Faux ours polaires, nazis et blackfaces : les archives de Jean-Marie Donat
 | VICE | France Photos tirées de TeddyBär Vous les avez peut-être déjà vues sur les réseaux sociaux – des vieilles photos d'Allemands en train de prendre la pose avec des faux ours polaires. Un peu ridicules, mystérieuses et dérangeantes à la fois, ce ne sont que quelques-unes des 10 000 photos de la collection de Jean-Marie Donat, un éditeur français qui collectionne d'étranges vieux clichés depuis trois décennies. Appelée TeddyBär par Donat, cette collection donne un drôle d'aperçu de l'histoire allemande. Si les ours eux-mêmes semblent bizarres, quand on place les 200 et quelques photos côte à côte, ce sont les autres personnages qui ressortent. Photos tirées de Blackface Si TeddyBär met en lumière des aspects étranges et parfois lugubres de la culture allemande, la collection Blackface de Donat en fait de même avec la culture américaine, et c'est peu dire. VICE : Salut Jean-Marie. Qu'est-ce qui vous a marqué dans la première photo ? J'ai découvert l'histoire derrière cette tradition. Vraiment ?

THE BROTHERS WRIGHT | Portfolio Mathieu Cesar Mathieu Cesar Les Intérieurs de la nouvelle jungle de Calais | VICE | France 20/02/2016, Calais, France. Il existe aussi des coiffeurs dans la jungle de Calais, des « barber shops » où les réfugiés viennent se faire couper les cheveux ou raser la barbe. Youssef était coiffeur en Afghanistan.

5 Myths Photographers Will Tell You About Film, or: Why Film Isn't Afraid of the Dark You will be hard pressed to find a reasonable working photographer today, who won’t admit that film still has a place in photography and really offers some unique characteristics, even if they choose to not use it. But often photographers who love shooting digital and don’t want to deal with film attempt to write off and make excuses for why they can’t shoot film. I’d like to offer a rebuttal to such excuses, inspired by a recent thoughtful PetaPixel post. I love film, but I think there is no need to make any excuses for shooting digitally in this day and age. In some ways digital just appeals more to many photographers. Just because one can find some underexposed “Red Wedding” photographs published in a “Martha Stewart wedding book from the 80s”, does not mean that is how film looks today — or even how it had to look back then. Myth 1. Not true at all. 1. 35mm Ilford Delta 3200 pushed 2. 35mm Kodak Portra 400 with off camera flash 35mm Fuji ACROS 100 with on camera flash 3. 4. Myth 2.
