In their latest guest post, our friends at the photo management blog Photoventure pay tribute to eleven Magnum photographers who, often putting life and limb on the line, have done no less than change the world with the images they have taken.
There are lots of photography competitions out there, but few are as special as the opportunity we’re offering Digital Camera World readers.
We’ve partnered with the international sight-saving charity ORBIS to offer one lucky Digital Camera World reader the opportunity to put everything you’ve learned in our popular Shoot Like A Pro series to the test and do something truly meaningful with your photography.
Here at Digital Camera World we’re not afraid of courting controversy. OK, maybe we are a little bit, which is why we thought it was time to be bold. We’ve interviewed a number of famous photographers over the years and been inspired by each of them, but as many readers often ask us… “who are the best photographers of all time?”
We put on our thinking caps and took a stab it. Following lots of coffee and some heated arguments, we agreed on a list of the 55 best photographers of all time. In the history of the world. Ever. Definitely.
Todd Klassy has captured the real working life of ranches in Montana. His photography is beautiful and captivating, but also serves an important role in documenting the lives of working cowboys and cowgirls, whose ways of life are dying out due to advances in modern technology. Here, Todd talks about the story behind the photos.
The votes are in, and the World Press Photo of the Year 2011 award goes to Samuel Aranda from Spain.
Aranda, who was on assignment for The New York Times in Yemen, shot his image of a woman holding a wounded relative in her arms during clashes in Sanaa, Yemen, on 15 October 2011. The woman was inside a mosque being used as a field hospital by demonstrators who were clashing against the rule of Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh.
