Giles Duley: 'My friends love the idea of me being half man, half camera' On 7 February this year, Giles Duley, an independent 39-year-old British photographer, was blown up by a landmine in Afghanistan.

Giles Duley: 'My friends love the idea of me being half man, half camera'

He became a triple amputee, losing his left arm and both legs. His life is a miracle – most soldiers with similar injuries do not survive. It is his suggestion that we meet at London's Charing Cross hospital, where he is recovering from an operation to ease ossification of muscle at the end of one of his leg stumps. I am not used to combining interviewing with hospital visiting but it is obvious that this is typical Duley. He has stoicism and spark, wants to get on with things, is more than willing to answer questions from his hospital bed. Our reason for meeting is, in part, Becoming the Story, a retrospective of his work. DSLR - Photography Seminar. Invalid quantity.

Astronauts' photographs from space flights and moon landing go on sale. They often used Hasselblad cameras from Sweden modified only by the addition of a bigger button to press, but then taking pictures when you are an astronaut in a bulky, pressurised suit is clearly tricky.

Astronauts' photographs from space flights and moon landing go on sale

Many of the astronauts' early space photographs have become extremely famous, more for their otherworldly beauty than their scientific value. And now some are to appear in the UK's first dedicated sale of vintage Nasa photographs. Bloomsbury Auctions in London has announced details of the first specialist sale of images showing how man came to land on the moon. "We are thrilled," said Sarah Wheeler, Bloomsbury's photographs specialist. "What we are offering are historic artefacts – rare, iconic, vintage photographs taken by the astronauts themselves and printed within days of their return to Earth and very different from today's downloadable images.

" More than 280 photographs, with estimated values ranging from £200 to £10,000, will be auctioned. Am.

Split Family Faces. Cousins: Justine, 29, & Ulric, 29 How much do you and your family members really look alike?

Split Family Faces

Quebec, Canada-based graphic designer and photographer Ulric Collette has created a shockingly cool project where he's exploring the genetic similarities between different members of the same family. By splitting their faces in half and then splicing them together, he creates interesting new people that are sometimes quite normal looking and other times far from it. He calls this series Genetic Portraits. Scott's own Antarctic expedition photographs published for first time.

The last beautiful images taken by Captain Scott of his doomed Antarctic expedition have been published after lying for almost a century unrecognised in a cardboard box in a photographic archive.

Scott's own Antarctic expedition photographs published for first time

Robert Falcon Scott and his companions froze and starved to death in their tent just 11 miles from a food and fuel cache, during their Terra Nova expedition which had reached the South Pole in January 1912. By the time the bodies were found in November that year, a copyright row had already begun that would keep Scott's photographs out of the public gaze. After two years of lectures, exhibitions, slide shows and film screenings, and a bitter clash over who owned the rights, thousands of photographs, along with Scott's images, were returned to the expedition photographer, Herbert Ponting. The nitrate film of the collection disintegrated, but a single set of positives printed by Ponting survived, stored loose in a cardboard box. Alma telescope opens its eyes – in pictures.

They're some of the unusual scenes thrown up by the Street Photography Now Project (SPNP), which reached its culmination this week after a year of uncovering – and nurturing – new talent behind the camera. Last October, SPNP set out to encourage a generation of Cartier-Bressons through the simple means of a weekly instruction: participants had six days to shoot the brief and upload their single best shot.
