A Couple of Weekend Links

As I sit in beautiful Seattle awaiting the final CPOY results I thought I’d pass along a couple of interesting things I just came across.

First, via Sportshooter, an NPPA story of the US Army handing out a manipulated photo to the AP.

And two, Alec Soth just posted on the Magnum Blog a handy PDF of ‘Advice to Young Photographers’ which he compiled from his Magnum colleagues. Personally, I think I’ll take Dworzak’s advice today, “… forget about photography”

PS – look out for our next interview on Monday with the amazing Djordje Jovanovic, a friend of mine from Belgrade, Serbia doing cool things. Here is one of his pictures.
