There are a number of good videos of different TED talks on their website. David Griffin’s ideas of photography are clear and deft, you would expect that from the director of photography at National Geographic.
She speaks about “The Innocents” and “The American Index of the Hidden and Unfamiliar”
From the TED website:
“With a large-format camera and a knack for talking her way into forbidden zones, Taryn Simon photographs portions of the American infrastructure inaccessible to its inhabitants.”
Susan kae Grant and everyone else at Texas Woman’s University have selected Corey Keller, from the San Francisco Museum of of Modern Art, to be the juror for the annual Joyce Elaine Grant Photography Exhibit. They are using Slideroom to handle all of the entries this year. This is an affordable and worthwhile exhibit. The deadline is Oct. 27, 2009.
