Remembering veterans who committed suicide through photographs of where they lived
Originally posted by Program Exerpt:

After decades of war reporting, photojournalist David Guttenfelder came home and realized that he had only covered one side of the story.

“I spent pretty much my entire adult life living outside of the United States and I was a combat photographer," Guttenfelder says. "I spent the entire Afghanistan war working in Afghanistan, working in Iraq, working with servicemen and women.”

But he wondered what was happening when those men and women came back to an entirely different life at home. After years of life on the battlefield, how were they adjusting to their lives after war?

“I discovered this shocking statistic: 22 American veterans [were] killing themselves every day in the United States,” Guttenfelder says. It’s important to note that exact statistic has been debated. But no one disputes that veteran suicide rates are rising far too quickly.

Making Art Out Of Bodies: Sally Mann Reflects On Life And Photography

Originally posted by Program Summary:

Photographer Sally Mann is fascinated by bodies. In the early 1990s, she became famous — or notorious — for her book Immediate Family, which featured photographs of her young children naked. Critics claimed Mann's work eroticized the children, but Mann says the photos were misinterpreted.

"I was surprised by the vehemence, I guess, of the letters and the dead certainty that so many people had that they understood ... my motivations and feelings and who my children were," Mann tells Fresh Air's Terry Gross. "People feel like they understand the children just by virtue of looking at the pictures but ... those aren't my children. Those are photographs of my children. They're just a tiny, tiny moment slivered out of time, a 30th of a second."

Israel and The West Bank through Fresh Eyes
Originally posted by Program Summary:

A dozen internationally acclaimed photographers were set loose in Israel and the West Bank. Most had never been in either place before. The aim was to try to see anew a part of the world that's been thoroughly photographed, long mythologized and often fought over.

Catching the Big Waves with Surf Photographer Sachi Cunningham
Originally posted by Program Summary:

When big wave surfers tackle waves, Sachi Cunningham is often right behind them, bobbing in the ocean with nothing but a camera and a wetsuit. The water photographer and San Francisco State University professor has traveled the world, capturing images of pro surfers. She talks to us about her work, why there are so few female surf photographers and her documentary projects -- including one covering ISIS in Iraq.

Artist Uses Tintypes to Update Images of Klamath Falls Tribes
Originally posted by Program Summary:

While Ed Drew was deployed in Afghanistan, he created tintype photographs of his comrades — the first known use of the tintype process in a combat zone since the Civil War. Drew’s recent series, “Native Portraits,” depicts members of the Klamath, Modoc and Pit River Paiute tribes of Northern California and Southern Oregon. The series is currently on exhibit at the California Historical Society in San Francisco. We speak with Ed Drew and curator Erin Garcia about the exhibit and media representations of Native people.


Sample images posted now, audio will be available for download tomorrow.

Views From Aloft: The Art of Space Photography

Great interview at Science Friday ...

Originally posted by Link Abstract:


Astronaut Don Pettit took the millionth photo from the International Space Station. He also took hundreds of thousands of other photos. Many of them were routine photos taken during safety checks and engineering troubleshooting. But he shot a trove of others while off-duty, from the seven-windowed Cupola of the Space Station, capturing scenes both celestial and terrestrial.

Pettit has gathered some of his favorites in a new book, Spaceborne. He joins Ira to talk about the challenges of pursuing photography in space, what compels him to click the shutter, and why art has a place in an astronaut’s mission.

Starry nights and empty streets in Idlib: PHOTOS
Originally posted by Program transcript:


At night, Idlib, Syria, has a wondrous glow. In fact, the atmosphere is so stark that the stars appear especially bright. It looks sleepy, peaceful.

But the rebel-held city, where the streets are eerily quiet once darkness falls, may soon be in harm’s way — as the possible next target of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s military offensive.

Idlib was bustling with people before the Syrian war began in 2011, but now, few residents venture outside their homes at night.

Photographer Builds a "Photo Ark" for 6500 Animal Species (and counting)

Originally posted by Program Summary:

National Geographic contributing photographer Joel Sartore is 11 years into a 25-year endeavor to document every captive animal species in the world using studio lighting and black-and-white backgrounds. So far, he's photographed 6,500 different species, which leaves approximately 6,000 to go.

Sartore tells Fresh Air's Terry Gross that presenting the animals in the studio, rather than in nature, gives them equal importance in the eye of the viewer. "A mouse is every bit as glorious as an elephant, and a tiger beetle is every bit as big and important as a tiger," he says. "It's a great equalizer."

Sartore chronicles his project in the new photography book, The Photo Ark ...
