When the media keeps on stealing...

Here an other example of press use on a photo without the author's consent or even telling about credits, Alarab Online a major media core in the Arab world, has been using several photos from all over the web, I knew this photo for long and I was disgusted the way they use it with any professional procedure.

the photo belong to DECLAN MCCULLAGH as part of his Tunis street photography set.

we have seen a lot of this all around the Tunisian newspaper but i was never expecting to see the same stupid use in a so know worldwide paper.

Picture This: Caring for the Earth | Picture This: Caring for the Earth is a photo contest seeking out positive images documenting ordinary people on the African continent and their work to mitigate or prevent the consequences of climate change and environmental degradation. While the poorest in developing countries are often the first to feel these effects, they are also the true experts and potentially the most powerful advocates for protecting their own environmental future.

Such quality contests are worth spreading the work, I invite you all to give it a try.

7th International Meeting

PROGRAM
.
.


Les Rencontres Internationales de la Photographie de Ghar El Melh no longer an event, they entered the habits of Tunisians, as the Festival of Carthage, or Kélibia Mahres. The most notable being the name of the shortcut, if you go to Tabarka is to listen to jazz, El Jem to enjoy Symphonies at Ghar el Melh is obviously photography that s question. Ghar el Melh, a majestic fort, a peaceful village, a beautiful beach ... the guide would be incomplete without Encounters returning for the seventh consecutive year, beating the record for longevity in an international event, held in Tunisia, reserved exclusively to photography .
.
Exhibitions
We always think to question the very idea of state. It must be said that since the beginning of the twentieth century this has always made the same way. Exposure is simply framed photographs distributed by a certain logic in a well lit room. Attempts have not failed to revisit this tradition, but it all boils down to this procedure because the secular important to look at a photograph takes precisely this confrontation between the viewer and the photographer, the latter through his work.
This year too we will witness a variety of looks, enhancing the imagination and a clear desire to imagine a different world. The photographic opportunities this year are even richer, the systematic practice of staging, or put into life, to the world as it stands, the public will be invited to be among these possibilities. This year Fetart, Association for the Promotion of Contemporary Photography, based in Paris, offers exhibitions of great class for our greatest pleasure.
.
Carte blanche to collectors
After photographs of Mustapha Bouchoucha Victor Sebag, Soler and some anonymous we continue this year the discovery of photographers who have completed the photo album of Tunisia. This year Beit el Bennani us to be cognizant of the expertise of a professional photographer. Photography by Gilbert Van Raepenbush, sober, not without artifice, but with much rigor in the composition and framing, is a lesson in photographic technique.
.
Round tables and discussion: "Controversies still ..."
(Hamideddine Bouali, critic and historian of photography)
The exhibition was great stir in Lausanne in 2008, it was talked about in the catalog of meetings last year. Scheduled again this year in Paris, she was more appreciated and organizers added a subtitle: "Stories in Pictures", played on the polysemy of the term history. A visual reminder of these photographs in the history of photography but have also been subject to criticism, often virulent, the audience will discuss issues that photography has always been. The question is whether this is an integral part of this medium off-standard or of a social debate that a day will definitely exceeded?
.
The Nocturnes
Photography lessons will be an opportunity to see and hear how the photographers talk about their colleagues. Photographers invited or selected to present this seventh edition, with photographs, works of their colleagues they like, which influence or which are similar. Opportunity to attend conferences novel, where the photographs will be better appreciated as used in conjunction with the inclinations of the author.
Other photographers submit their work to criticism and debate in the presence of connoisseurs. Appointment to be unique in today's landscape photography. The Nocturnes, a portfolio light not to be missed.
.
Workshop for children and adults
In photography children Ghar el Melh are spoiled anywhere else they may consider an exhibition gallery as a playground like this that is happening in their village. So we decided to familiarize themselves with other activities that serve to further refine their tastes and preferences. They will design, sculpture, reuse of household waste and to comment on the film they just watched. Five days of multidisciplinary activities after the end of the school year, children not deserve all, a table of honor for their creativity?
.
Le Corsaire: Meetings of the newspaper and Radiography
Le Corsaire, the newspaper of the Meetings will accompany this edition by a radio, which will not pirate. The silence of the fort will be pushed by the waves of the station, which will issue its programs for the benefit of visitors. Le Corsaire Graphie and Radio will be there to give news, conduct interviews, make the weather so that we will add the photographs and his writing ...
.
Pixelmania
Karim is unbeatable on digital, the ownership, maintenance of cameras, file transfer and improvement on the graphics ... It always has a trick to avoid the return of your materials to after-sales service, the best way to make you more efficient with a premium, and word games and a smile staggering. Enjoy it's free.

Workshop "How and what to expose? "
Led by Natalia Jaskula and coordinated by Hamideddine Bouali, this workshop is for photographers participating in this edition. It is often difficult to choose among those photographs which could constitute a coherent whole. It is not just a matter of common theme or a technique, but the search for harmony. The corpus consists of photographs represents the work done and likely to become an exhibition. It would be desirable that participants be accompanied by a portfolio, in the form of photo prints for books, CDs, or display on laptop.
.
After midnight
On one edition to another, only the moments, impressions jealously guarded, memories and the catalog. If the catalog is the support of each issue, listing the photographers and animations organized, only references to the unique atmosphere of Ghar el Melh will know what this event actually is. After midnight is one of the appointments that are most unlikely. No program, no invitation, no time only certainty: The beach of Sidi Ali el Mekki ... This is all alone and it is magical. In recent years this component of the program wonder where people are meeting, we reserve the surprises that a director can not predict ... In fact after midnight is the magic of Ghar el Melh gift.

The photo theme and aulity is far beyond awfyl, but as I see they didn't have much choice to give an award in aso narrow field. This bring the Tunisiain photojournalism gain down to the sewer, but who cares?

Google satellite photos to be taken in a Week

No Comment - Post a comment

In one week, on Wednesday next at exactly 10h 42 'GMT, (attention Tunisia do more time in line with Europe, so it is 42 hours Tunisian 09h), the satellite "WorldView-1 will be over in Tunis for a photograph that serve ten days later to occupy the old Google Earth has become obsolete. I found five years ago on the internet the timetable of shots of the satellite and thought me a photo because I took that position at the precise moment when the satellite was pointing his lens towards me. The resolution used at the time too low did not allow precise identification and was reduced to a tiny point. A pixel corresponded to 1.8 meter and I was not big enough to be included!

We all see the wanton carnage and loss of innocent civilians in Gaza on our television screens, in newspapers and on the web. We also learn that the Israeli government has denied access to Gaza for the world’s media despite its country's Supreme Court ruling otherwise.


A great article by the [travel photographer Tewfik El Sawy].
