I had an idea...wouldn't it be good if we could post classic photos on ePHOTOzine and then have a debate about them?

I started making contact with people like Magnum and got an initial cold response, but after a bit of work I've got a few helpful people to allow me to use pictures in this section.

The idea is I'll dig out one photo each week and post it into the gallery here. You can then discuss the photo. I've started off with a World Press Photo winner and will hopefully move on to classics from the past, as well as winners from other major competitions.

I hope you join the group and discuss the first photo.

The more get involved the better a resource it will be. In hope you grasp the concept and run with it Smile

Must admit that many of the Magnum photos I've seen are, on the surface, not that interesting - just look like random snaps.

Then if you look a bit longer, you start to see the more and more, especially connections between people and things - well in some anyway.

So a thread like you're suggesting would be interesting - a bit like somone explaining what the hell Shakespeare's wierd words actually mean Wink

Thanks for your comments on the first shot in this new feature. That certainly worked as a debate. I've posted the second picture up now...this time a classic documentary photograph - Dorothea Lange's Migrant Mother. I hope you find time to join and comment.

I remember the impact that this made on me the first time I saw it, its very powerful emotionally and also tells the story of the time ,showing the stress (anguish) associated with moving a young family into a new environment.

I don't think it would work as well in colour?

Not a genre of photography I have any skill in but I admire those who can create this type of narrative work

Great idea, Pete! I've already attempted a short summary of 'Migrant Mother'...

Please provide more images, may be one per day, it is going to be very interesting, if possible you can also pick one every day from the EPZ gallery...

I like the idea of posting something current with a similar feel so that we can compare

i like this idea but where ive seen similar, the tendency is for people to comment on the image and not interact with each other in discussion which is the bit that would make this really worthwhile.

it would be excellent if one was generated at random (from a selection ticked in acceptance of the author) in the way the featured e2 is and that be the subject of discussion or maybe, and this would be even more interesting, - from the highest click count image of the day.

I'd prefer to keep it to one per week then we may get more interactivity and it becomes a better feature.

Excellent Pete, already joined this group.

If you get the chance Pete, check out the work of Lee Miller from fashion model to fashion photographer to war photographer.
