This week we have a gallery call for local photographers, a beautiful piece on a South African dance studio, and some thought provoking images of violence and hate.
- Honfluer Gallery placed out a call for artists to create a photography exhibit in the downtown offices of a law firm. They are looking for “Photographers who currently live in DC, VA, MD. All levels of photographers are eligible to apply. Photographers who have limited exhibition experience are especially encouraged to apply.”
- Positive Exposures, who who we interviewed in June, released their final work for Dance For All. Go watch the multimedia piece on their blog, it is worth your time.
- Brilliant recycled Onion piece about a teenager getting into photography. I hope there were lots of brick walls and train tracks on that roll.
- Photographer Anthony Karen earned the trust of members of the KKK and created a moving photo series. You can read his interview with FotoEvidence or download his book made for the iPad in the iTunes store.
- In other weird photo KKK news, the city of Tulsa kept a street name the same, but changed it from honoring a Klan member to honoring photographer Matthew Brady.
- A Reuters photographer was shot in the foot this week covering the events in Cairo.
- Freelance photographer Mosa’ab Elshamy shared his very disturbing images from the aftermath of the violence in Egypt. Warning that these images may not be suitable for everyone.
- In big cat news, Saturn has a tiger moon.
- The Massachusetts State Police Photographer who released the photos of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s capture is back at work after a suspension.
