His work has sometimes been openly critical of American society and foreign policy; the film critic Jonathan Rosenbaum once wrote that Klein's 1968 satire Mr. Freedom was "conceivably the most anti-American movie ever made

Michael Tittel: Behavior This week we are sharing work submitted to Lenscratch… It does not happen often, but every now and then I will catch someone sneaking a candid of me in public. It is the photographer in me that relates to the strides taken for the perfect image, and because of this I always pretend I cannot see them. I shake their presence off in hopes that I embodied what they needed, that in some way I managed to help them in their quest for a perfect image.

johnnyoptic I've become a compulsive experimenter: Homemade (DIY) lenses in particular, but also infrared photography, astrophotography, very long exposure, tilt-shift, pinhole, in-camera textures, light painting, camera movement, physiograms, Photoshop effects, and even some lensless photography. There's just not enough time. Your feedback on my images is very important to me.

Égarements by Cerise Doucède With application, precision and humour, photographer Cerise Doucède created the series ‘Égarements’ (aberration) consisting of installations which represents each of our dreams and obsession or even fears. By shaping her own visions, she reproduces her version of reality and sublimates the most ordinary moments. Objects thus come to life around one or more figures, in intimate locations, at key moments of everyday life.

seeking selection and good prices... in London Tsingtao says: Just near the junction of Brick Lane and Whitechapel High Street (officially, Brick Lane's called Osborn street at this point if you look on google maps) there's a small shop selling batteries, blank CDs, digital media - and film. Cheaper than the high street. Not sure what they have in stock, but they difinately did have Ilford and Fuji products when I was in there about 6 months back. i think they shut early on a saturday. Bit out of central London, but only a spit from Tower Hill. Nearby Spitalfields and Shoreditch are photogenic, too.
