99% of Street Photography is crap

Blake Andrews’ blog is one of the best and most extensive blogs about street photography on the web. I’d like to suggest his article Streetwise. 99.98% of street photography is crap, he says. And I think he’s 100% right. Read the article + comments here.

Really interesting interview with WorldPressAward2008-Winner Tim Hetherington about his film ‘Restrepo’ (together with Sebastian Junger) and the present and future of photography and visual journalism on lens.blogs – don´t miss.

Festival for young photojournalism

2010/06/21
Thomas Lobenwein

This weekend I have been at the Festival For Young Photojournalism in Hannover, Germany where 60 pieces of journalistic photography and several examples of audiovisuals were presented to an audience of about 20.000 people in five days. One can say that was a big success for high class photojournalism, which was said to be nearly dead in times of digital picture flood and a suffering press. But the ability to tell a story through fascinating images of high quality is still attractive to people who like to get good information from  journalists who want to show what’s happening in the world. More and more these journalists find ways to get independent of publishers and present their work in self-published books or as audiovisuals, tools who allow them to spread their work without editorial restrictions. The quantity of amazing quality shown in Hannover gives confidence that ambitious photojournalism is not dead, but rising like a phoenix… And hopefully some near day these photographers can again earn enough money for their living.

LONDONERS by Christian Reister

First we take Berlin then we take London. Just got the message that my LONDONERS series will be part of Slideluck Potshow in London this saturday. Fortunately I’ll be in London anyway so I’m very much looking forward to the event. Check SLPS Website for details.

Polish photographer visits Wales. Guess what he is interested in? – No, you are wrong! – Maciej Dakowicz from Bialystok in North East Poland was only interested in getting a few snaps of local life during his stay in Britain. What he found was so astonishing that even a hardboiled Polish guy couldn´t believe it. See what he experienced in Cardiff (and read the story about on Mail Online).

Thomas Lobenwein / Ringen / at FENSTER61 Berlin

“Ringen / Wrestling” by Thomas is now on display at my photo exhibition window FENSTER61. The exhibition lasts until July, 16th. If you are around Torstraße, Berlin, make sure to see the original prints. If not, see the series on thomas-lobenwein.de or fenster61.de. I think “Wrestling” is definitly one of Thomas’ strongest works so far.

‘I am a Photographer, not a Terrorist!’

2010/06/10
Thomas Lobenwein

Read an interesting article (in German) on the current issue of “Der Freitag” (German weekly web-magazine) about street photography in times of terrorism and surveillance. Different photographers out of history and present time of street photography are quoted with their own explanations of what it means to take pictures on the street, their working styles and experiences of how photographers are treated there. – If you like to take pictures on the street you know how difficult it is today to do so.

… just got the link to the original article by Sean O’Hagan. Thanks Christian.
