One of my favorite photo books is The Bitter Years, featuring FSA pictures (and especially Dorothea Lange's) of Great Depression USA. Saw an exhibition of these in Paris a couple of years ago, and boy what a sucker-punch - photos really moving you to the core.


Came across this brief article on the FSA collection on Casual Photophile - which led me to google the collection - and you can check this link to the collection in the Library of Congress, and this one to the New York Public Library's own collection.


Completely unrelated: Hoda Afshar's dreamy, evocative images from islands off the coast of Iran.


Life Framer photography prize winners, from the Guardian; I'd never heard of them - here's their own website.


And a nice little camer geekery article, featuring the Nikon FM2, on The Phoblographer.
