We Are the Youth by Laurel Golio and Diana Scholl

I came across this project via LPV magazine, a good introduction to the work:

 We Are the Youth is a photographic journalism project chronicling the individual stories of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender youth in the United States. Through photographic portraits and written interviews highlighting the participants’ voices, We Are the Youth captures the incredible diversity and uniqueness among the LGBT youth population.

Little Brown Mushroom Books

Yesterday, two books arrived at my doorstep from Alec Soth's book company, Little Brown Mushroom.
The first book/magazine Lonely Boy Mag, Alec Soth's Midwestern Exotica, was much more engaging than I expected, especially the series of photos from a dating website called Goth Scene. The second book,  Conductors of the Moving World by Brad Zellar, include 60 c-prints, each book a bit different from the next. This book has an edition of only 500 with all proceeds going to Tsunami relief in Japan. If you haven't checked out the LBM website, now is the time.

Tim Hetherington's Video Diary

Photojournalist Tim Hetherington died today in Libya while covering the fighting between rebels and troops loyal to Colonel Muammar Qaddafi, the has confirmed. Hetherington died after being hit by rocket fire in the city of Misrata. 
This is his video piece "Diary" from 2010: 'Diary' is a highly personal and experimental film that expresses the subjective experience of my work, and was made as an attempt to locate myself after ten years of reporting. It's a kaleidoscope of images that link our western reality to the seemingly distant worlds we see in the media.
Also, more of his photographs can be seen here:

Dang, check out the work of Mark Powell

I am super busy this time of year, but when a friend sent me the link to Mark Powell's work, I knew I had to share. Besides the website being a bit of a beast to navigate and loud, oversized font, the pictures are surprising, funny and sad...I think you will agree.

Billy Maynard is 19.

I want to photograph a feeling I’ve had building inside since a young age. But without constructing any of the pictures deliberately. So far I have found this feeling is most often found in outsiders and fringe dwellers. I find myself more comfortable with outcasts. The feeling is growing bigger in me, so the pictures will follow.
