leave a comment »

Beginning this Thursday, Art Wolfe’s images from Travels to the Edge are being exhibited at the FiftyCrows Gallery which consist of incredible views of the worlds most exotic places, people and wildlife. Viewing the images is a trip around the world in itself, but how amazing would it be to actually go around the world with Art and photograph tigers, Kazakhs hunters, and the moonrise over the Himalayas? Art offers international photography workshops in India, Vietnam and Cambodia, and Myanmar that will be taking place in January and February of 2010. This is an opportunity of a lifetime to travel with a world-renowned photographer and focus on creating breath-taking images, as well as discuss matters of environmental and cultural conservation.

Come to the FiftyCrows Gallery on this Thursday, November 19th from 5:00-7:30pm to meet Art Wolfe and see his images from Travels to Edge. Art will be signing copies of his book, Travels to the Edge and feel free to ask him questions about his travels and workshops.

Also, friend of FiftyCrows, Colin Finlay will be leading a workshop at the Annenberg space on:


Description: Colin Finlay’s workshop is committed to exploring the photograph and the written word. To finding that sacred place within your soul, your other voice. To creating your new language, not constricted, taught or created by anyone but yourself. The day will seek to open wide a new level of self examination and explore the uncharted levels of your potential, a sharpening of the knife you hold within. During the course of this hands-on workshop, Colin will explore his process and photographs along with his own storytelling narratives and how they both inform and expand the visual language of the photograph.

Students should bring a digital portfolio/presentation of 20 images of their work and written journals if you have them.

Time: 10 am to 5 pm with a break for lunch

Fee: $250 per person and includes a signed copy of either TESTIFY or ANTARCTICA/SUDAN

Registration: Please register here.

Class Limit: 16 students

leave a comment »

PiconeIn 2003 Jack Picone won the FiftyCrows IFDP award for his photo essay that looked at the AIDS epidemic in Thailand. The intention of his images was to give a voice to the courage and compassion of HIV-infected people who face social ostracism and stigmatization. For over a decade, Picone has been involved with photographing people and communities with AIDS as part of a London-based project called “Positive Lives.”


Picone has covered eight wars and photographed extensively in Yugoslavia, Somalia, Rwanda, Palestine, Liberia, Sudan, Central Asia, Europe, Australia and Thailand. His list of publications and awards rivals the countries he has traveled to and include World Press Photo, Amsterdam, Photographer of the Year, America and most recently UNESCO Documentary Award.

Picone resides in Bangkok and conducts photojournalism workshops throughout Asia. This year the workshop will take place in Australia from October 8th -13th in Sydney and between November 7th – 12th in Melbourne.


Jack Picone is currently working on a book titled “Blood and Love,” which overviews the past 25 years of his work.
