The Spanish Are Coming! by Adrian Tyler Cristina de Middel’s Afronauts was one of the most surprising book phenomenons of last year, however there are lot more new Spanish lens based artists and bookmakers to be discovered. The recent curatorial, critical and popular interest in the photobook and it’s place as the driving force in the history of modern photography is a welcome breath of fresh air which challenges traditional elitist museum based views. However, as far a Spain is concerned there is an almost complete void in this “history” which is especially notable from the 60’s to the present day. That is no to say that there were no good photographers working in Spain at this time – Juan Colom, Ramón Masats, Cristina Garcia Rodero, Carlos Pérez Siquier and Cristobal Hara to name a few – rather that the traditionally conservative nature of Spanish society meant that there was almost no photobook market and therefore no publishing houses.

But after failing to persuade them to pose for him, he decided to put his camera away and play the grateful guest. The result was that in no time at all he got steaming drunk and slumped into an alcoholic stupor.

Joel-Peter Witkin photography - Joel-Peter Witkin One of the most renowned American photographer Joel-Peter Witkin was cursed as a Satanist for his work, his exhibitions have repeatedly tried to close, and yet, for the fourth time he is awarded for his contribution to British fine art.

How Sociologists Made Themselves Irrelevant Early in 2014, President Obama announced a new initiative, My Brother’s Keeper, aimed at alleviating the problems of black youth. Not only did a task force appointed to draw up the policy agenda not include a single professional sociologist, but I could find no evidence that any sociologist was even consulted in the critical first three months of the group’s work, summarized in a report to the president, despite the enormous amount of work sociologists have done on poverty and the problems of black youth. Sadly, this situation is typical because sociologists have become distant spectators rather than shapers of policy.
