Crowdsourcing Project Reveals Trove of Soldier’s Own World War I Photographs
Тэги: Historical
World War I was the first time soldiers brought hand-held cameras to battlefields. The soldiers' pictures offer insights into the camaraderie and conditions of their daily lives during the conflict that official war photographers were unable to access. Some 400 photos taken by a German dispatch runner were recently recovered and displayed on Europeana 1914-18. See some of those photos.

Crowdsourcing Brings Historical Archive Online
Тэги: Historical
In an effort to bring the George Eastman House archive online, Dr. Anthony Bannon, Director at George Eastman House in Rochester New York, has announced partnership with Clickworker, an international crowdsourcing company. The project involves photo-tagging of more than 400,000 images from the George Eastman House, one of the world’s oldest photography museums. Using a guided and tiered tagging system, Clickworker hopes to bring the Eastman archive into the digital age, making the photographs accessible to the public — in many instances, for the very first time. To get these images online, Clickworker is using its global crowd of paid "clickworkers', more than 115,000 strong.

Mitch Epstein’s Berlin
Тэги: Historical
Mitch Epstein's new book Berlin, published in September by Steidl, is a rich and detailed collection. Epstein shows us a city nearly devoid of people, under pale blue skies. He directs his lens at architecture, art, infrastructure and other markers of history that Berliners have purposefully left behind as reminders. A personal foreword by Epstein offsets the cool and precise images. Epstein explains that he came from a Jewish American family that refused to visit Germany because of kin lost in the Holocaust. Breaking with family tradition, Epstein visited Germany and found Berlin to be a source of fascination. He and his family moved to Germany for a 6 month residency at the American Academy in Berlin.

The View from Ground Zero
Тэги: Historical
"The day the bomb was dropped, I was up at dawn cleaning my camera. A number of us were in two-person trenches about four miles from ground zero. That was the closest, at the time, that human beings were placed. They had sheep tied up at Ground Zero! We were told that the shock wouldn't reach us for 20 seconds after the blast. The officer with me and I stuck our heads deep down as the time approached. At the moment of the blast, it was as if someone had triggered a large flash bulb in the trench. I counted to four and stood up to take a shot, as did my companion, and the shock wave hit us. I was knocked backward, and he fell into the trench, looking dead to me. I thought I was dead too, but I realized if all this was going through my thoughts and vision I couldn't be too dead. Then he came out of shock, and I knew we were both OK. I blew the dust off my lens and took my shot. The picture was not of a mushroom cloud (you had to be pretty far away to get that view), but from underneath, mostly of a ring of fire around us. The picture appeared in Life magazine, credited as a US Army Photograph."
