THE SALT OF THE EARTH

SalgadoThe Salt Of The Earth is the title of a new documentary on the work of revered social photographer Sebastiao Salgado. The title also describes the man himself who has spent his life bringing the soul of the world’s outcasts to the forefront.  The documentary is by Wim Wenders and is co-directed by Salgado’s son Juliano Ribeiro Salgado, a team that is sufficiently close enough to the great photographer to provide insights unachievable by others.  You can watch the trailer for the film at http://www.firstshowing.net/2015/watch-trailer-for-sebastiao-salgados-the-salt-of-the-earth-doc/

COLORIZE

We love the timeless feel of good black and white photography, especially from the golden era of photojournalism of the 1930s to mid 1960s.  You can often wonder what it would really be like to have walked the planet then (as some of you may have).  Those were the stiff upper lip times of depression, world war and the epic disruption of whole populations.  Add color to some of those vintage images and you’ll get one level closer to the feel of the era.  This collection of colorized images will take you there.  Spend a little time on each image and ponder.  You’ll be transported.  http://www.stumbleupon.com/su/1PXleS/ovJD-d9g:Qz8Gcw$_/www.lifebuzz.com/colorized-photos/


AROUND THE WEB

Was That Taken With A Mobile Phone Camera? – Yes it was.  Apple is currently running an ad campaign that features really good photographs taken with the iPhone 6.  They’re worth a look.  But, keep in mind;  it’s the photographer not the camera that makes the magic.  https://www.apple.com/iphone/world-gallery/
