Les Stone specialises in chronicling, among others, the effects of war on the populations of several countries. During the last twenty years he has photographed in Iraq, Afghanistan, Israel, Kosovo, and many other places. In his website it is possible to see the work he created along the years.
Plrds.com, a website managed by Mike Brodie, gathers a number of photographers that use Polaroids as a means of expression. The number of different visions in this website deserves a careful visit. Additionally, Mike has managed to give also a physical shape to the project: he has already edited two volumes of "Plrds Series", a hand-made book that gathers images from the several members of the website. I received yesterday Plrds Series #2 and it has been a great way of finding very interesting images.
Through a post in "O Manancial da Noite", I discovered the website of photographer Edmund Leveckis, where he shows us his vision of his city. "New York in black & white, dark, pasty and grainy", says Tiago in his post - and he's absolutely right. I will definitely spend some time browsing through this website.
Among other galleries, Mark-Steffen Göwecke's website shows us an interesting set of panoramic photographs taken with a Horizon 202. Other of Mark-Steffen's curious projects is his polaroid gallery, in which each photo serves as the basis for the next one, in a big game of self-quotation.
On his personal website, Walter Pickering shows three photographic galleries - "Town Lake", which documents the "stretch of the Colorado River that runs through downtown Austin, Texas called Town Lake"; "Musicians", an impressive set of portraits of several musicians with their instruments, with a perfect use of selective focus; and "Mouse", a curious essay on a man "who wears a mouse head all day long"... Walter is also responsible for BeyondMonochrome, a weblog that deserves a detailed visit.
The photo archive of the French Ministry of Culture and Communication. On this website it is possible to browse through a very interesting collection of historical photographs, not only of France (which is naturally the country with the greatest number of images), but also from several other countries in the world - including Portugal.
