Photo/Art Blogs



If I was to invent a product “Instant Art Scene” it would contain a bag with some powder in it, and after you pour hot water over it, it would result in a smallish group of people who only talk to each other or to people wealthy enough to buy art, using mostly code - a language that makes only limited sense in the real world. Of course, I’m just kidding. Anyway, there are some interesting art blogs out there, written by professional art critics (as far as I can tell), and it’s always worth checking those out. I just discovered Edward Winkleman’s blog, check it out!

The term “photo blog” is often used for blogs where people post their own photos. As is obvious, this - and many other - blogs does not fit into that category. You could probably start a discussion about whether blogs like this one are meta-photo blogs but I don’t want to be mistaken for belonging to an art scene (kidding again). Somewhere in between are blogs like Martin Fuchs’ who is “currently doing a 6-months internship at the renowned photo agency Magnum Photos in their New York City office” (sponsored by Canon - now there’s an idea for me! however: why would anyone want to sponsor this blog?). If you’re interested in what’s going on at Magnum and what it’s like to be part of that crowd, have a look at Martin’s experiences.
