Gio and I have been watching a lot of good photographer interviews and multimedia presentations. Magnum In Motion is one of the best producers of the multimedia content. Great sound, photographs and narrations. Here are a few that are rad:
The Taliban – Thomas Dworzak
The Taliban ruled Afghanistan from 1996 to 2001. It’s strict version of Islam allowed no photography or any depiction of Mammals. All men were required to wear a beard and women were no longer allowed an education and forced to wear burkhas.
Picnic With A Gangster – Bruce Gilden
After the Soviet Union fell apart, the big shots once in charge of organized Russian crime vanished, either dead or unleashed through the world, and small potato villains have survived on the periphery of large cities in a now cleaned up Russian wild West.
Gangster Types and Tough Guys – Bruce Gilden
Bruce Gilden’s black and white imagery is reminiscent of the film noir he used to watch on TV when he was a child. Ever since, he has had an attraction for tough looking characters, bad guys and their acolytes and the underworld where they operate.
Georgian Spring – Alec Soth
“So for my visit, I decided to go looking for the most beautiful woman I could find. Over the course of several weeks, I traveled the entire country. In a small Northern village I found N., the most beautiful woman in Georgia.”
