They were the real passengers of the Concorde.” - A.A. Gill .

“When I was living in London in the early 70s there was a crazy television set in my house. By playing around with the antenna and tweaking the controls I could suddenly obtain fascinating colours. . This led me to spend a couple of months following the latest news as it happened from the first Apollo flights to the Munich Olympic Games, as well as American and English television series and ads. It made me see the world in a different way and to question the ever-growing influence of television throughout the world." . Harry Gruyaert discusses the origins of 'TV Shots', and the way it was received when it was first presented to the world in New York. Link in bio. . PHOTO: TV Shots. Television broadcast.

Harry Gruyaert's abstract and experimental 'TV Shots', seen as a distressed parody of a current affairs photo story, have a pop-art fascination with the everyday whilst acting as a document of the way millions of people experienced world-shaping events through their home televisions. . The work created controversy when first exhibited in 1974, with its disrespectful assault on the culture of television and its radical challenge to the conventions of press photography. .

PHOTO: Boys sleep near the museum in Hierapolis, an ancient site in Pamukkale. Pamukkale is the remarkably well-preserved site of the ancient Roman city "Hierapolis." Rich Romans came here for the “water cure” from the mineral springs. The site was damaged by earthquakes over centuries but the remains are still very impressive. It is now a Unesco World Heritage site. Most of the tourists are now Turkish, Arabic and Asian. The owner of a restaurant located in front of the site says "during weekends we have tourists, less than before but we have tourists. During the weekdays, we have no one."

Using photography to wade through deeply personal stories, Magnum nominee Sohrab Hura has employed sound to delve further into the medium for his new book, 'A Proposition for Departure'. The book is a blueprint for his experiments in sound that have proven both a point of departure from the photographic medium (hence the name) and have served as a door back into the practice. . Signed copies of the book are available now on shop.magnumphotos.com. . PHOTO: Sound Extraction G*, 8:15 minutes, Raw sound. Part of Larger Composition: A Proposition for Departure.
