Peter Menzel Photography

I just read a good interview of Peter Menzel, a wonderful photography (National Geographic, GEO Germany, freelance) on Phillip Greenspun’s photo.net site.  He talks mainly about how he broke into the photography world, why a degree in photojournalism from Boston University was useless to him, and comments on the letdown that being a NG photography was.

He produced an interesting book, called Material World, which depicts families from around with world pictured with all of their material possetions or a week’s food.  His inspiration was drawn from an NPR broadcast speaking about Madonna’s then-recent top-selling biography, which was followed up by the pop singer’s Material World song.

Check out the links to Peter’s gallery.  I found the Kuwait oil fire photos especially interesting.  There’s a photo of the prince touring an oil fire 3 years after the fire initially began!

Underbelly of Veteran's BridgeWe went on a subway/bridge tour this weekend and I was able to snap some cool pictures of the Veteran’s Memorial Bridge.

The content of the self-guided tour wasn’t all that interesting, but the architecture, tones, and textures of the bridge made for some pretty interesting pictures.
