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.

Our Picks of the Pics of the Year #1: Underfoot

Click for full size

I’m seeing some really offbeat photos making it into many of the 2010 “top photos of the year” galleries that are starting to pop up everywhere. This one, in particular (from The Big Picture), begs for commentary.

Can any of you relate to this?

If this site is a worthy part of your day or your life … if you feel this “persuasion society” absolutely necessitates sharper visual consumers … if you feel independent photojournalism must survive beyond the whim of corporate media … I’m asking each of you to make a tax-deductible contribution of at least $20  … or more if you can … to sustain The Bag. Each $20 you contribute also buys you a raffle ticket for prints and photo books signed by Bag’s contributors, and entry to our NY party if you’re somewhere near Brooklyn on the 29th. Click here to donate, to see what’s in the raffle, and get directions to the party, . Thanks so much for helping us grow!  — Michael.
