The creative website of the franco-German TV channel Arte has started a great little weekly series of interviews with 'emerging' photographers entitled Picture this! The interviewees are not the usual suspects (I will confess I only recognised 2 or 3 names on the list), but it's the format of the interviews that is the real hook: the interview follows a standard 10-question format which is to be answered... in pictures. This often leads to visual gags, but it's interesting to see how the character of a photographer can emerge from such a small selection of pictures.
I have just done a short guest post over on the fototazo blog. fototazo has asked a group of 50 curators, gallery owners, blog writers, photographers, academics and others actively engaged in photography to pick two photographers that deserve (more) recognition - the underknown, the under-respected as well as not-appreciated-enough favorites. For my guest post, I selected Marie Quéau and Erik van der Weijde. Check out the post here.
