Links from March 5th Meeting

In Manfred’s presentation he mentioned this paper on Evaluating the Rule of Thirds in Photographs and Paintings.

Sue Carey sent along this excerpt from Freeman Patterson’s newsletter:

I’d also like to draw your attention to www.earthisourwitness.com, produced by Parimal Deshpande and hosted by him and the internationally-renowned photographer, Art Wolfe, both from Seattle. This is a series of stimulating conversations with photographers from around the world, selected by Art and centred on some of their images. The series is a work-in-progress; you can view those already filmed and there are more to come. Don’t miss the compelling conversation with Wade Davis, the Canadian anthropologist and photographer, who was explorer-in-residence at National Geographic for several years. (My conversation on SYMBOLS and MEANING will be recorded March 2. View live on http://www.facebook.com/earthisourwitness, on http://www.instagram.com/earthisourwitness, and live or for up to a year on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/c/EARTHISOURWITNESS.)
