Features » 10 films of the last decade that every photographer should see This was not an easy list to make. Many considerations entered into my selections, and while my top 10 are not necessarily my favorite films of the decade (though a couple undoubtedly are) I have selected them for their relevance to the creation of images by photographers today. Movies are a photographic medium (motion pictures) and should be consumed by photographers for the same reasons we look at painting, sculpture, architecture, theatre, and the work of our colleagues; to be inspired, to be moved, to find something great to rip off (or, if you prefer, to dialogue with in our own work).

II Words, like small billows under hull, tiller the jib of my meandering thoughts.

MOSSLESS Mossless is an experimental photography publication that is run by its founder Romke Hoogwaerts and his partner, Grace Leigh. Romke started Mossless in 2009 as a blog where he interviewed a different photographer every two days. In January of 2012, Mossless was transformed from blog to print with the release of Issue 1 at Printed Matter in New York City. Romke partnered up with Grace in the Summer of 2012 for the creation of Issue 2, which the two of them made and produced out of their apartment in Long Island City, and it was released at that year’s New York Art Book Fair. Mossless continues to grow both on and offline, as Romke & Grace continue to work on future issues and projects. EmailMOSSLESS Mag9-01 44th Drive APT 3WLong Island City, NY 11101USA

Ottawa photographer Tony Fouhse tonyfoto/drool Last week I briefly touched upon how shooting projects where you have gone right to the edge, in terms of what’s at stake, can skew what seems important. Perhaps that post, brief as it was, was the best I could put it (because it was brief). But I’ll try to (briefly) expand on those thoughts here. Here goes . . .
