Why you should check out the blog La Lettre de la Photographie

.

Have you seen the photo blog La Lettre de la Photographie? It presents photo news, interviews, and reviews and has a worldwide focus. You can watch a video portrait of Olga Sviblova, “the mother, the godmother of Russian photography,” who has just opened a photography museum; read a review of Karine Laval‘s exhibition of swimming-pool photos, “Mise en abyme”; view a portfolio of Frank Rothe‘s German gun photos; and learn that Elisabeth Biondi, the venerable New Yorker photo director, is leaving the magazine (!).

Today, there’s an interview by journalist and curator Thomas Erber with Nadav Kander. “Right from the start my photography had a sense of unease but also simplicity. Even my first pictures, which I made at 13, had the 48 year old in them,” Nadav tells Erber.

Recently, former American Photo editor David Schonauer, who writes the blog I Like to Watch, became a regular contributor to Le Lettre de la Photographie. Schonauer’s column, “USA Press Review,” will look at photographic stories in American newspapers and magazines. His first dispatch comments on the tumult in Tunisia and Egypt, as well as entertainment features, including ones shot by Annie Leibovitz, Terry Richardson, and Art Streiber:
