Magnum Photographers Release Previously Unpublished and Forgotten Images for Print Sale

magnum-photographers

“Sometimes it’s good to revisit old contact sheets. You may discover overlooked snaps. It seems that some pictures get better when they age while others turn out to have a short shelf life. This is one of many photographs I’ve taken of Muhammad Ali, some of which are well-known, some unknown. This particular image is from 1966, while Ali was training for a fight in London. Honestly, I can’t recall much more than that, except that when Ali worked the speedball, he punished it.”  — Photographer Thomas Hoepker

If you’re looking for a little something for your apartment, the world’s most famous photo agency, Magnum, is having a print sale right now until November 14th. Magnum photographers have dug deep into their personal archives to find previously unpublished images, and for $100 you can snag a signed museum quality print of any of them.

Take a look here: Magnum Photographers Print Sale.

@Booooooom Instagram Project: #PortraitsandSongs

portraitsandsongs-project

We’ve been getting so many great submissions to our Instagram project this month. In case you missed it, it’s called “Portraits and Songs” and the instructions are simple: Share a portrait you took of someone, pair it with a song title/artist, and tag it #portraitsandsongs. I will be re-gramming submissions to @booooooom all month long!

 

The images above (clockwise from the top left):

“Here Comes The Sun” – The Beatles, Portrait by @saraheiseman

“Black Water” – Timber Timbre, Portrait by @brittanycalla

“October” – Broken Bells, Portrait by @cleogoossens

Best of Instagram: Week 22

Here’s this week’s Best of Instagram post, a selection of 5 photographers worth following. I’m making a conscious effort here to highlight work that challenges or completely disregards what is usually popular on Instagram.

Guest posters often take over the @Booooooom Instagram, so if you’d like to be considered for a future “Best of” post you can connect with me on my personal Instagram account @JeffHamada. Please, for the love of God, do not tag or @ me in a million photos in a row (one is good enough).

You can, and should, also leave a comment below with a link to your Instagram along with an image from your feed!

Best of Instagram: Week 20

Here’s this week’s Best of Instagram post. As always, I am trying to feature photographers with smaller followings and making a conscious effort to feature photography that isn’t the heavily filtered style that has become synonymous with Instagram.

Guest posters regularly take over the @Booooooom Instagram, so if you’d like to be considered for a future “Best of” post you can connect with me on my personal Instagram account @JeffHamada. You can and should leave a comment below with a link to your Instagram along with an image from your feed!

Mossless: The United States (2003 – 2013)

mossless-issue3

Not too long ago I posted about the folks at Mossless putting together an epic book of 550 photos taken within the United States in the last 10 years. The collection represents more than 100 contemporary photographers. Well, now they need help picking a cover! If you submit a vote you’re automatically entered to win a free copy of the book.

I think the photo above, by Nathanael Turner, is my choice. You can see all the choices, and get more information about the book, here.

Best of Instagram: Week 17

It’s been awhile since I did a Best of Instagram post! Once again I tried to find photographers with smaller followings. Everyone here has less than 1000 followers with the exception of Pavielle. Caitlyn posted a link to her Instagram in the Week 16 Post and I was surprised to find she only has 60 followers (let’s change that!).

Guest posters are always taking over our @Booooooom Instagram, so if you’d like to be considered for a future “Best of” post you can definitely connect with me on my personal Instagram account @JeffHamada. You can and should also leave a comment below with a link to your Instagram along with an image from your feed!

50 Photos by 50 Photographers (2013)

In keeping with tradition, I present you with my year-end photo post! But first, part of the tradition is to also share a little bit about the growth of the site in the last year.

It’s only been 3 months since @Booooooom launched on Instagram, and there are already close to 14,000 of you following along! I owe a big thank you to the guest posters that have taken over the account each week – thank you, thank you, thank you. Our Twitter and Facebook now have a combined following of over 200,000, which is incredible, but the craziest growth has been on Google+. It’s hard to fathom that a year ago we had 300 followers on there, and today there are over 1.9 million. Kinda wild!

A little update on our first-ever Booooooom Book, it’s in its final stages, and will be finished really soon. I’m not used to working on a project for so long but it’s been a great experience working with Chronicle Books. It’s gonna be amazing to finally share it with you all.

I looked back at the goals I mentioned in my previous year-end post and one of them was to have a physical space for Booooooom. Well, I’m excited to say I finally have a space, and I’ll share more about it soon.

There’s a small part of me that feels extremely satisfied with the incredible growth the site has experienced this year. The other part of me though, the part that makes up most of me, is completely unsatisfied. I was too safe this year, my dreams were all entirely possible. I didn’t realise it until now, so I’m dreaming super naive impossible dreams for 2014. These past five years, all of it, it’s all still the beginning. It would be really dumb to be satisfied with the beginning.

Here are 50 photos by 50 photographers (technically 52 photographers, two images are collaborations). Not every image here was produced this year, I just came across them all in the last 12 months. Enjoy.
