OpEd: Appreciating Straight Photography

“But… what of those who work today with equal commitment and sincerity, using straight photography in the cacophonous present? I will not name names here, but for these serious photographers the fog of time still obfuscates their efforts, and the blindness j’accuse some of the art world of suffering from, narrows their options.

Book: V.I.P by Mark Alor Powell

My friend and frequent LPV contributor Kramer O’Neill recently made a trip to Mexico.  While there he participated in one of Mark Alor Powell’s photography workshops.  Near the end of his trip he responded to an email I’d sent him with: “I got you an outstanding little gift in the DF.  Don’t let me forget […]

I was discussing her work with James the other night and I said that it made me feel like […]

OpEd: Some New Work From….

“Here we are now, entertain us” Since I started LPV and began following photography on the web, I’ve been keenly interested in the way that photographers publish and present their work.  Often you’ll see a blog post pop that says, “Photographer X has some new work on their site” you should check out.  I never […]

January, 2010 Show – One of Everybody

©Erik Borst Everybody by Marie Sheppard Williams I stood at a bus corner one afternoon, waiting for the #2. An old guy stood waiting too. I stared at him. He caught my stare, grinned, gap-toothed. Will you sign my coat? he said. Held out a pen. He wore a dirty canvas coat that had signatures […]

All we have is now! by Pierre Wayser

Sicily by Dalton Rooney

©Dalton Rooney I enjoy these quiet black and white photographs Dalton Rooney made in Sicily.  I want to say these have a Japanese feel to them but my knowledge of Japanese photography is to thin to make such a statement.  I also recommend Dalton’s blog, third nature which focusses on landscape photography.
