The World According to PETER TURNLEY

Kosovar-Albanian refugees

Although Peter Turnley is renowned for documenting the human condition around the world, he has also photographed life and romance in Paris, his adopted home since 1975. His tender views of this city’s magnificence and beauty provide a vivid contrast to the harsh realities of his photojournalistic work. Turnley has captured most major stories of […]

Garry Winogrand’s body of work is as big and sprawling as the country he documented. It’s said that over two million people — roughly one percent of the U.S. population in the 1960s — were captured by his lens. Paging through the massive catalog accompanying Garry Winogrand, his current globe-touring retrospective, it stood to reason […]

I was about seven years old when my mother showed me a black-and-white photograph of a naked and emaciated child, in some book at the public library. For me, that moment was the start of learning about a much bigger and more serious […]

MARISSA ROTH: Chosen by a Project

Arifa Osmanovic, Lost 3 Sons in the Sebrenica Massacre. Potocari, Bosnia and Herzegovina. 2009.

Some photographers consciously choose what they want to shoot — landscapes, rodeos, city skylines, the faces of aging — but for a few, the creative process is reversed. The project chooses them. Their subject becomes an irresistible, driving force, propelling them forward for unfathomable reasons, even against logic, to shoot all dimensions and angles, no […]

Nick Brandt can just picture it: ominous clouds sweeping across the sky above dusty, arid plains. And somewhere in there, the face of the wild — whether it’s the look in a lion’s eyes, or sawed-off elephant tusks seized from poachers and now in the hands of rangers. “I have specific ideas in mind when […]
