In January I went on assignment for Monocle magazine, shooting for a Taiwan supplement that has just been published in the March issue of the magazine. While it was mostly interviewing and photographing people and specific places, there were a number of photographs that were outside the scope of the planned feature. This month’s desktop calendar is one of those, showing some of the countryside along Taiwan’s beautiful east coast. As always, it’s available in a range of different sizes.
Now, time for some links to some of the various things I’ve come across in the past week. Don’t forget that the newest release in the Craft & Vision series of photography eBooks is out. Andrew S. Gibson’s “The Evocative Image” can be had for just $4 until the end of the day on the 28th, or $5 after that. Click here to visit Craft And Vision.
Speaking of the 28th, here in Taiwan it’s a national holiday for Peace Memorial Day. I’ll be covering the ceremony which should result in a good series of photographs, so stay tuned throughout the week to see some results.
Last week I posted a series entitled Of The East in response to David Sanger’s Images of Faith. Now Tom Bourdon has jumped in with his contribution entitled Global Faith. Head over to his site and take a look at it and spend a bit of time browsing his website. Tom’s just had a double truck spread in National Geographic Traveler magazine so offer him some congratulations while you’re there.
Staying in the realms of travel and world photography, Mitchell Kanashkevich has just started photographing a story on fishermen in the Philippines. Goodbye Boracay, Hello Deep Blue Sea is the first look at his new project and it’s starting off fantastically. Well worth following.
Trey Ratcliff should need no introduction, famed as he is for stunning HDR photography. He recently put together a multimedia piece titled 80 Days – 8000 Photos. This is a very well executed creative work and should be a must-see. Check it out.
Over at The Light Without, Stuart Sipahigil discusses the metaphorical Santa Claus in photography and offers thoughts on the gear vs vision concept that seems to prevalent these days. Believe Again makes some great points and gives you some food for thought.
