July 16, 1951: The Catcher in the Rye is Published
On this day in 1951, J.D. Salinger’s novel, The Catcher in the Rye, was published. The novel tells the story of 16-year-old Holden Caulfield, a troubled character who challenged 1950s conformity, much like Salinger himself.
Due to its somewhat rebellious tone, Salinger’s work has been linked to issues of controversy and censorship.  Even so, over 60 years later, The Catcher in the Rye has sold over 65 million copies and continues to sell an additional 500,000 each year.
Learn about the novel’s path to publication with American Masters’ J. D. Salinger infographic.

Though most of us in the United States haven’t seen a surveillance drone buzzing overhead, it’s a common sight for some people living abroad. 

Photographer Tomas van Houtryve used a drone with a high definition camera to capture the types of places and gatherings typically photographed by American drones overseas.

When it comes to 20th century photographers, few names have as much clout as Richard Avedon, the famed staff photographer for Harper’s Bazaar from 1946-1965.

The Richard Avedon Foundation recently released a beautifully designed iPad app featuring the entirety of Avedon’s archive. Oh, and did we mention that it’s free?

Photographer Shinichi Maruyama teamed up with choreographer Jessica Lang for a jaw-dropping photo series of nude dancers. 

Though the photos appear to be long exposure shots, Maruyama actually created the effect by combining 10,000 individual images for each composite photograph.

10,000 photos to make each composite image that at first glance look like slow motion captures.

Oh my that was brutal!

I’ve always felt that one of the most difficult tasks a photographer has is to edit her own work.
Not counting breaking news or sports, where you either get the shot or you don’t - I’m talking about the feature and portrait work.
When you sit down in front of the screen after the shoot you must be the photo editor of the work not the photographer.
Park the emotion and the struggles of the shoot and look for the photo that jumps off the screen.
Well…, today I encountered another layer of complexity of the editing task: editing your “selfie”!
My buddy and collaborator, Craig Sillitoe, asked for a self portrait for a project we are working on for his site www.csillitoe.com
I admit I went for the quick painless iPhone route as opposed to the full tripod and timer production, but still I was uncomfortable taking photos of myself.
Why do so many others enjoy the selfie?
Anyway the “shoot” was quick but then I had to choose one - oh my!
I shot about 35 frames (aka an “old school” roll) and it took me about 1hour to choose the shot … actually I couldn’t, so I chose two and sent them off.

I believe a professional masters editing their own work but I don’t know if I could ever master editing self portraits.

Over the past 30 years, Steve McCurry has become a legend in photojournalism, and for good reason!

So far we’ve had Tipsters using mounted film slides or broken cameras but never both at the same time. Well, there’s always a first time for everything and today’s the day! http://ow.ly/qChl5

We’ll never look at dogs quite the same way again.
