Photo News: Richardson gets called out – is coming – Civil Rights photographer dies – Magnum accepting portfolios

Posted by liveBooks

Pretty much everyone in the fashion photography world has heard the stories of Terry Richardson‘s on-set shenanigans, which almost always involve someone getting naked (the model, him, or both), inappropriate sexual overtures, and outrageous comments. When a model finally came out on a blog and talked openly about how degrading the experience was, the story spread like wildfire around the blogosphers — and Rob Haggart at A Photo Editor gives us the play-by-play.

Websites ending in “.com” may soon be a thing of the past, replaced by “.canon” if the camera company has their way. Canon “announced Wednesday it intends to be the first company to say goodbye to .com and buy its own top-level domain, taking advantage of ICANN’s decision to broadly widen the number of top-level names,” according to a Wired article on Wednesday. The repercussions of the ICANN ruling will undoubtedly be staggering, and it’s interesting to see Canon taking the lead.

Photographer Charles Moore, an Alabama native who made striking images that helped define the southern Civil Rights Struggle, died on Tuesday. His work includes images of the integration riots at Ole Miss in 1962, the fire hoses in Birmingham in ’63, a Ku Klux Klan rally in North Carolina in ’65, and he was the lone photographer at the scene when King was arrested in Montgomery in 1958.

Magnum is once again accepting portfolio submissions from photographers interested in joining the oldest, most prestigious photographers’ collective, the British Journal of Photography reminded us on Tuesday. Photographers have until May 15 to submit their portfolios of up to 80 images for consideration to become a “Nominee Member” of Magnum.
