Now that the initial flood of images from Haiti is subsiding a bit, photographers and bloggers are taking the time to go back and analyze the coverage from a visual perspective. It seems indicative of our shortened news cycles that we’re already looking back a few weeks after the deadly earthquake, but we’re happy to see it nonetheless. The most focused analysis happens on the BAGnewsNotes blog on Sunday February 7, when creator Michael Shaw will be hosting a “salon” titled “Haiti Aftermath: A Look Back at the First Week” with professors Loret Steinberg, Nathan Stormer, and Fred Ritchen and photographers Alan Chin, Erin Siegel, Aric Mayer, Tim Fadek, Chris Hondros, and Willie Davis. Chris Hondros has also shared his reflections on his time in Haiti in this slideshow for Foreign Policy and Colin Finlay discussed working in the country during a live event Thursday on LinkedIn.
Shepard Fairey is once again in the news since a judge announced recently that he’ll face criminal investigations after admitting in October that he “knowingly submitted false images and deleted others during the case in an attempt to conceal the fact that the AP had correctly identified the photo that Fairey had used as a reference for his ‘Hope’ poster of then-Sen. Barack Obama,” according to The Los Angeles Times.
