When the Day: Nameless - Still and Continuous B/W series #1

The sun still rises in surrounding same direction and time, day after day, and never cease to shining, although overcast covered the earth. The wind and rain came and went braved the trees in the yard, and they grew as naturally and as strong as they held on for flowering or fruiting. The time scrolling and spinning slowly but surely, no longer feel existing differences with the time previous. The leaves are still growing or falling on the ground, a sign of a change process of ongoing life unstoppably. When my feet glued and severed, by the problems of life happens so colossal and insistently, without can I prevent or avoid it, and must be brave to face it all, one by one. And the full moon, still visible, revealing light her face like last month, and month after month, previously.

Row between collectors over discovery of works by American photographer Vivian Maier

mage http://www.vivianmaier.com/

“Why does Maloof present himself as the sole discoverer of Maier’s work?” 

She was known as “Mary Poppins with a camera”, an American nanny who never saw the 150,000 extraordinary photographs she took during her very private lifetime in their full glory as prints.

Vivian Maier led a secretive double life as a street photographer, remaining unknown in her lifetime while chronicling the lives of those around her for four decades from the 1950s - mainly in Chicago, but also in New York, Los Angeles and France, where she spent much of her childhood.

Yet just as a documentary released this weekend brings new audiences to her pictures, it has also fuelled a row between the men whose accidental discovery of her work – one of the greatest photographic collections of the 20th century – led to Maier belatedly coming to the world’s attention and garnering a posthumous reputation on a par with Henri Cartier-Bresson.

The Swedish company goes 'back to the future' by releasing the CFV-50c CMOS digital back for its V System cameras

Gemma Padley

The new CMOS sensor-based digital back – the CFV-50c – is engineered to work on almost every V camera made by Hasselblad since 1957.

Its release sees the Swedish company align old and new technology, directly targeting users of its discontinued V System cameras.

“We have experienced a substantial resurgence of interest in our iconic V cameras – users love the traditional ergonomics and the unique appearance,” says Hasselblad CEO Ian Rawcliffe, in a press statement. “Our research has shown that although we no longer manufacture V models, there is a big demand from our dedicated V System users who want to be able to continue to use their classic cameras but also desire access to our latest technology.
