03.27.13 digest – waiting for the temperature to rise a tiny bit

Good morning,

I prepared a green & brown digest today with the hope of reminding you that it actually is Spring outside… However, if you feel like you did not have enough of the black and white colors this winter and feeling empathic with our British neighbours currently being buried under a wall of snow… Then jump directly to the last item about Anders Petersen’s SOHO

While the British Journal of Photography announces a new start with a new owner and new strategies, but also comments on this meaningful entry at the World Press Photo contest:
World Press Photo judges discuss emotion and content in winning images

Adam Neese, The Place We Would Meet at Midnight at FLAK PHOTO:
Adam Neese (b. 1985, Longmont, Colorado) was raised in Grapevine, Texas, halfway between Dallas and Fort Worth. His most recent photographic project A Known World investigates his memories and personal history in the landscape of North Texas.

And a small insight on SOHO available as a book (buzzing pretty loud on the photography blogs last year) and worth having a closer look.
