As I mentioned before, I’ve got a new feature going on on Phaidon.com every Tuesday where I round up the week’s photography stories. The second instalment went out today and takes in 70 photos for 70 years of Paul McCartney, tin foil cameras, MoMA’s new chief curator of photography, the Australian Vivian Maier and Philip-Lorca diCorcia gives his tips on surviving the art fair marathon.
Here’s an excerpt:
Eugene Richards goes solo – again Celebrated photojournalist Eugene Richards, who first became known for his project Dorchester Days, has left Getty owned agency Reportage. It’s not the first time that Richards has gone solo, a member of Magnum Photos for over 20 years he left the agency in 1994 only to rejoin and leave again in 2006. Richards joined Reportage in 2010 after a short stint at VII Photo. It’s unclear whether he intends to rejoin Magnum, VII Photo or to remain a solo act.
