    The Birmingham Police Department is facing backlash over a picture that went viral on social media. The picture shows Birmingham police officer Michelle Burton holding a baby whose parents had just overdosed. The father died and the mother is still in the hospital. Officer Burton ended up staying with the baby and her three siblings for more than six hours following the incident. Burton's husband posted the picture on social media last week praising his wife. However, family members of the baby shown in the picture were not happy. Mary Purnell Adalane, the aunt of the baby in the picture,...

    It's not every day that the New York Times blog devoted to photography -- it's called Lens -- runs a piece about Pine Bluff, Ark. (pop. 47,000). But it did just the other day when Evelyn Nieves' blog post featured the work of William Widmer, a photographer out of New Orleans who was driving through Pine Bluff on his way back home from an assignment in Kansas City, and was stopped cold by what he saw. The town had captivated him. The photographer would wind up spending the rest of the day in Pine Bluff walking its streets, snapping...

    On May 16, the eve of the 60th anniversary of the landmark Supreme Court decision that outlawed racial segregation in America's public schools, Michelle Obama traveled to Topeka, Kansas, to visit the Brown v. Board of Education National Historic Site. As the first lady toured the site with Stephanie Kyriazis, its chief of interpretation and education, she posed for a striking photograph that serves as a stark reminder of the segregation era. The image, taken by White House photographer Chuck Kennedy, was posted to the White House Flickr feed this week. After her tour, Mrs. Obama delivered an equally poignant...
  • Nazis’ ‘perfect Aryan’ baby was Jewish

    NY Post ^ | 7-2-14 | Chris Perez
    The joke’s on you! A baby in a photo chosen by Nazis as the perfect Aryan baby has been revealed to in fact be Jewish, not German. Hessy Taft, who was 6 months old when the picture was taken, found out about the photograph after an aunt recognized her on a postcard, the Telegraph reports. But apparently the Nazis had no idea that the precious baby they deemed the “perfect Aryan” was actually a descendant of the House of David. Taft lived with her parents, Jacob and Pauline Levinsons, in Berlin during the height of the Nazis’ takeover in 1935....

    ...Until now, there were only two verified photographs of Johnson (1911-1938), who remains the most inspirational musician produced by the Mississippi Delta and the man Eric Clapton once anointed as "the most important blues musician who ever lived". This weekend a third, newly cleaned-up and authenticated image has been released by the Johnson estate showing him standing next to musician Johnny Shines. Forensic work on the photograph began in 2007, when Lois Gibson, who works with the Houston police department, analysed the features of the long-fingered figure holding the guitar. Gibson, who found the identity of the sailor kissing the...

    I need help with a photo. Linked from The Blaze. This was floating around on the internet and I just happened to look at it, again. The younger brother (who police are chasing) is clearly pictured leaving (the one circled). If you look at the picture closely.....I think his older brother is on the right wearing khakis and that hat. Am I wrong? My son and I think it's him. He's near a baby stroller tucked behind another woman.

    One image sticks with me from Marine Week, the military celebration in Cleveland that wraps up tomorrow. It's not one of Marines in uniforms mingling in our bars and on our streets, or of their tanks and helicopters parked around downtown, or even of the somber evening taps ceremonies at Voinovich Park honoring the fallen. I keep coming back to the image of two girls, both 8, playing with shoulder-fired rocket launchers on Public Square. In this image, one girl's tiny hands are wrapped around the handle and trigger, her mouth propped wide open with laughter, her eyes closed. A...

Under the editorial control of Tina Brown, the rice paper magazine barely struggles against its bias towards conservative women to view them with anything other than contempt. Check out Newsweek’s latest cover, which they happily Tweeted out minutes ago:

    MOSUL Iraq — Until the past week, Samar Hassan had never glimpsed the photograph of her that millions had seen, never knew it had become one of the most famous images of the Iraq war. “My brother was sick, and we were taking him to the hospital and on the way back, this happened,” Samar said. “We just heard bullets. “My mother and father were killed, just like that.” The image of Samar, then 5 years old, screaming and splattered in blood after American soldiers opened fire on her family’s car in the northern town of Tal Afar in January...

    <p>A less festive bunch it’s hard to imagine. This is Hitler and his henchmen celebrating Christmas in 1941 – not that you’d know it from their glum expressions. These probably had something to do with the recent dispiriting failure of Nazi attempts to seize Moscow and take control of Russia.</p>

    The right of photographers to stand in a public place and take pictures of federal buildings has been upheld by a legal settlement reached in New York.In the ever-escalating skirmishes between photographers and security agencies, the most significant battlefield is probably the public way — streets, sidewalks, parks and plazas — which has customarily been regarded as a vantage from which photography cannot and should not be barred.Under the settlement, announced Monday by the New York Civil Liberties Union, the Federal Protective Service said that it would inform its officers and employees in writing of the “public’s general right to...
