A Place of Our Own by Iris Hassid

Wonder Woman by Susanne Middelberg
Wonder Woman represents the American idealized image of justice, idealism, perfection and power. The character was created by William Moulton Marston in 1941, in the time of the Pearl Harbor attack, which caused America to join the Second World War. The first comic was a piece of flag-waving propaganda. The American flag is Wonder Woman's costume.

The Boys by Rick Schatzberg
When two of his oldest friends died unexpectedly, Rick Schatzberg (born 1954) turned to photography to cope with his grief. He spent the next year and a half photographing his remaining group of a dozen men who have been close since early childhood. Now in their 67th year, "The Boys," as they call themselves, grew up together in the 1950s in post-war Long Island, New York.

Best Modern Photographers of December 2020
What better way to improve your own work than to be inspired by others? I am absolutely convinced that discovering new portfolios on a regular basis helps educate your eye and have a better understanding of the possibilities that photography offers. Contemplating amazing images, in addition to being a pleasure, is a very good way to develop your "photographic eye", that little extra thing that will make your photos stand out. Each month we continue to discover incredible work from photographers that live and travel all around the world. Here is a selection of some incredible images of modern photographers for this month of December 2020 you can get some creative inspiration from.
A Photographer
As a photographer, this may come as a shock, but better to get it out of the way upfront: Instagram is about more than pretty pictures. Even the most talented photographers go unnoticed on social media without the right strategy. If you want to use Instagram to grow your photography business, you need a plan for increasing Instagram engagement.
Home Fires, Vol I: The Past  by Bruce Haley
Bruce Haley spent his formative years on a small ranch in the southwestern portion of California's San Joaquin Valley, in an area between Lemoore and Riverdale known as the Island District. Not the sort of young man who was easily contained indoors (setting a pattern that would last a lifetime), he ran the land, rode horses and dirt bikes across the fields, and grew up. Haley is a Robert Capa Gold Medal winner and celebrated internationally for his war and documentary work that took him to Somalia, Afghanistan, Burma, and elsewhere. For this deeply personal project, he turns his camera homeward, to this agriculture-rich San Joaquin Valley. The resulting images, haunting and melancholy, play out against the larger framework of contentious water politics and land use issues.

Best Photo Books of 2020
Here is a selection of photo books that, in my opinion, should be in your library! It is of course a very subjective choice and if I could, I would have chosen at least 50 of them. This collection will help you to draft your 'wish list' or to find the perfect gift for someone who enjoys photography. Happy Holidays!
