Photojournalism thread

Postby prophet:marginal on Tue Feb 13, 2018 3:20 pm

The online editions of papers often have some brilliant photo's and collections.

Here is a thread just to collect together them and similar ideas.

Kicking off with East London in the 60's and 70's:

The vanished East End

The one of the Stifford Estate (Stepney) is my favourite. I have it on good authority that Sid Vicious briefly lived there when he was a kid.

One of my favourite photographers, Don McCullin, did a fair bit of work on the East End:

I worked in Whitechapel High Street from 1974-75 when a lot of those photos were shot.
The place certainly was full of characters,most of whom slept on the streets.
In those days places like Whitechapel up to Gardeners corner were amongst the few places where you would encounter tramps (as they were called back then).
These days they seem to be on every provincial high street.
Brilliant stuff on that site, I particularly enjoyed the 'Found Images' section.

Mushy, was Booth House open in those days? Was that the local 'attraction' for them, as such?

EDIT: New collection : The photos that changed America: celebrating the work of Lewis Hine

That one of the blokes constructing the Empire SB... sheesh!

yes it was Proph, they seemed to wander from there up to 'itchy coo park', where the modern catholic church is by Gardeners corner, then back down towards Stepney going the other way.
I worked in a bookies at the time and when it was cold we used to have to spend half the day turfing the poor buggers out.
I am loving all those old photos.

And just to name drop, was in New York last week and saw quite a bit of Lewis Hines whilst there.

Anyone know of any good sports/football journalists? Up-and-comers rather than established.

I was just looking at Cornish football landscapes

Some crackers in there.

Football through the lens

Here's a head-scratcher...

In the mural depicting Best, McIlroy and others, the face at bottom right has been obliterated and the player's name crossed out. Anyone offer any ideas as to

(a) who the bloke was, and
(b) why this fate befell him?

(edit, you'd spoil it, if you read the comments below the pics)

This possibly also belongs in the Documentaries thread elsewhere, but has relevance here:

Just finished watching a film called "Smash His Camera" about the legendary paparazzo Ron Galella. Well worth a watch, especially with regard to such questions as where does photojournalism become intrusion into people's personal lives. Galella is a remarkable subject, you hate him, but can't help loving him too. Directed by Leon Gast (When We Were Kings).
