Searching for Memory of the Gulags in Putin’s Russia

'Never Remember' is a collaboration of two great storytellers, writer Masha Gessen and photographer Misha Friedman, that explores the absence of historical memory in Russia. a vital project to check out as denial of history is being addressed across continents. the book is out now!

Many Russians, even those formerly dedicated to preserving history, have come to think that tales of the horrors of the Soviet camps were overblown.

Authorship in the Current Media Landscape – Vantage – Medium

In an increasingly competitive media landscape, it is the documentarians and image-makers who adopt a strong and wholly personal voice that are best positioned to succeed. Liza Faktor talked to four photographers — Laia Abril, Rena Effendi, Zackary Canepari and Adam Ferguson — about their daring, personal and self-initiated projects, and how they must not only nurture the story but new audiences too. up on Vantage now

Forensic Architecture: the detail behind the devilry

We are big fans of the groundbreaking work Forensic Architecture & Eyal Weizman are doing to uncover war crimes and human rights abuses. 'Forensic Architecture’s investigations stand up in court, get ministers to recant their previous statements, and change lives and, sometimes, policy'. If you are in London, go see their recent work exhibited ICA March 7th-May 6th

An organisation that uses architectural evidence in cases of war crimes or other human rights abuses is making itself enemies in high places

SCREEN LAB EXPRESS-AUSTRALIA

As producers, editors and curators, we encounter many incredible photographers and visual artists in our daily work. These storytellers often have well-researched and visually stunning narratives, but hit roadblocks during production.

They get stuck, lacking the knowledge that will help move their projects beyond traditional photography and editorial media markets to new platforms and audiences, such as broadcasting, film, art, technology or performance.

We're a small team here at Screen, while we recognize these roadblocks, there are only so many projects we can take on. So, we have channelled things we've learned into a format that we could share with a larger network of storytellers. This is how Screen Lab came about.

We've held Screen LABs in London, New York, and this March we'll travel to Australia to run Screen LAB Express in Melbourne.

Please, help us spread the word and tag a friend from the Asia-Pacific region or share this post so we can meet talented storytellers down under and help them navigate today's complex media landscape.

Produced by Screen in partnership with RMIT University’s School of Media and Communication and School of Art, Melbourne, Australia.

Flint is a place

Happy New Year y'all! here's a treat for you - launched a new episode of Flint is a place celebrating the Flint's youth. check the Prom chapter at www.flintisaplace.com

“It's like Quinceanera, basically. That's what I feel like prom is, it's like an American Quinceanera. I don't know how to put it into words. I don't know how to describe it, but it's like ... You know when you know what you want to say? But it's like scrambled eggs in my brain a little bit. I don't know how to describe it. You can't go to prom looking any type of way, you have to be dressed the best that you can be."

Happy New Year from Flint is a place! 2018 is finally here and Chapter 3 or our project is fully live. Introducing PROM. Prom in Flint is no average high school dance. Landon Nordeman, Jessica Dimmock and Zackary Canepari wanted to celebrate the young people of Flint Northwestern High School. Our approach is meant to highlight the simultaneous issues at play - the project is both a celebration of the student body's sense of swagger and style but also looks at the very serious problems affecting these high school students. At it’s core, we approached this as a story that celebrated fashion and spirit, with an undercurrent of struggle, and not the other way around. Because that's how the students themselves see it...

Enjoy!

the amazing Laia Abril interviewed by The British Journal of Photography about her 'On Abortion' project

“I’m not an activist,” she says. “I’m not trying to change anyone’s mind or fix the situation because I don’t have the power to do that. But maybe I do have the power to shed some light on the stories that we don’t think about or that don’t get the same audience that I’m reaching.” Laia Abril Dewi Lewis
