Up to now, images would only give you remote information in a passive way. More than often, they illustrate an accompanying article, with no more duty than to confirm what you are reading. As much as the photographer or publisher tried, it was a view and forget operation. No so anymore. Thanks to new technology, Read More →

Photography has always been about Time. and Space.  When one presses on that button, both are frozen, captured and can thus be delivered elsewhere in Time and Space. That was then. The makers of the GigaPan, a machine that takes multiple images of a scene with various focal lengths in order to reconstitute it into Read More →

Always a late entry in the continuous flow of photographic awards, the Pultizer is still a very a very, very honorable one to receive.
