There is a wonderful online mag/blog which is quickly becoming a reality:
The blog is about concerned photography. The goal is to showcase the photographers and images that exemplify the humanistic elements of reportage, as well as the issues surrounding the production, distribution, circulation, and reception of these images.
My fiancee, Joanna Bernstein is editing the contributions, and so far she has Jose AZEL talking about the industry; Stefan ZAKLIN on ‘that’ photo; Franco PAGETTI talking about photography in Iraq and the act of being a photographer; and yours truly on the state of photography. Jamie WELLFORD, Marcel SABA, Tom STODDART are among others who will be adding contributions in the near future.
An outlet that exclusively addresses issues like this in photojournalism doesn’t exist to date, so please check it out and leave comments if you’re inspired or angered or confused or whatever. It is a place for discussion, so discuss.
As you’ll see it is attached to a â‚¬20,000 prize (plus possible exhibit and book) for concerned photographers.
