So, what’s new in the new year regarding photography?

For starters, one news item in my mother language

NRC : Rel om foto’s Defensie bij Zilveren Camera (Article NRC about nominated photos for Dutch photo journalism award “Zilveren Camera”, category “foreign documentary”, which were sent in by an army photographer and not a press photographer…).

Martin Parr : How to put photography in the frame. Article in The Independent.

Guardian : Egypt to copyright the pyramids and antiquities ?

Some good news. The trend to reduce museum entry fees !

In Belgium and in Sweden museum fees are being reduced. Good news for all art lover. I found out when I went to see the =now passed exhibition= of Nan Goldin in the Hasselblad Center – Gothenburg. I still paid the same entry fee but I may re-use my ticket for one year, in several museums.

B.T.W. I was very impressed by Nan Goldin’s work.

Photo competition : POYi competition. Call for entries, closing this Friday.
