Brett Amory.

Brett Amory’s solo show “Twenty-four in New York" opens this Saturday, June 29th at Jonathan LeVine Gallery in New York City.  Along with brand new paintings based on New York City, Amory filmed 40 different locations around New York City at every hour of the day.  These locations will be projected on a 24 square grid corresponding to the hour of the day in which they were shot - representing a day in the life of New York City.  Brett Amory, as far as I’m concerned, is absolutely one of the top artists making work in the world right now.  He encompasses so much and so well, yet simplifies it to it’s basic elements - which shows Amory’s mastery of complexity.  See more from the show below:

The Chicago Sun-Times made a shocking announcement last week when it fired its entire photo staff. The paper says it will now rely on freelancers and reporters to shoot with cellphone cameras or whatever equipment they have.

Pulitzer Prize-winning photojournalist John H. White was among the nearly 30 full-time photographers let go. White spent decades at the Sun-Times. He told Tell Me More that the firings have hurt the Sun-Times, but the future of photojournalism remains bright.

On what the loss of the Sun-Times photography department means to the paper

“It’s like taking the eyes from the body. My former students, there’s a team, there’s a family. You know, for the Sun-Times, that’s lost.

“We were there because it was a great paper. And Sun-Times won a Pulitzer Prize — the news — just two years ago in 2011. That was before this management purchased the Sun-Times. So the Sun-Times has always been that light, that beacon, that symbol of journalism — and the best of journalism. The consistent pursuit of excellence. Everything I photograph, as far as I’m concerned, is for Page 1. And that’s the idea.

Photo Staff Firings Won’t Shake Pulitzer Winner’s Focus
