Wired’s “Favorite Photobloggers”

The editors of Wired‘s blog Raw File are inviting readers to “Get to Know Our Favorite Photobloggers” in a post that includes brief interviews with the bloggers in question. Sadly, we were not included on the list… (sniffle, sniffle) One of the people who did make the cut is Blake Andrews, whom Raw File dubs “The Prankster” because he is irreverent. Blake, whose blog is B: Rumblings form the photographic hinterlands, has no background in photography—or writing, for that matter—but he does have something interesting to say. Asked what he thinks is missing from the photoblogosphere, he replied:

“I’d like to see more day-to-day journaling from prominent photographers. Not the usual show or book announcements you see on all blogs, but thoughts by photogs as they work through ideas. Mark Tucker‘s or Richard Renaldi‘s blogs are good examples. But it would be great to see this sort of thing from top-shelf stars. Can you imagine a Friedlander blog? Or a Martin Parr blog or a Sally Mann blog? I think the only thing comparable so far was Alec Soth’s blog which was great. Alec Soth’s blog was really the landmark photoblog. It was the Lexington and Concord of photoblogs.”
