I couldn’t skip publishing this tsunami like list of photo collections from the best photos of the last year. At the end of the year picture editors at every most publications have an urge to make galleries that look back on the events of the year passing by. This year is no different in this regard so I too created my collection of these selections made by others – just like I did in 2013, 2012, 2010, 2009, etc…
This time at the end of the year there are all sorts of reckoning about the passed year. One of the saddest of these is the statistics how many journalists were killed, jailed or exiled for their work.
The Battle of the Bulge was seventy years ago in this period of the year. CNN now remembers the anniversary with the pictures of the world famous Hungarian war photographer Robert Capa.
I met more of these lists on the web. I even wrote some of them and probably I will do so in the future too. This time I don’t want to list movies or documentaries about photographers. I rather try to collect some of the movies whose visual wold, picture style or other visual solutions can inspire photographers.
This happens when a drone flies too close to an offensive kangaroo.
I meet this question more and more often. People tend to ask it next to photos and other things shared in social media. They not only ask for the likes or thank it in advance but they try to provoke it: “how many likes this picture is worth?”
The popular Big Picture gallery of Boston Globe will be published at a new domain with a new look from now on. After six years and almost a thousand galleries with large images the Big Picture is renewed. They moved to a new domain and built a completely new look – it’s a shame their old stuff (at least a part of it) can be seen only in theory.
One of Instagram’s most popular photographer with 232 thousand followers feels a need for transiency and renewal thus he plans to delete all of his pictures published until now. His pictures can be seen only until december 6th in 2014. After that you can never see them again. I don’t question his rights to do this, but the sense of this action.
It is a nice Christmas present from the director of popular nature documentary that Wild Hungary – Empire of Waters is made free to watch for everyone.
