Legendary photographer Jay Maisel offers advice on how to take better photographs, including tips on how to be a more successful street photographer. Maisel recently published Light, Gesture & Color (New Riders press), a book "for people that are tired of bullshit books that tell them exactly what to do, and so they get rote results," he told PDN.
Before Martin Parr retired from leading his popular workshops, he held a final session last summer at the Magnum Print Room in London. Over one weekend, Martin worked with fifteen participants, critiquing and developing their respective bodies of work, their creative practices and their artistic identities. But it was more than just your average educational workshop, as Martin opened up his studio to the group, presenting an overview of his extensive career, sharing practical tips on the editing processes, discussing marketing opportunities and revealing many of his trial-tested tricks of the trade.
Lucky for Martin Parr fans, or really anyone looking to learn from one of the world's premiere photographers, the entire experience was taped and is being made available exclusively on Vimeo. The weekend workshop, cut down to just under two hours, is pure Martin Parr -- a uniquely edifying experience from the visual master of the ridiculous, the mundane and the ridiculously mundane.

The Boston Consulting Group has partnered with world-renowned photographic agency Magnum Photos and designers Kram/Weisshaar to create a cutting-edge exhibition to celebrate its 50th anniversary.
BCG has asked the authors to engage in a collaborative effort to interpret and translate its Game Changing program (produced in collaboration with Edelman PR) - five sets of actions for companies in an age of economic restructuring and rising uncertainty - into an impression of the fundamental societal shifts that will impact our collective future.
Five Magnum photographers documented the personal, human impact of these conditions in 10 locations on five continents: Alessandra Sanguinetti in Bogota and Silicon Valley, Alex Majoli in Lagos, Abu Dhabi and Doha, Jonas Bendiksen in Istanbul and Stockholm, Olivia Arthur in Mumbai and Shanghai, and Gueorgui Pinkhassov in Jakarta and Seoul
Entitled Now is the Time this exhibition, conceptualised and designed by Clemens Weisshaar & Reed Kram and curated by Martin Parr, is visiting 30 international cities.
