LOOKING FOR AMERICA
In May 2011, five Magnum photographers – Paolo Pellegrin, Jim Goldberg, Susan Meiselas, Alec Soth and Mikhael Subotzky – and a writer, Ginger Strand, headed for Austin, Texas. Two weeks and 1750 miles later, they arrived in Oakland, California. In 2012, the agency’s photographers chose Rochester (in the state of New York), city of Kodak and Rank Xerox, as a yardstick for the United States a few months out from its presidential elections.
LE MILO DU SOIR / THE EVENING MILO 1/4
Christian Milovanoff, photographer and teacher at the École Nationale Supérieure de la Photographie d’Arles since its inception, has played a major role in all the classes that have graduated during the school’s 30 years. Every evening at the Théâtre Antique, he will give a performance/critical lesson about different photographic genres, four stories that so preoccupy photographers: the portrait, classification, memory, words.
Since 1979, the Leica Camera group has been awarding a prize honouring Oskar Barnack (1879–1936), inventor of the Leica and father of today’s photojournalism. The prize goes to a photographer whose work encapsulates humanity’s relationship with its environment. The Leica Camera group also offers a further prize, the Leica Newcomer Award, for a photographer under the age of twenty-five.
