2014 Update


Another year came and went.

I am still here. I didn’t post often last quarter. I have just been quite busy. There is always an expectation that after you haven’t posted a while, the new post have to be long, thoughtful, better, etc. That was a daunting task. Especially now that the blog is nearing its fifth birthday, and I have pretty much covered and retreaded a lot of topics.

This blog has always been about history as much as it is about photos. My interpretation of recent history will chafe a lot of hardcore academics but popular history as a genre exists for a reason.

Lastly, a journalist based in Montevideo has requested to translate some of my work on IP into Spanish. Thomas Lyford-Pike has done a great job and now you can read Fotos Icónicas in Spanish here (Although I suspect you don’t really need to, since you are already reading this in English!) I guess it is a good thing that photoliteracy is reaching a wider audience.

That’s all for now.

  1. Good thing you’ve find someone to translate into Spanish as I have think of that my self for sometime but never came out (maybe too busy 🙂
    Great blog, keep on rocking and greettings from Madrid

  2. Dear Alex:

    When is your book coming out? I love the blog, and learn so much from it. Thank you for your work on this. It is significant.

    Peace and good things,

  3. It’s great to have it available in spanish as well. I have been following you for some time now, and always share your photos (I administrate the fb page of a Photography Galery in Querétaro, Mexico), but most of our followers don’t speak english.
    Great blog, always filled with interesting stuff. (:
