"Urgent… Have possibility of taking photos… Send film" -Auschwitz 1944

Is looking at photographs like those of the bloody birth of Bangladesh (possibly NSFW? one photo is of corpses) "an ethically and politically necessary act that connects us to our modern history of violence?" In The Cruel Radiance: Photography and Political Violence, Susie Linfield challenges the idea that photographs of political violence exploit their subjects and pander to voyeuristic tendencies. An excerpt.

where the wild things are

Wilder Mann - photos of traditional animal costumes of Europe, by Charles Freger. Also in National Geographic, and in the New York Times' Lens Blog:
“These traditions come from Neolithic times — from shamanism — and they have never stopped,” said Mr. Fréger, 38. “For a few nights you can behave like a goat, drink a lot and forget about being civilized. You can be a wild animal for three days and then you go back to controlling your wildness.”

She Who Tells a Story

I feel creatively emboldened to personally say something on the subjects that I am documenting. In terms of how it is produced, intellectually I am more excited than I have been in years. I am envisioning so many more possibilities for the work ... I feel for first time empowered on my own terms. We are calling our own shots and have created somewhat of our own institution.

Art in the Tumblr age

"Artists often cling to control of their work and the context of its display, but to interact with Tumblr, they must give up that control. Art on Tumblr might get seen by many people, but 1,000 reblogs doesn’t mean anyone will be looking at your art next week, know that you made it, or be having a critical discussion. Given these reasons, it would make sense for artists to be wary of putting their work on Tumblr. But this isn’t always the case; a younger, more internet-savvy generation has embraced the web 2.0, feeling that the costs outweigh the benefits." -- Ben Valentine looks at Tumblr as art, in the opening essay of the world's first Tumblr art symposium, which can be followed on livestream.

Parnassien de coeur.

In the heart of the neighborhood of Montparnasse,
live the memories of a forgotten photographer: Émile Savitry.
In 1930 he was with Django Reinhardt and in 1939 He photographed the Spanish refugees who migrated to Perpignan after the fall of Barcelona.
He photographed some of the movie sets of Marcel Carné and Pigalle and Anais Ninn.
In 1945 he photographed Tahitian soldiers of the French Pacific Battalion and later 1950's fashion. For those who read French here is a little more about him.

Two tastes that taste great together

"Metaldudes Cats Book challenges stereotypes of masculinity and the metal culture in general. Now... I think we can all agree that cat photos and videos are a pretty integral part of the internet these days, so it feels a little pointless to describe why you might want to look at more cute cats. DUH! However: Metaldudes Cats Book combines three loves that have a global reach: Kitties, Metal, and Duuuudes." Although metal and cats are not a new combination on the internet, photographer Alexandra Crockett wants to take metal + felines to the next level. The AVClub has more.
