Featuring various discussions and a directory of working women in the States and Internationally.
The site is a work in progress and more links will be added soon.
Contact info is on the site, Kimmy and everyone involved did a killer job.
I continue to get emails about this, so just to reiterate, I was not involved in the making of the directory or the selection of the artists, it was handled by a group of female photographers. Contact info is on the site if you’d like to contribute to the site or provide feedback.
Reblog and spread the word to keep the conversation alive!
Today Robert Capa, if were alive, would celebrate 100 years old.
To celebrate his centenary, International Center of Photography has just released, for the first time, the only existing recording of his voice.
You can hear Capas voice here. ”Bob Capa Tells of Photographic Experiences Abroad” was broadcast on October 20, 1947 on the 8:30 am morning radio show “Hi! Jinx.” The interview was part of the press relations surrounding the publication of Slightly Out of Focus, his autobiographical novel chronicling his adventures during World War II published by Henry Holt and Company that year.
Happy birthday Capa, photojournalist and writer!
Do people see the absent work, or do they see a piece of material? What do they see inside the frame? In a museum, a frame is rarely empty. So it’s something very unique.
"What do you see?", Sophie Calle, 2013
You can read the interview here, between Melissa Harris (the Editor-at-Large of Aperture magazine) and Sophie Calle, about the new body of work that will be presented (as well as the project "Last Seen", 1991) at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum this month.

The impulse of categorizing, indexing, controlling and understand information. Is the human instinct to seek order in the chaos that surround us?
Pretend You’re Actually Alive (2002-2012), Leigh Ledare
Erotic images of the photographer’s mother. Ledare photographed his mum and her sex partners for ten years. In the book, the photographs are accompanied by handwritten text such as descriptions of the men his mother met (“Gonzo porn king”, “the horni rabi” or “feisty fireman”) or gifts she has been showered with - all to draw the viewer further into the intimacy they “share”. The book shows Ledare’s underlaying preoccupation with the power politics of politics of sexuality and a thorough examination of human, wild intimacy.
You can read an amazing article from the Guardian here; and buy the book here. And here you can see Leigh Ledare talking about some of his other works on relationships between men and women, and their audience.
