Dragon Day Photos

Here are a couple of my favorite pix from the Dragon Day Races in Cambridge. I like the movement in the first - the ribbon, the dancer's crossed legs, and the body of the lion.

The second puzzles me a little. I'm not exactly sure what I like so much about it. I like the look on the girl's face, the fact that hers is the only face shown, and the hand leading her. I found it very difficult to take pictures of moving subjects and I struggle with issues of privacy and consent when it comes to snapping photos of people in crowds. I wonder whether other photographers have struggled with the same issue.

Jen Davis, Photographer

Photo by Jen Davis

This photograph, 'Untitled No. 22' is from I understand she has a photograph included in the Photographic Figures show over at the MFA. I keep meaning see that show... now that I know Jen is included, I'll make the effort. I really admire her photos. She has a beautiful eye for light. Some of her nudes feel sculptural. Many of her shots are posed, but somehow manage to maintain a sense of intimacy and honesty.

NPR Article featuring James Balog

Fresh Air from WHYY, March 18, 2009 · Intent on documenting the effects of climate change, nature photographer James Balog ventured into ice-bound regions with 26 time-lapse cameras, which he programmed to shoot a frame every daylight hour for three years.

The resulting images — which make up Balog's "Extreme Ice Survey" project — show ice sheets and glaciers breaking apart and disappearing.

Balog calls the melting of glaciers "the most visible, tangible manifestations of climate change on the planet today."

A documentary film crew accompanied Balog, and their footage along with Balog's work will be featured in the Mar. 24 NOVA and National Geographic special Extreme Ice. Balog's photographs are also on display in his new book Extreme Ice Now: Vanishing Glaciers and Changing Climate: A Progress Report.
