random moments captured around a city or in the countryside and they give us just a glimpse of something in that particular place that we might not ordinarily be able to experience. The images in this post are by photographers from the Associated Press based in China. Again, they contain very little caption information and are intended to provide a small window into another culture perhaps far from our own yet reflecting elements of universality.
我們可以觀察到的，攝影史書寫在二十世紀中期之後有一種採取多重敘事的傾向，甚至必要性。針對這個問題所作的逐點開展和討論，包括對象、概念、派典方面的探討，以及晚近數個版本攝影通史的寫作方式及方法論思考比較，構成本文的主要章節，最後並以攝影史研究相關新議題的提出和討論作為結語。 一、前言 攝影在西方出現之後，即曾對以繪畫為主導的藝術創作產生重大的衝擊，這已是藝術史上的共識。攝影擴大也質疑了藝術的本質，使得攝影逐漸成為一個良好的理論對象。在藝術史的基本方法上，攝影及攝影史的寫作產生了什麼樣的新開展？
