Photographer Maggie Taylor‘s retrospective No Ordinary Days, featuring 120 of her images, will be released in January from University Press of Florida. Her husband, photographer Jerry Uelsmann, is currently exhibiting a selection of his work in Faking It: Manipulated Photography Before Photoshop at The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Studio 360, a nationally syndicated program produced at New York radio station WNYC, recently featured Taylor and Uelsmann in a segment called “Faking It: Jerry Uelsmann and Maggie Taylor“. As part of the program, the couple provided ten images that Studio 360 listeners can download and manipulate as part of a photo re-mix contest. Taylor and Uelsmann will judge the entries and announce a contest winner in December.

For a decade Stephen Ferry has documented the armed internal conflict in Colombia, a complex, violent, and frequently misunderstood struggle that receives little press abroad. The widespread murder, disappearances, and displacement– a result of power struggles among paramilitary, guerrilla, and government groups– has terrorized civilians for decades. But Ferry’s focus is on those who, at great personal risk, resist the violence and struggle for peace through nonviolent means. His subjects include trade unionists, human rights defenders, journalists, peasant leaders, and community members showing strength and courage in the face of enormous injustice.
Included below are a several layouts from Ferry’s book, Violentology published by Umbrage. Visit Time’s LightBox for a video tour of the book with a guided narration by Ferry.
Ferry will also be presenting and discussing the work at The Photographers Lecture Series at ICP tonight at 7pm.

The Caño-Limón oil field is shared between the Colombian state oil company Ecopetrol and the Occidental Petroleum Corporation based in the United States. In 2002, the US Congress approved a special package of 98 million dollars in military aid directed to the XVIII Brigade in Arauca to defend the pipeline. Arauquita, Arauca. March 4, 2002.

These photos of Toronto-based electronic/experimental music duo Crystal Castles by Koury Angelo and Chris La Putt capture the pure exaltation and sheer exhaustion of their chaotic live show. Angelo and La Putt were both winners of the 2011 Ultimate Music Moment photo contest. Today is the extended deadline for the 2012 contest.

British photographer Maja Daniels first spotted identical twins Monette and Mady on the streets of Paris. “They have lived their whole life closely together and are, as they say, inseparable,” Daniels says. “Monette and Mady do not just share a close relationship as sisters; as a couple they act, model and dance together and the city of Paris is their main stage.” On the occasions when they dress in different outfits, Daniels says, people stop and ask them if they’ve argued. While twins have provided a rich subject for many photographers, Daniels was interested in visual representations of an older generation, and plans to continue photographing these sisters as they age.
Daniels’ project received special acknowledgment in the 2012 Magenta Flash Forward competition, a juried competition for emerging photographers in the UK, Canada and the US.
The Magenta Foundation is presenting its Flash Forward Festival now in Boston through June 10, with lectures, panel discussions, indoor and outdoor exhibitions and educational and networking opportunities for emerging photographers. Details are available on the web site of the Flash Forward Festival.
