A new photography show, set to open this weekend at Owen Sound’s Tom Thomson Art Gallery, is intended to depict a “different side of dementia,” organizers say.
“People have a perception of dementia that as soon as you get it, you are unable to do things or remember things or you go immediately into a retirement home and that’s just not the case,” project co-ordinator Chris Doyle of the Alzheimer Society of Grey-Bruce said in an interview Thursday.
He said it’s still possible to live well and learn new things after receiving a diagnosis.

Martin Luther King Jr.’s assassination was just one of the “apocalyptic events” of 1968, as TIME would later put it in a special report on the significance of the year, published for its 20th anniversary. The magazine compared the events of that year to a “knife blade,” that “severed past from future.”

Street photography didn’t start with Henri Cartier-Bresson. Louis-Jacques-Mandé Daguerre, Charles Nègre, and other predecessors were capturing the comings and goings on the Boulevard du Temple in Paris and beyond in the 19th century. A detailed history of street photography was first collected in a 1994 landmark book called Bystander, by artist Joel Meyerowitz and curator Colin Westerbeck; Laurence King Publishing is releasing a newly revised edition (available November 7), featuring 27 additional photographers, a new chapter devoted to digital photography, and a historical revisit. From the publisher’s press release:

While travel photography is very appealing for a variety of reasons, such as being able to visit different and exciting places, there are some potential downsides to shooting in new locations. Even if you scout locations ahead of time online, you can’t ever know a new place like you know your favorite local photography spots. As photographer Thomas Heaton puts it, travel photography can feel like a “whistle stop tour,” meaning you often visit a lot of locations in a short amount of time, never being able to dedicate enough time to each spot.

Whether you are just starting out or you have been shooting for years, pricing is always top of your mind. For a long time, I just plucked figures out of the air, which made for very awkward conversations when clients wanted to know various ways to save money on a shoot. I eventually got my arse in gear and had a long (like a week-long) sit down and I went through everything in the smallest detail. Today, I give quotes with confidence, knowing that if a client says no, I am simply not the photographer for t

Photographer Andrew Kahumbu visited The Treehouse in Ipswich where he met four-year-old Henry Barnard, 10-year-old Lewis and Euan Morley, also ten, and caught a glimpse of the activities enjoyed by patients at the hospice and their families.
Around 120 children with life threatening conditions are currently being cared for at the centre – and Mr Kahumbu said it was a humbling experience to witness the work of East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) volunteers first-hand.

I have been a wedding photographer since 2002.
I was 24 years old when I started my business.
I took out a loan to start my business. A small one. I remember the man at the bank talking to me like I was a child when I was setting up the paperwork. He told me that if it didn’t work out, I could always “stay home with my kids.”
I normally don’t cover topics like this.
Not because I don’t believe they exist or that I think they don’t need coverage.
I don’t usually cover them because I try to find the “good news” or celebrations within the arts and travel that I love.
However, I find it especially important in any area that is about expressing a POV – a way someone sees the world – that these issues are critical.
How is the “normal” part of the world ever to be expected to understand how others who are “different” or a “minority” are experiencing the very same world if those “others” are not allowed to share their view.
It is through this very exposure that things will one day, hopefully, become more balanced – more fair – more “normal” for all of us. Until each voice, each view, each expression is given the same opportunity for exposure – with the same megaphone or platform – we can not expect those in the “normal” world to ever learn that there is indeed another view, another way of experiencing the same world – and often, it is not pretty nor fair.
