Think Tank Photo Announces About A Photograph™ Series

From Think Tank Photo:
We just released “About A Photograph,” a free video series at that features some of the world’s leading photographers recounting the events behind some of the most powerful images of our time. Narrated by the actual photographers who captured the images, each short video focuses on the forces that led up to that perfect moment in time when subject, story, setting, equipment, and photographer converged.
The videos will be found at http://blog.thinktankphoto.com/about-a-photograph/
The first video in the series features Agence France-Presse photographer Saul Loeb. In it he narrates the events that led him to capturing the iconic “Presidential Hug” image from the 2012 United States presidential campaign. His photo captures a Florida pizza shop owner lifting and bear-hugging a surprised President Obama. Said Loeb about that moment, “This could end up being the defining photo of the campaign season.”
“About A Photograph” is being produced by Kurt Rogers and Deanne Fitzmaurice, our co-founders and award-winning photojournalists. The video series will feature current as well as classic and historic photographs that span a range of styles, including documentary/photojournalistic, fine art, nature/environment, sports, and politics.
In reflecting on this new series, Kurt noted: “When we photojournalists go out on assignment we never know what awaits us. It is through our training as experts in sensing when and where events will unfold that we are able to capture images that best convey the story.
‘About A Photograph’ allows photographers, students, teachers, historians, and others to get inside the heads of these expert photographers at that fleeting moment of creation. The images being featured range from the beautiful to the tragic, from the humorous to the informative. The one trait they share is that all are memorable and capture the essence of visual storytelling.
We will release new “About A Photograph” videos every three weeks.
