Sites worth visiting, generally, but not necessarily, photography related
I've always loved the abstract patterns aerial photography makes of the earth. Drones seem to have brought that within the reach of more people, and some lovely work is coming out of it. This is a site that holds a drone photo contest.
Bill Brandt is one of my heroes. His photographs invariably show an unique and astonishing view, whether of East End (London) girls doing the Lambeth Walk, a stack of knees and an elbow, or a close-up of Giacometti's eye.
This website is an archive of Brandt's photographs, and they'll sell you prints! The bonus, from my perspective, is that they make my prints look affordable :-)
The Gage Gallery is an Arts Collective and Gallery. I exhibit there, and there are usually one or two of my photos available in the sale room, as well as some cards.
An online magazine of contemporary stuff - art, architecture, .... This link is to the photography section. They lean to the avant-garde and I frequently am not overwhelmed by their choices, but there is usually one or more sets of photos that open my eyes a little wider.
Irving Penn was another 20th-century master of photography. He shot fashion for Vogue and other magazines, but this was only a small part of his body of work. His photographs never cease to amaze and inspire me.
Lois Greenfield takes stunningly beautiful dance photographs; this is her website.
Michael Kenna makes absolutely gorgeous photographs and puts them into gorgeous books; none of which, alas, I can actually afford to buy. But do look at his work - it's admirable.
Another photographer with a unique way of seeing. If you come across any of his books, I recommend grabbing them immediately. Meantime, here's a website of his work.
Avedon, like Penn, was a photographer who did fashion but was never confined by it, working in many genres. His portraits are true portraits, revealing much about their subjects, never just photographs "of" someone.
Another photographer with a unique eye. Lovely work to be found here; the link is to her portfolio page. Some of her images can be seen larger here.
Not a photography blog per se - it has all kinds of images - rather a somewhat uneven but usually interesting image collection. Over time, I've seen a lot of good photographs there. The link is to the archive.
