Photographing Presidents & Revolutions
Here’s a great interview by Civilnet with my friend and Polaris Images colleague, photojournalist Scout Tufankjian on her experiences covering the Obama Presidential campaign, the Egyptian revolution and her project on the Armenian diaspora (Scout is an Armenian American from new York).
Power Through Portrait
An absolutely fascinating presentation by Platon about his portraits of the planet’s leaders; those in power. Naturally this covers the politicians but goes much further, covering the tech leaders and finishes with the leaders of the Egyptian revolution. Very inspiring work and interesting stories about the portraits.
