Time & space in photography

  • In honor of George Eastman‘s 153rd birthday (today), Slate features an interesting Magnum photo essay on the history of consumer picture-taking.
  • If Eastman were still with us, he’d make a great model for Mark Story’s Living in Three Centuries: The Face of Age. [Via]
  • Spanning 35 years to the day, Nick Ut brought the world a girl burned by napalm & a girl burned by herself.
  • Peter Kaplan shoots from great heights, including some eye-watering shots from atop World Trade Center. [Via]
  • Elsewhere in the air, in Me and My Human Vincent Laforet has captured a striking image from above the ice rink in Central Park.
  • Wired hosts selections from Edward Burtynsky‘s documentary about China’s superhuman rise & the human consequences thereof.  [Via David Harradine]

    These links are really great! I love the photo essays, and the Chinese factory pictures really surprised me… I don’t think I knew about the extreme conditions people live in there – their lifestyle seems so pre-formatted and robotic. It’s made me feel lucky to live in a free country (I guess I shouldn’t complain about traffic!)

    I have a question. I have to write about space in photography , and it’s hard to me to find some detailed themes about it. I’m a student of graphic design and I need it for my master work. Thank you.
