WHEN PICTURE APPROVAL GOES BAD : Busy week in Paris on a great assignment for a client. The post shoot approval process was a bit tricky though… (at Aérodrome de Lognes-Émerainville)

Aaron Huey: America’s native prisoners of war

Photographer Aaron Huey’s effort to photograph poverty in America led him to the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, where the struggle of the native Lakota people…appalling, and largely ignored…compelled him to refocus.

Five years of work later, his haunting photos intertwine with a shocking history lesson in this bold, courageous talk from TEDxDU.

Before they pass away: Jimmy Nelson at TEDxAmsterdam

With his pictures, photographer Jimmy Nelson documented 35 unique tribes in 44 countries around the world. He shares his stories about the connections he made and the lessons he has learned from these travels.

The British travel photographer started his career in 1987 by traversing the length of Tibet on foot. From that moment on Jimmy Nelson set out to document the world’s last indigenous cultures, which are rapidly disappearing. He accumulated images of remote and unique cultures photographed with a traditional 50-year-old plate camera. He became a guest of 35 secluded and visually unique tribes in order to document this all in his book Before they Pass Away, an ongoing project to record the cultures of isolated tribes.

David Bailey’s East End. I saw this exhibition twice, once in the Royal Docks when it opened in a giant converted docks warehouse, then later at the William Morris Gallery up in Walthamstow. I can remember these blunt, tough, colourful East Enders when I first started work in London aged 18, being part of the first ‘Yuppie’ (basically anyone who wasn’t a cockney…) influx working in the area, once the docks had all gone & they were about to start work on converting the deserted Isle Of Dogs into the high rise metropolis it is today. It’s a brilliant piece of London history. I love the fact Bailey went into the pub with a 35mm & a flash & papped the locals, in their environment. They all looked like they loved the attention too.

By plane, photographer Simon Roberts was able to “chase” the sun to experience a perpetual sunsets.

Roberts embarked from Reykjavik, Iceland in late February, when the days are long but the sun still sets that far north. Flying in the opposite direction of the Earth’s rotation, he was able to capture 24 distinct sunsets in the same day due to the changing time zones.

The Colors of India

“There are some parts of the world that, once visited, get into your heart and won’t go. For me, India is such a place. When I first visited, I was stunned by the richness of the land, by its lush beauty and exotic architecture, by its ability to overload the senses with the pure, concentrated intensity of its colors, smells, tastes, and sounds. It was as if all my life I had been seeing the world in black and white and, when brought face-to-face with India, experienced everything re-rendered in brilliant technicolor.”
