"If I could tell the story in words, I wouldn't need to lug around a camera"
 - Lewis Hine



This week I happened across a Photographer who shoots the economy - currently in the UK. If you ever wondered what Economy looks like - and what the recession looks like - in the Photographic sense then wonder no more. Simon Robert's has it captured. What really struck me though, aside from the complete normality and sometimes mundane life that made the photographs, was the comments on the Article that I read about Simon. The BBC Wrote about him yesterday and nearly all the comments were from people advocating boredom. The Irony is that Simon Robert's had, in full colour, photographed our lives. And the general consensus was that it was dull and unimaginative. How very English we are.

Community Relations News


Another edition of the LOL Corner has been put together by the fantastic deshrubber

<Uni77>Don't you just hate it
<Uni77>when you buy a bag of air at lunch
<Uni77>and you get chips in it?

We've said farewell to ikazon and haldron from the Community Relations Team these past few weeks! But they're not leaving us completely - both Hunter and Trevor have got themselves a dollar! (Which means they're now full time awesome staff!) Congrats guys! :love: Check out this Article for info on name changes and new staff!

Have you ever wondered how to host a successful contest on deviantART? Well as part of her dA Life Series TanyaSimpson has Written a guide exploring just that!




Spotlight Deviant DariaPitak


DariaPitak was reccomended to me by Astralseed and I was certainly not disappointed when I arrived in her gallery! Emotion was my first thought - most of the deviations capture emotion in some way shape or form, even without showing a complete face.

Photography Books


This week I'm introducing a new feature of Photography Books. I don't know about you, but I love having a few books on the shelf that I can leaf through that contain inspiring works from across the world. Well this week I'd like to draw your attention to The Photographs Not Taken a book of Photographers Essays by Will Steacy.

It simply explores exactly what it says on the cover - those photographs we, as photographers, didn't take. Those times that photographers didn't use their cameras and instead made a picture using words. Basically Literature and Photographer community combine!
