Articles on Issuu

So I'm finally getting to grips with Issuu which I delved into as an experiment for a lecture I gave - it proved really easy to use. Here are some pdfs of old articles on Raghu Rai,  Trent Parke, Paul Graham and   A Shimmer of a Possibility.

I've also uploaded old features on Elaine Duigenan, George Georgiou, working with NGOs, Reuters, Daido Moriyama (especially Memories of a Dog), Kampung Komodo and Mao's birthplace. There's my MA dissertation on Loretta Lux and Children in photography, writing and photography on childhood in Year Zero, and an interview with  Robbie Cooper

Thank you very much for sharing all these, Colin! That article on Komodo is especially insightful, as people's opinions here in Indonesia are currently divided over the park's involvement in that seedy New 7 Wonders of the World competition.

Thanks Wid - I saw that and it looked kind of seedy. The story is old but I'm sure the confused morass of opportunism and corruption messing up good people's lives and environments is still the case. What do you photograph in Indonesia?

Wid said...

I guess you could say I'm simply documenting the city I live in (Yogyakarta), as there are so few photographers doing that here. Currently I'm focusing on its physical growth, specially the quickly changing outskirts. I'm sure this topic is nothing new, but quite often I'm told that Indonesian cities' development defies western urban planning theories so I want to see how much different it really is.

Interesting - I used to live in Jakarta and I loved (sort of but not really) the unplanned and un-designed architecture and the way people lived in and around it. Have you got a link, Wid?

I haven't got a proper website at this moment nor have I posted this project anywhere on the web, so I'll send you an email.
