    Check out what is happening in the photography world this week!

    1. In honor of Kodak's ten year anniversary of its first digital zoom camera,

    DC Views has compared elements of photography from when it was a 'digital science' to the 'easy sharing' aspect of today.

    2. In a timely web 'service' offering Military personnel are remembering their time in service with photo books offered specially by the Military Yearbook Printing Company....but sometimes uploading pictures to a website can be extremely complicated.

    3. Hollywood photographer David Strick is suing the Los Angeles Times for illegally publishing 174 of his photos.

    The law suit could potentially cost $150,000 for each infringement, and there are 510 alleged violations!

    4. When David Strick seemed to deliver too many photos, wedding photographer Gerald Randolph Byrd didn't deliver enough.

    In fact Byrd refused to hand over the photos and is now serving two years of house arrest for fraudulent intent. The original sentence was eight years in prison.

    5. But on a lighter note National Geographic has announced the "Best Travel Pictures of 2011" and they are incredible.

    The Annenberg Space for Photography knows how much you enjoy our exhibits and lecture series. So to make sure you stay updated on the current happenings in the world of photography, we have complied a list of stories for you to check out!

    Our friend from PhotoInduced recently posted some interesting information about new developments in the realm of photography.

    The iPhone is trying to make it into the photography world by creating an adapter that will take high quality pictures straight from your phone. Nonetheless photo induced has remained skeptical considering the Mac track record with its gadget lifespan.

    In other news, the world record may have been broken by a massive photo book created by The Brand Union and Lambie-Nairn. The Big Book once complete will be 7.9 tons (including two tons flooring weight and 14 metal frames @ 300KG per section) and will contain 100 pages, is 4m wide and 2.5m high. That's a big book!

    In the spirit of big and ground breaking photography, NASA has taken its first ever up-close details of a Saturn storm, which just happens to be eight times the surface area of Earth.

    A new photography technique that has people asking some serious questions about boundaries is public photography. Artist Kyle McDonald put a secret camera in public computers in hopes to create a project about people relationships with technology.

    And for tips on how to make a boring event something to look at, check out Scott Chernis's advice on event photography!

    Hope this jump starts you into a productive hour of searching the web and looking at amazing photos!

    Juergen Nogai ( R) seen here with his wife, Jeannie ( C) and POYi/Water photographer and lecturer Gerd Ludwig ( L)

    When we caught up with Juergen Nogai (Julius Shulman's shooting partner) at our last opening, he told us about an amazing retrospective of Julius' (and also Juergen's) work. It was planned well in advance to celebrate Julius' 100th birthday. Sadly, Julius passed away in July of 2009 at the age of 99 leaving us with an impressive life-time of amazing work (see our tribute to him here).


    It was decided that 'the show must go on,' and the exhibit, which is the most complete collection of Shulman's work to be shown in one place, opened in October of last year (Julius' 100th birthday would have been 10/10/2010). It's called "Cool and Hot" and it will run until February 27, 2011 at the ZEPHYR Gallery in Mannheim, Germany.

    While it might not be likely for you to see this exhibit before February, Juergen did mention that it is likely to hit the road for a mini-tour. We can hope that it makes its way across the pond to us, but so far it doesn't look like that's in the cards. We'll keep you posted.

    Last month, The Los Angeles Times launched Framework, a top-notch photo blog we've fallen in love with. Not only are we big fans of the site but they're also big fans of the Space! They had nothing but nice things to say about the Space and our IRIS Nights lecture series: "The lectures are informative and entertaining and the space is spectacular — it simply engages you. In an odd way, I feel like I'm in an amazing home with the most incredible entertainment system and equally incredible photography in the hallways."

    Thanks for the kind words and great blog! We're hooked!

    "Recent Developments" is a new regular feature on the blog that will keep you up to speed on what's going on with photographers who have exhibited or lectured at the Space in the past. It will be a place where you can find out where work by these photographers is currently being exhibited and what new adventures they have embarked upon since we last saw them. We hope you enjoy reading these updates about our friends as much as we enjoy passing them along!

    The first photographer in our "Recent Developments" update is Douglas Kirkland, who was featured in the Space's very first exhibition, L8S ANG3LES, a show that that included such iconic photos of his as the one of Marilyn Monroe above.

    He was also our very FIRST IRIS Nights guest lecturer!

    The famed photographer is having his first major retrospective in Australia, titled "Douglas Kirkland: A Life in Pictures," right now! All of our Aussie readers should rush over to Brisbane's Gallery of Modern Art to check out.

    Aside from Monroe, photos by Douglas of Audrey Hepburn, Elizabeth Taylor, Judy Garland, Stevie Wonder, Jack Nicholson, Andy Warhol, Gabrielle 'Coco' Chanel and many others are included in the collection. Also, in what sounds like an astonishing addition, is a large set of photos taken on the set of Michael Jackson's "Thriller" music video. The exhibit closes on October 24.

    You can listen to an informative interview with Douglas conducted by the Australian Broadcasting Corporation about the exhibit here.

    Here's Douglas at the opening of our Space standing between our fearless leader, Wallis Annenberg, and L8S ANG3LES photographer Greg Gorman, along with other exhibiting photographers like (clockwise) Carolyn Cole, guest curator Anne Wilkes Tucker, Julius Shulman, Kirk McKoy, our Foundation co-director Gregory Annenberg Weingarten and Tim Street-Porter.

    Keep checking back on the blog for more "Recent Developments!"

  • /the-shot-blog/kate-orne-may-you-never-be-uncovered


    Kate Orne - our 48th IRIS Nights lecturer - came to the Space to share her research on victims of the Pakistan sex trade. For over four years Kate has been documenting this dark demimonde and its oppressed population.

    Kate's collection of images represents a fragile and honest portrayal of the women and girls living in Pakistan's brothels. Her work is the result of developing long term friendships, trust relationships and complete, non-judgmental acceptance between her and her subjects.

    Kate's presentation was frank, direct and - surprisingly - humorous! A highlight from the Q&A was Orne saying, in reply to how Pakistani men resolve being Muslim and going to prostitutes: "there is something stronger than religion, and that is SEX! Everyone wants to get laid!"

    But going beyond the humor, Kate expressed a powerful personal passion and eagerness to resolve a history of abuse where women are forced into sex trade - and yet she also demonstrated a gentle and compassionate tone discussing these victims who continue to work the sex trade without force.

    Kate encourages those interested in learning more to visit her website. To protect the identity of the subjects photographed, the images shown during the presentation will not be posted online.

    Guess who came to the Photography Space?

    SMILE! It's Steve Fine from SI!

    In the 'green room' before his lecture Steve paced claiming he was nervous, but you would never have known it once he started his lecture. Steve was alternately brash, funny, informative, inspired and inspiring.

    Here's Steve's brash, funny, informative, inspired and inspiring dance:


    brash

    funny

    informative

    inspired

    inspiring!

    He brought with him some amazing produced and scored slideshows of the 2010 Olympics:

    and regaled us with tales of 9 staff photographers, too little snow, too many pictures and the magic of putting it all together in real time like no one but Sports Illustrated can.

    Steve's lecture was the final IRIS Nights talk during the SPORT: Iooss & Leifer exhibit, and his powerful presence drew quite a few luminaries including (surprise) Mike and Kitty Dukakis!

    Steve - showing absolutely no signs of his alleged pre-show 'nerves' - was an ever-gracious speaker/host to all,

    ...including Lucy Nicholson from Reuters (who also lectured here),

    ...more than half of his 9 photographer staff, and even the illustrious and incomparable Howard Bingham!

    All in all we were treated to a highly entertaining and amusing evening.

    Thanks Steve!
