We are Santa by Ron Cooper

My most recent project, We Are Santa, was produced a bit closer to home, specifically in photo shoots in eight cities across the United States.
Winners of Narratives Announced
The photograph's power as a narrative tool is derived from the impression that what is captured within the frame is an accurate representation of what actually occurred at a specific moment in time. As complete or comprehensive as any narrative may appear to be, it will always be subject to a process of including some elements and excluding others. These inclusions and exclusion are a crucial part of what photographic storytelling is all about - What is being presented within the frame to the viewer - and what is being left out or left to the viewer's imagination.

Phil Bergerson Retrospective in Search of Meaning
Phil Bergerson "In Search of Meaning" marks the Stephen Bulger Gallery's sixth solo exhibition of work by Canadian photographer Phil Bergerson (b. 1947, Toronto, Canada) and coincides with the release of his third monograph, A Retrospective, published by Daylight Books. The publication is a survey of Bergerson's illustrious 50-year career which began in the 1970s with his exploration of performance art, drawing, painting and printmaking, before embracing photography exclusively. His early imagery includes an investigation of vernacular photography by manipulating found family snapshots to imbue them with new meanings, and the creation of grid-based works presenting multiple images that comment on the excesses of consumer culture.
Josephine Sacabo: Those Who Dance
A Gallery for Fine Photography is pleased to present THOSE WHO DANCE, a new collection of twenty-one 25 x 19" hand-pulled photogravures printed on Japanese kozo by contemporary artist Josephine Sacabo. THOSE WHO DANCE tells the story of Nahui Olin, an incomparable woman born into and later expelled from Mexico's high society in the early 20th century, who was both artist and muse to the likes of Diego Rivera and Edward Weston. Sacabo's images embody the mystery and otherworldly quality of their subject, a woman who refused to capitulate to the boundaries of her societal milieu and was punished severely for it. Sacabo recasts this injustice as a moment of triumph - her photographs express the beautiful, joyful abandon in dancing to the music of one's own soul.

27th Bayeux Calvados-Normandy Award for War Correspondents
Break indifference to conflicts. It's in this logic that the Bayeux Calvados-Normandy Award for War Correspondents was created.

Every year the Town of Bayeux, the Department of Calvados, the Normandy Region and their partners join forces to hold a unique event dedicated to a unique profession. The job of war correspondents is essential and serves as a barometer for democracies, yet it is little known and can be subject to abuse.

L’oeil Urbain Photographic Festival
Sub-Saharan Africa is highlighted in this eighth edition of the Urban Eye festival; a territory of 48 states located south of the Sahara, so vast that it might seem futile to hope to encompass it and to define its contours in terms of photography. The pitfall is indeed to approach the subject from the angle of stereotypes, of the postcard in search of picturesque and a certain miserabilism where it would only be a question of slavery and colonialism. Generalities cannot take precedence over the contemporary reality of this vast territory, above all remarkable for its diversity. The vitality of current photography in Africa is a reflection of this excitement of a continent in turmoil in a globalized world; an emerging contemporary photography carried by a young generation of talented African photographers.
