“The Photo Review is a critical journal of international scope and readership. Publishing since 1976, The Photo Review covers photography events throughout the country and serves as a central resource for the Mid-Atlantic region. With incisive reviews, exciting portfolios, lively interviews, the latest in books and exhibitions, The Photo Review biannual journal has earned a reputation as one of the best serious photography publications being produced today. Our writers — including A.D. Coleman, Stephen Perloff, Shelley Rice, Peter Hay Halpert, Barbara L. Michaels, Jean Dykstra, and Mark Power — have weighed in on subjects as varied as the posthumous publication of work by Diane Arbus, women in photography, the growth of digital media, the historical movement from Pictorialism into Modernism, etc., etc. In his ongoing series, “The Censorship Diaries,” Editor Stephen Perloff was in the forefront in covering the controversy over funding for the NEA and censorship of the arts.
The Photo Review has earned a reputation for lucid and incisive writing aimed at an intelligent and informed audience, but free of the cant and jargon that infects much contemporary writing about art. Thus, both arts publications and the popular press have looked to us for interpretations of what’s happening on the photography scene. Articles have been reprinted in such publications as Afterimage, To, Photography in New York, American Photo, and others.
Editor Stephen Perloff, a respected writer, educator and photographer, has been interviewed for The New York Times, The Toronto Globe & Mail, The Wall Street Journal, the Philadelphia Inquirer, Photo District News, and the New York Observer. He has received two critic’s fellowships from the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts and the Colin Ford Award for Curatorship from the Royal Photographic Society.”
Most (many) photographers concentrate on one theme area…landscape, nature, birds, theater, and so forth. But the truth is a photographer must branch out if for nothing else than honing his or her skills. Although my main concentration is landscape, I sometimes photograph ballet, birds or still-life to sharpen equipment and lightingskills. Birds can be a test of your reflexes, focusing skills, and concentration, while ballet forces you to think about low light and the accompanying noise in an image taken at ISO 5000. Just a though.
We all go through it. Over the years we accumulate old camera lenses and bodies that gather dust on the shelves. It’s time to clean off those shelves and make a little money in the process. However, if you are like many of us you will probably plow the money back into more equipment and accessories. A great place to buy and sell equipment is MPB | Buy or Sell Used Cameras & Lenses of Brooklyn, New York. I’ve used them over the past several years and firmly believe their trade-in and sale values are fair. The process is easy to use so give them a try…and, no this is not a paid commercial.
MPB Reviews: Buy Or Sell Used Camera & Lenses (photographytalk.com) is a good review of MPB.
Step back in time to 18th and 19th century America. Great photo opportunities.
