This week there was a lot going on, I’m in quite a trouble to sum all that up with only a few articles. Here comes the list:
- How to prepare for university admissions portfolio interviews. “Avoid clichés and just be yourself. The most important thing is to let your personality and passion shine through your portfolio and interview.”
- Sony World Photography Awards 2014 youth and open winners – in pictures. The winners of the youth and open categories in the 2014 Sony World Photography Awards.
- Highlights of the National Photographic Portrait Prize – Gallery. “The National Photographic Portrait Prize is held each year with the aim of promoting the best professional and amateur photographic portraits in Australia. (…) check out a selection of the 45 finalists”
- The Photographer’s Gallery top 10 photography blogs. I did not have time to check them all out but most certainly it’s a promising catalogue when some time need to be killed.
- 30 Under 30: Women Photographers. You can argue whether it’s needed to have awards for women only or not. Still, you can’t discard them. Utami Dewi Godjali is my absolute favourite.
- Nan Goldin: ‘I wanted to get high from a really early age’. “(…) it’s not just about hope and joy. Kids are sad, too, and angry. It’s really about the autonomy of being a child, about flexible gender and freedom, the wildness in children that gets hammered down as they grow up.” A long piece that’s worth the time. However, there is a “loophole for” the lazy ones: Nan Goldin’s photographs of children – in pictures.
