One would think that the first image ever posted on what was to become the omnipresent, omniscient, World Wide Web or the interwebs as we now call em, would be something geeky, nerdy, technical, technological. I don’t know, banks of computers, circuit boards, chips, ram, recording media – something…specially since it originated at CERN – […]

This iconic image of the Vietnam war, which won Eddie Adams a Pulitzer Prize, is often depicted in black and white terms: “A bad guy shooting a good guy” or “a good guy shooting a bad guy” but the actual story behind the images has numerous shades of grey. Not many can adequately explain the […]

It’s time for some Sunday Silliness Trained as a photographer, Terry Border left the commercial world for story-telling. His complex vignettes are made of the simplest, everyday items: a jar of spices, a cigarette stub, a flower, a snack food.

I followed him, collected cuttings of his photographs from magazines – primarily Life & Look, I think…although his images also regularly appeared on the front pages of most newspapers worldwide.  There was a time I actually wanted to be him and adopted his […]
