A photo from Eugene Richards' book Cocaine True, Cocaine Blue.

I first became introduced to the photography of Eugene Richards when I bought his book Below the Line: Living Poor in America. In 1986 Richards traveled across the United States photographing poverty in America – specifically people living below the government’s definition of the “poverty line.” The book was funded in large part by Consumers Union, the publishers of Consumer Reports magazine.

He has published numerous books over the years including his award winning works Cocaine True, Cocaine Blue, an examination of Cocaine users, as well as the Knife and Gun Club, a documentary essay on the emergency room at Denver General Hospital.

Richards has branched out into documentary filmmaking as well as photography for advertising clients.

His work has always been an inspiration for me. Be sure to browse some of the amazing work on his website.

Noor Images, an Amsterdam based photo agency.

Noor Images is a photo agency based in the Netherlands with a small group of outstanding photojournalists that cover stories across the globe.

I came upon their website after someone sent me a link to their Noor Newsletter, Since their most recent addition came out today.

After poking around their site a bit I realized that I knew one of the photographers at the agency, Nina Berman, who I had worked with in the late 90′s in New Jersey. A slide show of her images of Marina Orlova, who was voted “World’s #1 Sexiest Geek” by Wired Magazine and has one of the hottest channels on YouTube.

The Noor Gallery features links to the agency’s latest work in different areas including multimedia, long term photo projects, their latest picture stories and an archive of older works.

Lots of great work here that is worth exploring!

Christopher Anderson's Capitoio, a multimedia photo essay produced by Magnum in Motion.

Christopher Anderson's Capitoio, a multimedia photo essay produced by Magnum in Motion.

Christopher Anderson, a photographer with the Magnum photo agency, has a very nice multimedia slide show from Caracas, Venezuela that was put together by the Magnum in Motion division of the agency.

There are over 70 photos in the slide show which is set to moving Latin music by Banda Ionica.

Capitolio translates into capitol, or the domed capitol buildings of Venezuela. The photos are taken in the capitol city of Caracas and show the darker side of the city where “the human drama plays itself out in what President Hugo Chavez called a ‘Revolution.’”

You can also view the images separately through the thumbnail gallery.

You can see a portfolio of Anderson’s work here.


“I sometimes imagine Caracas as a living breathing animal. Obscured by the darkness it appears both violent and sensual, but perhaps it’s true nature will only be revealed at the moment it devours me.” – Christopher Anderson

“Emotion or feeling is really the only thing about pictures I find interesting. Beyond that it is just a trick.” – Christopher Anderson

Donna Ferrato. Photographer. Photo journalist. 10013.

Donna Ferrato's 10013 project on the Tribeca neighborhood in New York City.

Donna Ferrato's 10013 project on the Tribeca neighborhood in New York City.

Donna Ferrato, probably best known for her work documenting domestic violence, has put together a collection of photos documenting the Tribeca neighborhood of New York City, where she has lived since 1997. The collection is called 10013 after the Zip code for Tribeca.

The collection includes portfolios from 2008 and 2009 as well as portfolios dedicated to construction in the area as well as one that looks at the neighborhood’s sense of style.

One of the portfolios is called “We Live in Public” and documents a project that was done in New York at the end of 1999.

(We live in Public) was the brain child of Internet dot com visionary Josh Harris, www.weliveinpublicthemovie.com, where 80 people (mostly residents/artists) were hand picked to live underground in steel bunkers for 2 weeks over Christmas and New Years. Ms. Ferrato joined the frey and invisibly moved around the happening to catch the candid moments of the set up…once you were in – you couldn’t get out.
