Henri Cartier-Bresson (1908 – 2004), fotograf - OMAGIU - de ovidiusimina la: 11/08/2004 10:54:33

fraction de seconde du réel »

Henri Cartier-Bresson (1908 – 2004)
===================================================

Kingdoms of the world in a moment

Aug 5th 2004, From The Economist print edition
http://www.economist.com/cities/displaystory.cfm?story_id=3071607

Henri Cartier-Bresson, whose photographs defined the
20th century, died on August 3rd at the age of 95

ALTHOUGH his name was familiar almost everywhere, far
more so indeed than his work, Henri Cartier-Bresson
himself was not a familiar sight. With his alert blue
eyes and a coloured handkerchief knotted round his
neck, he would wander the streets near his home on
Paris's rue de Rivoli and seldom be recognised. One of
the greatest photographers of the 20th century was
himself rarely photographed.

In his lifetime, he travelled to all corners of the
earth, capturing images of some of the most
extraordinary moments of 20th-century history—the
Spanish civil war, the liberation of Paris after the
second world war and the funeral of Mahatma Gandhi. At
the same time he framed and preserved less famous
moments, elevating them with his genius so that they
somehow seemed to capture the essence of life itself.

His unequalled ability to seize a millisecond in time
was uncanny. In his book “The Decisive Moment”,
published in 1952, he wrote: “It is the simultaneous
recognition, in a fraction of a second, of the
significance of an event as well as a precise
organisation of forms, which give that event its
proper expression.” He was never very interested in
the technology of photography, in the effects that
could be obtained during developing and editing in a
dark room. It was all about the thrill of the chase,
the chance to seize a moment.

The man who first inspired Mr Cartier-Bresson was a
photographer called Martin Munkacsi, whose picture of
naked African boys running into Lake Tanganyika in
1931 persuaded him to take photography seriously. “I
couldn't believe that such a thing could be caught on
camera,” he said, “so I grabbed my Leica and went out
into the street.”

Between 1932 and 1935, he lived rough in Italy, Mexico
and Spain where he took some of his most memorable
images. Back in Paris he worked with Jean Renoir, a
film director, and ended up playing the unlikely role
of an English servant in the director's masterpiece,
“La Règle du Jeu”. He was a prisoner-of-war for three
years, and after the war was one of the founders of
the Magnum agency, a trail-blazing photographers'
co-operative. In 1948 he went on the road again,
mostly to India and China (in time for the fall of
Chiang Kai-shek), in an age when the images of
photojournalists like him filled the pages of picture
magazines that were, in the pre-television era,
hungrily viewed by millions.

Unassuming genius
For the last quarter of a century, Mr Cartier-Bresson
eschewed photography, taking only the occasional
snapshot of friends and family, and turning his
attention to drawing. (He trained originally as a
painter, his early work influenced by his friend, the
surrealist artist Max Ernst.) He maintained that he
scarcely wanted to discuss photography any more. “It's
like when you're divorced”, he said, “and people keep
asking about your former wife. There's something
indecent about it.”

He settled into a quiet life in France—in Paris and in
the small house that he owned for some 30 years in the
Lubéron, a region in the south of the country, to the
east of Avignon. And there he died on Tuesday August
3rd, just less than three weeks away from his 96th
birthday.

Mr Cartier-Bresson always said that to be a great
photographer you had to be unintrusive. “For me,
photography is very much a physical pleasure—it's like
hunting, except that we don't kill.” At the height of
his career he would stalk his subjects, and his quarry
would often be unaware that it had been captured on
film. His desire to remain out of the limelight stayed
with him to the end, including his wish to hold back
the world's photographers from the funeral of one of
the greatest of them.

His funeral was a private affair attended by some 50
family and close friends. Only after it had ended did
the French Ministry of Culture make an official
announcement of his death. And the next day, August
5th, many of his most famous images were splashed
across the front pages of newspapers the world over: a
woman slapping an informer she recognises at a
deportation camp in Dessau in 1945; Muslim women in
Srinagar, Kashmir, praying to the sun as it rises over
the distant Himalayas; and a French family picnicking
by the River Marne in 1938, almost a last pre-war
moment of stillness.

Of Mr Cartier-Bresson's death, President Jacques
Chirac said: “With him, France loses a genius
photographer, a true master, and one of the most
gifted artists of his generation.” But it is not only
France's loss. Mr Cartier-Bresson's fame, which grew
despite his efforts to avoid it, reminds a much wider
world of its persistent admiration for unassuming
genius, and of the dwindling stock of targets for that
admiration.

Cartier-Bresson, les photographes et l'équipe de

décès d'Henri Cartier-Bresson le 3 Août à 9h30 dans sa

The New York Times si rascoala fotografilor - de Dinu Lazar la: 18/05/2004 02:20:32
(la: O conversatie cu DINU LAZAR, fotograf)
Dear fellow editorial photographers and colleagues:

It was with significant dismay that we read The New York Times' recent contract offer to its contributing freelance photographers. It marks a new low point in our industry's downward spiral in the terms under which freelancers are asked to work for publications.

Over the years the Times has been continually diminishing the compensation it pays to freelancers. It has not raised its assignment fees for so many years that inflation has greatly eaten away the value of the payment. By comparison, standard photo assistant day rates in most metro areas of the US now outstrip what The New York Times sees fit to pay its freelance photographers for creating the visual content of its pages. To add insult to injury, in 1998 the Times began demanding web use without additional payment, then a few years later unilaterally eliminated transmission fees, and now is asking for copyright with no additional increase in compensation. The Times is in essence seeking to gain virtually all the benefits of having employees without bearing any of the real costs. Why should freelancers subsidize The New York Times in this manner?

In its defense, the Times has argued that this contract is not much different from many contracts currently employed by newspapers. We feel that joining the ranks of other publishers that attempt to bully their freelancers with bad terms and bad contracts only makes the Times one more bully on the block. Given that the Times takes pride in presenting itself as an organization devoted to integrity and excellence, its treatment of freelancers clearly violates its own cherished principles. We would think that a publication as esteemed and prestigious as The New York Times would find this situation most embarrassing, not to mention demoralizing to those who are asked to distribute this contract.

From a photographer's perspective the Times contract is an abysmally bad deal (for a thorough analysis, please go to:

...viata bate filmul. Si digitalul, desigur. - de Dinu Lazar la: 26/03/2005 17:47:51
(la: O conversatie cu DINU LAZAR, fotograf)
Pentru cine mai are indoieli, un citat si un link:

As a professional photographer with over 30 years experience and exhibited at many venues, I can say that the print I produced this afternoon is better than anything I have ever done in the darkroom. The print has sharpness, great colour saturation and all the qualities that I would expect from a wet chemistry photograph, let alone a digital print. It is stunning. Any photographer who questions the quality or merit of a digital print compared to a wet chemistry print need only look at the output from the R1800.

O oportunitate pentru cafegii care vor niste maruntis - de Dinu Lazar la: 01/12/2005 08:06:59
(la: O conversatie cu DINU LAZAR, fotograf)
The doors are open today to our new feature at
Photosource International: PhotoSourceGROUP
You’ll find us at www.photosource.group.com


Welcome!

PhotoSourceGROUP is a unique image-display site that locates hard-to-find photos in seconds for the buying public- commercial clients, photobuyers at magazine and book publishers, and private parties.
Photobuyers worldwide come to PhotoSourceGROUP to view your images by a targeted search method established and proved successful for 6 years by PhotoSource International, and adapted now to partner with PhotoSourceGroup for the benefit of photographers and photobuyers.

How does it work? We own a unique keyword-finding system that saves the buyer time (and money) the “just right” image for their publishing project. By using our PhotoSourceBANK (where photographers list up to 3,000 words describing their photo collection) photobuyers find the SOURCE (the photographer) of a photo or photos in the subject area they are seeking.

Stage two, the photobuyer is automatically connected to your pages on the PhotoSourceGROUP site where they can see the actual image. If the photo is not immediately available among the group of images you have posted on PhotoSourceGROUP, the buyer will immediately e-mail you requesting a LightBOX version of the picture through our QuikAlert system.

In addition to using the PhotoSourceBANK search system, our promotional materials encourage photobuyers to use a search engine such as Google.

In the search bar, the photobuyer simply types in a word or phrase describing their picture need, a space, and then the word photosource. This re-directs the buyer immediately to the PhotoSourceBANK / PhotoSourceGROUP site. We have had the text search partners, PhotoSourceBANK, up and running successfully for photographers since 1999.



PhotoSourceGROUP handles all transactions, billing
and delivery. Photographers receive 75% of sales.

Another advantage you have with PhotoSourceGROUP is name recognition. Our business has been dealing with photobuyers at magazine and book publishers for 30 years, long before the days of the Internet, and has been one step ahead of the digital revolution ever since. Our new PhotoSourceGROUP advanced website is an example of this.

Photobuyers prefer to spend their valuable time with a business that has a proven track record and where they know they can get results.

Biblia data pe Muntele Sinai? - de Muresh la: 29/03/2006 10:34:44
(la: de ce credeti in dumnezeu?)
We all know that the Septuagint is a translation from the Bible in Hebrew. Today, there are people saying that the Bible Hebrew of nowadays, is the Masoretic Bible, wich was written 1000 years ago, using the Septuagint as a source.
1. How do you explain this invers process. First, the 72 jews who write the Septuagint used the Hebrew Bible and, afterwards, 1300 years later, the hebrews were in need to use the Septuagint in order to rescue their oun Bible. What happened with their original Bible?
2. But maybe the Masoretic Bible was not in need for the Septuabint to be written. Maybe the Masoretic Bible is the old Hebrew Bible with some additional signs and letters in order to make it more readable. If that is the case, it is possible that the Mount Sinai Bible was preserved until today without important changes?
Thanks,

Four Jewish brothers left home for college and became successful doctors and lawyers, and prospered.
Some years later, they chatted after having dinner together.
They discussed the gifts that they were going to give to their elderly mother, who lived in another city.
The first said, "I'm having a big house built for Mama."
The second said, "I'm having a hundred thousand dollar theater built in the house."
The third said, "I'm having my Mercedes dealer deliver her an SL600 with a chauffeur.
The fourth said, "Listen to this. You know how Mama loves the Torah and you know how she can't read anymore because she can't see very well. Well, I met this Rabbi who told me about a parrot that can recite the entire Torah.
It took ten rabbis 12 years to teach him. I had to pledge to contribute 100,000 a year for ten years to the temple, but it was worth it.
Mama just has to name the chapter and verse and the parrot will recite it."
The other brothers were impressed.

Later, Mama sent out her thank you notes. She wrote:
Dear Milton, the house you built is so huge. I live in only one room, but have to clean the whole house. Thanks anyway.
Dear Menachem, you gave me an expensive theater with Dolby sound that can hold 50 people, but all my friends are dead, I've lost my hearing and I'm nearly blind. I'll never use it. But thank you for the gesture just the same.
Dear Marvin, I am too old to travel. I stay home, I have my groceries delivered, so I never use the Mercedes... and the driver you hired is a Nazi. But the thought was good. Thanks.
Dearest Melvin, You were the only son to have the good sense to give a little thought to your gift. The chicken was delicious. Thank you.

CONSTANTA COUNTY, Romania -- A Romanian man is demanding a divorce after finding out he married the twin sister of the woman he fell in love with.

The man, known only as Vladut R., from Constanta, lived for three years with his wife Monica but says he couldn't go on with the "ordeal" because he loved her sister.

The man met the "love of his life" - Elena - a few years ago during a trip to France, reports the Cuget Liber newspaper. They were to meet up again back in Romania but the woman decided not to stay in touch after she suffered an accident and needed time to recover.

Meanwhile, Vladut met his lover's twin sister, Monica, at the seaside and thought it was the girl of his dreams. She accepted his marriage proposal, not telling him the truth about her sister.

Now the couple, who are both dentists, have agreed to divorce so the man can be back together with the right sister.

Dear Cecil:

This question seems like such an obvious candidate for your column that someone must have asked it before. But on the chance no one has, here goes: what does "OK" stand for, and where does the expression come from? I've heard a lot of different explanations over the years.

— Norm, Chicago

Dear Norm:

Yeah, and it's about time I got things cleared up. Despite the fact that the origin of OK was conclusively established 30 years ago, few etymological dictionaries, even recent ones, give it accurately. On the contrary, some persist in giving equal time to explanations that have been discredited for decades.

Eric Partridge, in Origins (1983), says OK derives from the OK Club, which supported Martin "Old Kinderhook" Van Buren in 1840. That isn't wrong, but it's only half the story.

William and Mary Morris, in the Morris Dictionary of Word and Phrase Origins (1977), mention the OK Club and give several other theories as well, including the off-the-wall idea that OK comes from "Aux Cayes," a port in Haiti noted for its rum. They imply the matter is still shrouded in mystery.

Baloney. The etymology of OK was masterfully explained by the distinguished Columbia University professor Allen Walker Read in a series of articles in the journal American Speech in 1963 and 1964.

The letters, not to keep you guessing, stand for "oll korrect." They're the result of a fad for comical abbreviations that flourished in the late 1830s and 1840s.

Read buttressed his arguments with hundreds of citations from newspapers and other documents of the period. As far as I know his work has never been successfully challenged.

The abbreviation fad began in Boston in the summer of 1838 and spread to New York and New Orleans in 1839. The Boston newspapers began referring satirically to the local swells as OFM, "our first men," and used expressions like NG, "no go," GT, "gone to Texas," and SP, "small potatoes."

Many of the abbreviated expressions were exaggerated misspellings, a stock in trade of the humorists of the day. One predecessor of OK was OW, "oll wright," and there was also KY, "know yuse," KG, "know go," and NS, "nuff said."

Most of these acronyms enjoyed only a brief popularity. But OK was an exception, no doubt because it came in so handy. It first found its way into print in Boston in March of 1839 and soon became widespread among the hipper element.

(la: Bye, bye, mr. Einstein...? )
Adaug un citat din publicatiile acelui fizician.
"Einstein was the only physicist fairly close to deducing the LT as a CT [2]. However, he emitted the signal at a time when the two inertial CS’s did not coincide, and a priori ignored any CSAR. Consequently, he couldnot realize that, by that signal, he actually traced a radius vector. So, he failed in concluding that the tracing of radius vectors by physical signals was the objective reality underlying his decisions (pointed out in Sect. 5) to manipulate several equations in order to obtain the LT in [2]. So much the more, he couldnot conclude that this objective reality validated the principle of the physical determination of equations in SRT1, so providing the physical grounds of SRT. Two years later [3], and then ever after,Einstein and his followers opted for using purely mathematical derivations of the LT. SRT was developed without the derivation of the LT in [2]. Relativity handbooks and papers based on them, as well as sciencefiction productions exploiting their misleading physical predictions, have flourished ever since.
Neither Einstein nor his followers worried about the disastrous impact the chosen dogmatic formulation of SRT would have upon human knowledge and progress in physics and technology: His a fortiori formulation of the light-speed principle and the concepts of spacetime and time dilation, have broken the logical relation between the typical concepts of space and time, motion and rest, and absolute and relative. The need to abolish the original significance of those concepts could never be proved. Nevertheless, the breaking has violently penetrated the human consciousness for a century now."

New York, April 30, 2004-The Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) is marking World Press Freedom Day, Monday, May 3, by naming the World's Worst Places to Be a Journalist.
The list of 10 places represents the full range of current threats to press freedom.

At the top of the list is Iraq, where 25 journalists have died since the U.S.-led war began in March 2003. A brutal crackdown launched last year in Cuba by Fidel Castro's government has left an unprecedented 29 journalists behind bars, serving lengthy prison terms of up to 27 years. Last year saw the biggest blow to Zimbabwe's beleaguered press when authorities closed the country's only remaining independent daily. CPJ also placed Turkmenistan, Bangladesh, China, Eritrea, Haiti, the West Bank and Gaza, and Russia on the list of Worst Places to Be a Journalist.


"In all of these places, reporting the news is an act of courage and conviction," said CPJ Executive Director Ann Cooper. "Journalism is essential in helping all of us understand the events that shape our lives, and our need and desire for information cannot be eliminated by violence and repression."


WORLD'S WORST PLACES TO BE A JOURNALIST:

IRAQ

More than a year after the war in Iraq began, the country remains the most dangerous place in the world to work as a journalist. Twenty-five journalists have been killed in action in Iraq since March 2003. Twelve have been killed in 2004 alone-all of them Iraqis.

Postwar Iraq is fraught with risks for reporters: Banditry, gunfire, and bombings are common. Insurgents have added a new threat by systematically targeting foreigners, including journalists, and Iraqis who work for them.
At least six Iraqi media workers have been murdered, and several more have received threats. Armed groups have abducted some eight journalists in 2004, though all have been released.

U.S. forces pose an additional threat to working journalists: at least seven-and possibly as many as nine-journalists have been killed by gunfire from U.S. forces. Other journalists-mostly Arab or Iraqi-have been detained and suffered mistreatment at the hands of U.S. forces.

CUBA

The arrest and long-term imprisonment of 29 journalists in 2003 has decimated Cuba's fledgling independent press. A year after the government of President Fidel Castro Ruz launched a massive crackdown against the press and the political opposition, the imprisoned journalists and their families are harassed and exposed to humiliating prison conditions and psychological torture. They have denounced inadequate medical attention, have been placed in solitary confinement, and have complained about receiving foul-smelling and rotten food. The journalists, who are held in maximum-security facilities, went on hunger strikes several times to demand better conditions. Those journalists who were not imprisoned continue to face routine police intimidation and harassment and are careful about what they write. They say they have been visited by state security officials and issued warnings to stop writing or face the consequences.

ZIMBABWE

For the last four years, Zimbabwe's government has pursued a relentless crackdown on the private press through harassment, censorship, and restrictive legislation. Last year saw the biggest blow to press freedom yet, with authorities closing the Daily News, Zimbabwe's only independent daily and the country's most popular paper. The country's Media and Information Commission (MIC), whose board is government-appointed, refused to register the newspaper despite two court orders to do so. And in February 2004, the Zimbabwean Supreme Court upheld legislation requiring journalists and media outlets to be licensed by the MIC, making it a criminal act to practice journalism without government approval. Those who fail to register face fines and up to two years' imprisonment.

Zimbabwean officials have proven particularly sensitive to coverage of political unrest and the country's severe economic problems. Journalists who reported on pro-democracy rallies were arrested by police and attacked by ruling party supporters. Last year, authorities deported the last foreign reporter based in Zimbabwe, the U.K. Guardian's Andrew Meldrum, whom officials called an "undesirable inhabitant."

TURKMENISTAN

Because political dissent is not tolerated by Turkmenistan's totalitarian regime, independent journalism is practically non-existent.
President-for-life and self-proclaimed "father of all Turkmen,"
Saparmurat
Niyazov, maintains strict control over all newspapers, radio, and television stations by personally appointing editors, and his office approves news reports before they are published or broadcast.

One of the only independent media outlets that penetrates this system of control is the reporting broadcast from abroad by the Turkmen service of the U.S. government-funded Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty (RFE/RL). And again this year, RFE/RL was subjected to intense official harassment. In September 2003, National Security Service (MNB) agents detained an RFE/RL stringer based in the capital, Ashgabat, for two days, threatened him with 20 years in prison for betraying his country, and injected him multiple times with an unknown substance. More recently, in February 2004, MNB agents arrested two RFE/RL freelancers after one smuggled 800 copies of his banned novel into Turkmenistan. Both were released from prison in March after CPJ and other press freedom groups protested. However, the journalists still face charges of slander and instigating social, ethnic, and religious hatred and have been pressured to sever all ties with RFE/RL.


BANGLADESH

Crime, corruption, and lawlessness make Bangladesh the most violent country for journalists in Asia. Reporters routinely face threats, harassment, and often brutally violent physical attacks in retaliation for their reporting.
Despite promises from government officials to apprehend those responsible for assaults, the majority of attacks on journalists go unpunished. Deep political divisions in the country and within the journalism community also contribute to the climate of fear.

CPJ has documented dozens of violent attacks against Bangladeshi journalists during the last decade, including the murders of seven journalists in the last eight years. Journalists working outside the capital, Dhaka, are particularly vulnerable. Veteran journalist Manik Saha was killed in January
2004 in the southwestern city of Khulna when unidentified assailants threw a homemade bomb at him. In December 2003, a group of thugs affiliated with the ruling Bangladesh Nationalist Party tried to kill Shafiul Haque Mithu in the southwestern town of Pirojpur after he wrote a series of articles exposing local officials' abuse of power.

CHINA

During the last year, the newly installed government of President Hu Jintao and Premier Wen Jiabao has escalated an assault on the burgeoning independent-minded media in China. Authorities have arrested high-profile editors, closed publications, and imposed news blackouts on politically sensitive events.

The crackdown reached an apex in early 2004, when officials arrested three popular and respected editors from the pioneering Southern Metropolis News for alleged corruption. The charges came after the paper published a series of reports on the resurgence of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome, local police violence, and other sensitive topics. Chinese journalists have called the arrests the "darkest moment" in 20 years of media reform in China.

Forty-one journalists are now imprisoned in China, making it the world's leading jailer of journalists for the fifth year in a row. Independent writers and commentators on the Internet are particularly targeted for prosecution. The arrest of prominent and outspoken commentator Du Daobin in late 2003 sent a clear message to all Internet writers that free expression online will not be tolerated.

ERITREA

Eritrea has been Africa's foremost jailer of journalists since September 2001, when the government banned the entire private press and detained independent reporters. Seventeen journalists are now in secret jails across the tiny Red Sea nation, almost all of them held incommunicado. President Isaias Afewerki and top government officials have accused independent journalists of espionage, spreading disinformation, and "endangering national unity." Authorities continue to insist that the private press also operated without proper licenses, and that independent journalists routinely evaded the compulsory National Service Program. Despite these allegations, no formal charges have been brought against any of the journalists, and the government has given no indication that it intends to prosecute them.

The ruling party has a firm grip on the state media, whose employees are censored and also practice self-censorship. Afewerki has been unfazed by persistent international denunciation of his human rights record and continues to dismiss foreign critics as enemies of Eritrea.


HAITI

Press freedom conditions have seriously deteriorated in Haiti since September 2003, when the murder of a notorious gang leader sparked nationwide violence. From January to March 2004, journalists became targets during the uprising that led to the ouster of President Jean-Bertrand Aristide on February 29. While hostility against Haitian journalists is common, foreign correspondents were also attacked while covering the two-month rebellion. In March, a Spanish television correspondent was killed and a U.S. photographer was wounded by gunfire. Several radio stations were torched around the country. Investigations into the 2000 and 2001 murders of two prominent Haitian journalists have shown no progress. The Haitian judicial system's failure to prosecute these crimes has perpetuated a climate of impunity, forcing dozens of journalists to go into exile or seek political asylum.

THE WEST BANK AND GAZA

The West Bank and Gaza Strip remains one of the most unpredictable and potentially dangerous assignments for journalists. At least three journalists have been killed there since April 2003-each by Israeli army gunfire. Israeli troops often harass or attack Palestinian journalists, and Israeli authorities enforce tough restrictions on their freedom of movement.
Palestinian journalists are vulnerable to the increasing lawlessness in the Occupied Territories.

Palestinian militias and armed groups have frequently threatened and assaulted reporters and in some cases have ransacked news offices. In 2003 and 2004, Palestinian gunmen raided two television news offices and a newspaper in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, attacked a correspondent on the street in Gaza, and assaulted a reporter in Ramallah.

RUSSIA

President Vladimir Putin's "managed democracy," which includes using various branches of the state bureaucracy to rein in the independent media, is making the practice of independent journalism in Russia more and more tenuous. A shift from blatant pressures to more subtle and covert tactics, such as politicized lawsuits and hostile corporate takeovers by businessmen with close ties to Putin, has allowed the Kremlin to stifle criticism of the president and reports on government corruption and human rights abuses committed by Russian forces in Chechnya.

In advance of the December 2003 parliamentary elections and March 2004 presidential elections, the Kremlin tightened its legal and bureaucratic controls over the domestic press. Russian press groups criticized the Central Election Commission for failing to sanction the state-run national television channels for improperly promoting Putin and pro-Kremlin parties during the campaigns.

Journalists in Russia's provinces continue to be murdered with impunity.
In
October 2003, the editor-in-chief of an independent newspaper in the Volga River city of Togliatti was stabbed to death because of his paper's coverage of organized crime and government corruption. He was the paper's second editor-in-chief to be murdered in 18 months.

The Committee to Protect Journalists is a non-partisan, nonprofit organization dedicated to defending press freedom worldwide.

de cand se traduce "jew" prin "jidan"(termen insultator)?

N-am intentionat sa jignesc pe nimeni si nu stiam ca "jidan" e un termen insultator; daca e imi cer scuze. Cum s-ar traduce atunci? --- ca n-am un dictionar englez-roman la indemina.

Dupa cite stiu eu: hebrew = evreu
israeli = israelian
jew = ? (eu credeam jidan---corectati-ma)
jewish = de religie ?

In medieval England, Jews, though engaged in many pursuits, were particularly
familiar as money-lenders, their activities being publicly regulated for them
by the Crown, whose proteges they were. In private, Christians also practised
money-lending, though forbidden to do so by Canon Law. Thus the name of Jew
came to be associated in the popular mind with usury and any extortionate
practices that might be supposed to accompany it, and gained an opprobrious
sense.

Dear reader,

Today's update to PDNOnline offers you more
illuminating-- and possibly controversial-- feature stories you won't find in the print edition. Plus we have brand new Newswire stories.

3 Photojournalists, 3 Stories, Much Dedication

Our September story "Still There" profiles three photojournalists who have devoted years to covering one subject or issue that's become close to their hearts and their consciences. Here at PDNonline we present more work by these dedicated photographers, spanning more than a decade.

Surveying Working Conditions

We find out: What are typical day rates? Do most magazines pay within 30 days, or longer? Do most photographers care more about fees, creative freedom or seeing their photos look nice? Will you earn higher fees as you get older? ($ premium for subscribers

FAIRFAX, VA
SEPTEMBER 28TH, 2004 - 6:30P

The Estimate: The Final Hurdle…
Or why the lowest bid doesn't always win.
Tuesday, September 28th, 2004
7:30pm - Doors open at 6:30
at the studios of Tina Williams
2807 East Merrilee Drive, Fairfax, VA
$5 for APA Members
$15 for Non-Members

One-on-One Portfolio Consultations
with Suzanne Sease and Carolyn Potts
September 28th and 29th, 2004

You've spent big bucks on a killer book and at long last you're getting calls for estimates but you're not getting jobs. The reason may be as simple as how you put together your estimate. Join Suzanne Sease and Carolyn Potts and the new APA/DC associate chapter and learn how badly prepared estimates, and not the bottom line, can be the deciding factor in who gets the job.

This first program for APA/DC, which is affiliated with the New York chapter, is scheduled for September 28th at 7:30pm at the studios of Tina Williams, 2807 E Merrilee Drive, Fairfax, VA. Doors open at 6:30 so come early to help create the newest APA community, meet the New York APA leaders and untangle the mystery behind winning estimates.

Potts, a photographer's rep with 20 years experience, and Sease, former senior art buyer for the Martin Agency, will draw from real life examples as they explain the process that creates a winning estimate.
Listen as they approach estimating from both sides of the coin and learn why the lowest bid won't always win even when photographers are of equal ability.

And if you're not getting the calls for estimates, and think your book may be why, Sease and Potts will be available September 28 and 29th for one-on-one portfolio consultations.
