As long as there have been cameras, those using them have felt inclined to capture the buildings around them. 

The Getty Museum in Los Angeles just launched an incredible exhibition that shows the unique relationship between photography and architecture.

The Picturesque Relationship Between Photography and Architecture

Photos by Eugéne Atget (top) and Louis-Émille Durandelle / via Reddit

The one on top is my favorite photograph in the Charles Marville exhibit currently on view at the Met!

It’s going to be quite a while before I can share the DSLR photographs I took in Iceland with you, so for the meanwhile, here are some of my favourite Instagram shots taken during 5 days in this most magical of places. I cannot wait to return, and explore this treasure of a place even further… If you’d like to see more you can visit me @hellopoe on Instagram!

Video that accompanies Gideon Mendel’s Drowning World photography series. Now on view at ICP’s Triennial!

It presents my ongoing global project about flooding. Since 2007 I have visited six countries (The UK, India, Haiti, Pakistan, Australia and Thailand) that have been devastated by massive flooding. I have done this as an attempt to visually address the issue of climate change.

Today I tried to save a kitty and failed.

It ran away before I could get the last four digits of the phone number on the collar. I hope you find your way home, Rosie.

“When I shoot, I have an out of body experience,” Amelia [Coffaro, a freelance photographer who was diagnosed with breast cancer at 28] says. “I don’t feel afraid to know what the doctors are going to say.” By using Instagram, she feels that she has a more immediate and direct connection with others, allowing them to see her experiences in real time.”

Amelia’s friend and fellow photographer Elizabeth Griffin has also been documenting Amelia’s journey. Elizabeth’s photos combined with Amelia’s Instagram shots allow the viewer to not only see the struggle of a cancer patient from the outside, but also to feel and witness the struggle through the eyes of the patient herself.

The project, which they call “Project Amelia,” is meant to challenge assumptions about cancer — and to put a frame around the struggles faced by women with breast cancer.

You Are My Wild is a talented group of 14 photographers who publish a weekly portrait series of how they see their kids.

We talked with Meaghan Curry one of the founding members, and she gave us a little insight into how they started: 

“Right after the new year, and in sort of a creative lull, we were brainstorming about starting a project to force ourselves to put down our phone cameras down and pick up our other cameras more regularly…

Ironically, Instagram is the common thread between us. It is where we found other people documenting their children in really loving, beautiful and respectful ways.”

Afghanistan’s Wakhan Corridor

Afghanistan’s Kyrgyz nomads survive in one of the most remote, high-altitude, bewitching landscapes on Earth. It’s a heavenly life—and a living hell.

A book of Matthieu Paley’s photographs of the Kyrgyz, “Pamir: Forgotten on the Roof of the World” was published in October by La Martinière in French and Knesebeck in German. He is trying to get it printed in English, too.

Photographs from his two latest trips in 2012 are featured in the February 2013 issue of National Geographic magazine, accompanied by a story by Michael Finkel.
