No other site reviews and critiques news images as well as publishes original photography — all in the name of helping you become a sharper “visual consumer.” Are you bombarded by powerful images from the world of news, culture and social media? Sign up for our “Week in Re-View” and let us help unpack them for you. Other sites read the words. We read the pictures.

Upcoming

As a program note, I will shortly be taking my first break since last year.  For the week of “Semana Santa,” I’m going south, and I’m leaving my computer behind.  Not to worry though.  I have composed a series of eight posts, titled “Since November,” looking at particular images from the past few months, several keyed to the mid-term election and the power shift in Washington.  In that stretch, I leave the site — which I’m more than happy and comfortable to do — in your trust. 

I’ll be away from the 31st through the 8th (hoping that nothing overly newsworthy breaks while I’m gone).  When I return, I’ve got many things planned, including new original content from all my contributers, as well as a first in the blogosphere: a four day, on-line exclusive exhibition of Alan Chin’s photos from Campaign ‘04, with real-time curatorship, narration and commentary from Alan, his colleagues and special guests, and most of all, you. 

Once again, thank you so much for all your encouragement, thoughtfulness and participation in our ongoing project.  I’m more confident than ever about what we’re doing and where we’re headed.
