As I've written here previously , I have a particular interest in photography from Romania -- and more specifically the Transylvania region where I have family roots and have traveled in the past (including the image above, taken on the outskirts of the city Medias, in Transylvania). There seems to be a certain energy and momentum rising for artists in Romania, propelling them onto a larger international stage. The accolades of filmmakers such as Cristi Puiu and Corneliu Porumboiu (the latter of whom produced my favorite Romanian film thus far, 12:08 East of Bucharest ), and what they've done for the overall Romanian film scene, obviously come to mind as an immediate example.
In 1963 my family moved to Greece for a year while my father taught at the University of Athens. We returned to the USA in 1964 and then moved back to Greece in 1968. The whole time we were there my father was taking photos. In 2005 I scanned my father's slides of Greece and undertook the task of cleaning them up.

The Danube Delta, Europe's most pristine river delta, is a 5000 sq km expanse of low-lying wetland that has remained relatively untouched and sparsely populated, despite lying along the faultline where empires have repeatedly clashed over centuries. ~~At the end of its nearly 2,900 km course, the Danube, Europe's longest river, spreads out into countless tentacles over a huge, watery plain along the border between Romania and Ukraine. The Danube Delta, Europe's second largest after the great Volga Delta on the Caspian coast, was declared a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1991 and has remained relatively pristine, largely due to its relative isolation from major urban centres and a very thinly spread population of around 20,000.

Moving beyond the urban-centric/scenic/iconic structures, which dominate the current visual record of China, it considers the cultural dynamism of smaller provincial cities and rural prefectures far removed from China’s coastal metropole.
Khin Cho Myint was involved in the democracy uprisings of 1988 as a first year student and participated in the 1991 10D movement, but went into hiding to avoid arrest. She was arrested in September 1998 for her role in the student demonstrations, and was sentenced to 10 years in prison, serving six in Insein and Moulmein prisons before being released in 2004. She is currently living in the Nupo refugee camp on the Thai-Burma border, awaiting resettlement.

All around the world - Franny Wentzel - Thursday, May 6th, 2010 : goo [previous] :: [next] In the early part of the 20th century French-Jewish capitalist Albert Kahn set about to collect a photographic record of the world, the images were held in an 'Archive of the Planet'. Before the 1929 stock market crash he was able to amass a collection of 180,000 metres of b/w film and more than 72,000 autochrome plates, the first industrial process for true colour photography
“Mendel takes out his camera. No more flowers, clouds, natures, stills or landscapes. Amid the horror all around him he has found his destiny: to photograph and leave behind a testimony for all generations about the great tragedy unfolding before his eyes.”
