"PhotoVoice’s vision is for a world in which everybody has the opportunity to represent themselves and tell their own story PhotoVoice’s mission is to build skills within disadvantaged and marginalised communities. To achieve this, we utilise innovative participatory photography and digital storytelling methods. These skills enable individuals to represent themselves and create tools for advocacy and communication. Through this, and through developing partnerships, we deliver positive social change."

Henrik Spohler | Photography | Hatje Cantz
"Henrik Spohler (*1965) addresses the relationship between human beings and flora in his photographs. He inquires into such matters as the conditions under which food is produced and the landscapes civilization shapes in the process. The images present a global view of endless fields of cultivated plants outdoors or under glass or plastic: areas in Spain, Holland, Germany, and the United States where standardized products flourish under industrial conditions. Photos of research institutions provide even more insight into those places where new breeds are constantly being created and tested, places where man himself ultimately becomes the creator, using genetic technology in order to give the plants even more profitable features."

Digital Learning Is Like a Snow Leopard (Real, Beautiful, Rare and Maybe To Be Outdated by a New Operating System) | Easily Distracted
"What gives a digital camera a special kind of capacity for auto-didactic learning? Two things: speed and cost. As in fast and none. Add to that an unusually robust communicative infrastructure for sharing, circulating and viewing photographs, so that aspirant photographers will always have a very large, responsive community of fellow learners available to them."

Pics, shoots and leaves: Ecologists turn digital cameras into climate change tools
"As digital cameras become better and cheaper, ecologists are turning these ubiquitous consumer devices into scientific tools to study how forests are responding to climate change. And, they say, digital cameras could be a cost-effective way of visually monitoring the spread of tree diseases. The results -- which come from 38,000 photographs -- are presented at this week's British Ecological Society's Annual Meeting at the University of Birmingham."

A Hipstamatic Moment -- In These Times
If Hipstamatic hangs in and establishes itself as the go-to digital snapshot brand, it could double as a parable of commerce for the flat-world age: an industrial-era end-user experience without benefit of a workforce, a community or a pension plan.

[1103.6038] Searching for comets on the World Wide Web: The orbit of 17P/Holmes from the behavior of photographers
"We performed an image search on Yahoo for "Comet Holmes" on 2010 April 1. Thousands of images were returned. We astrometrically calibrated---and therefore vetted---the images using the system. The calibrated image pointings form a set of data points to which we can fit a test-particle orbit in the Solar System, marginalizing out image dates and catching outliers. The approach is Bayesian and the model is, in essence, a model of how comet astrophotographers point their instruments. We find very strong probabilistic constraints on the orbit, although slightly off the JPL ephemeris, probably because of limitations of the astronomer model. Hyper-parameters of the model constrain the reliability of date meta-data and where in the image astrophotographers place the comet

Astronomers Calculate Comet's Orbit Using Amateur Images From The Web - Technology Review
"This sudden brightening triggered a huge wave of interest from astrophotographers all over the world, many of whom posted their images on the web. To find out how many, Dustin Lang from Princeton University in New Jersey and David Hogg at the Max-Planck-Institut fur Astronomie in Heidelberg, Germany, searched the web. They found 2476 different shots of Holmes.

That's a significant astronomical database that represents a huge amount of work. But is it any use?

Today, Lang and Hogg use these images to work out an accurate orbit of Comet 17P/Holmes, a significant achievement given that the data is taken from an ordinary web search and its provenance is entirely unknown."

APOD: 2011 March 8 - Titan, Rings, and Saturn from Cassini
"How thin are the rings of Saturn? Brightness measurements from different angles have shown Saturn's rings to be about one kilometer thick, making them many times thinner, in relative proportion, than a razor blade. This thinness sometimes appears in dramatic fashion during an image taken nearly along the ring plane. The robot Cassini spacecraft now orbiting Saturn has now captured another shot that dramatically highlights the ring's thinness."

Identity: how little we actually change over time
"I think these images are fascinating, because they support the experience I’ve made through biography writing, namely how little people actually change over time. They have an identity (from ‘identidem’: repeatedly, continually, constantly). In spite of many attempts in the humanities and social sciences over the last dacades to deconstruct the notion of individual identity, people usually remain the same over decades."

Trainset Ghetto - The Morning News
Boarded-up windows in abandoned brick buildings, grass growing from sidewalk cracks, rusty storefronts—the cycle of a city’s evolution and abandonment is familiar. Artist Peter Feigenbaum reimagines these ghettos in miniature, using components from toy train sets and more. “‘Trainset Ghetto’ is voyeurism more than it is hobbyism. It is the physical byproduct of teenage suburban daydreams and attempts to live vicariously through an alien post-urban 1980s landscape that was in no way part of my quotidian existence.”

Peter Feigenbaum is a Brooklyn-based installation artist and musician. He has shown work related to his “Trainset Ghetto” installation at a number of small New York galleries since 2007. He studied architecture at Yale University.

Are Cameras the New Guns?
In response to a flood of Facebook and YouTube videos that depict police abuse, a new trend in law enforcement is gaining popularity. In at least three states, it is now illegal to record any on-duty police officer.

Flavorwire » Blog Archive » Daily Dose Pick: Richard Barnes
Barnes has spent over a decade cataloging the way we amass, conserve, and display elements of the natural world. His new monograph, Animal Logic, matches his images of the objects behind an exhibition — “partially wrapped specimens, anatomical models, exploded skulls, and taxidermied animals in shipping crates” — with counterparts from the real world inhabited by living wildlife.

Five New Rules for the Photoshop Era | Open The Future | Fast Company
If you're annoyed by the "birther" churn, get used it--this kind of political hack is here to stay. It's easy and effective. Cheap digital tools make the work of faking official documents, "candid" images, and behind-the-scenes videos readily possible, even for rough amateurs.
