Agencies and Photographers | 3 July 2012

Magnum Photos have a new website, which I personally found to be, sadly, anything but an improvement…slow, confusing, and most annoyingly all the old links don’t seem to work anymore…

Magnum Photos

Institute have relaunched their website too..

Photographers

I never used to be too interested in portraiture, but recently I’ve found myself looking at portrait photography quite a bit.  Brigitte Lacombe is one of them. She’s a photographer, whose work I often see in Newsweek (The Martin Amis photo seen below was printed in last week’s issue). I didn’t know anything about her though. Only having visited Lacombe’s website did I realise that she is in fact somebody who has been around for a long long time. Live and learn…
