The Shah brothers, Anup and Manoj, both exceptional photographers based in East Africa have a new website that you must check out. I absolutely love their work. Now to buy a print from them … ahhhh
Chai anyone? Bangladeshi photographer Ihtisham Kabir sent in a link to his series of portraits of tea plantation workers in Chaklapunji. Kabir’s presentation is simple and clean and it should load very quickly in your browsers. The second frame in the series with a lotus flower erupting out of the child’s head is my favorite for some reason.
photobetty has many great portfolios of some of the best photojournalists in the world. As the name suggests, the site is a meeting point for women photographers but men interested in submitting work can do so if the content is “centered on female issues.”
EVE Photographers, “is, first of all, the result of a common aspiration: to mobilize each of its member’s photographic approach and interpretation of the world in order to provide an original and powerful series of work.”
Too busy to read books? What a shame. But the web comes to your rescue with Daily Lit where you can get 5-minute morsels from a variety of books. When you are done with your daily dose you can ask to have the next installment sent to you. Pretty cool and yes, this might just prompt me to buy an iPod.
Ok, this is geeky, but since we all blog (we do don’t we?) this may be useful to you. I stumbled upon Texty via TechCrunch. Texty is an online service that produces code you can embed into your blog. So what, you say. Well, sometimes you want to get your HTML just right and inserting text and images can be tricky. This is where Texty comes in. It simplifies things. Give it a whirl. I am going to bookmark and use it.
