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, 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
