News, that's not really news

I follow Photojojo on twitter, they claim something, I've been suspecting all along, the most commonly used camera on flickr, is no longer a DSLR. No surprises for me, but what strikes me as the most intriguing is,

"Now that many of our phones have cameras that take photos that really are good enough for most situations, and our capacity to take photos (without worry for film cost or memory space) is nearly limitless, expect our usage of photography to continue to shift in this direction — from dedicated cameras to always-present devices. From special occasions, to everyday documentation."

Exhibitions, I'd wish I could have seen

Eastman House is not only re-running the New Topographics: Photographs of a Man-altered Landscape, from 1975; but this exhibition, entitled, Nature as Artifice: New Dutch Landscape in Photography and Video Art

The description “Dutch landscape” may evoke an idyllic vision reminiscent of Dutch landscape paintings, but today the Netherlands is known for its planned, manipulated landscape. In the last two decades a number of Dutch photographers and filmmakers have taken contemporary Dutch landscape and nature as their point of departure. George Eastman House presents a major survey of this new work, titled Nature as Artifice: New Dutch Landscape in Photography and Video Art, on view June 13 through Aug. 16. It is a companion show to the Eastman House summer exhibition New Topographics, originally mounted in 1975, illustrating the profound influence of that exhibition on the generations that have followed.

The tyranny of distance lingers.
