I had a bit of a deja-vu feeling with some of Pablo Lopez’s photos (more of them here), but for me, that didn’t make me like his work less. (Thanks for the tip, Kelly!)

This review addresses an interesting point: “One can find a subject, but how do you make it more interesting than what was photographed.” I haven’t seen the book (or the show - yet), but I occasionally had similar thoughts about other books or shows.

I haven’t linked to much “alternative photography” (let’s call it that, lacking a better term), simply because most is just not very interesting (to say it diplomatically - I realized my original phrasing was a bit too harsh). Curtis Mann’s work I like a lot. In a day and age where you can do everything with Photoshop, it’s great to see someone transform actual photos with stuff like bleach. And it’s particularly noteworthy to see how his approach does succeed to make connections to more traditional art forms - where digital photography often fails miserably (by producing kitschy video-game aesthetics).

“Journalists often call publicists ‘flacks’ and publicists call journalists ‘hacks,’ though rarely in earshot of one another. But the gloves came off last week after Chris Anderson, the executive editor of Wired magazine, chided ‘lazy flacks’ who deluge him with news releases ‘because they can’t be bothered to find out who on my staff, if anyone, might actually be interested in what they’re pitching.’ (story) You can find an interview with Chris Anderson about the story here. Highlight: “I was particularly amused when PR people attempted to organize a class-action lawsuit against me - in my own comments! That’s in addition to publishing my home address and hacking my Wikipedia entry. Turns out that PR people can be very effective when they want to be - I only wish they’d targeted me so efficiently on behalf of their clients, rather than just for themselves.” And then there’s a discussion about the situation in commercial photography here.

About his project Alone at Sea, Grant Ernhart writes: “Alone at Sea is a collection of photographs from my ancestral homeland in Sweden and from Minnesota where I grew up. The images depict not only the specific geographies of these two places, but also my exploration of the landscape as a site for the connections between home, history and personal identity. The images are a record of my response.”

Robert Lyons’ portfolio is quite diverse, with a lot of work done in Africa.
