A great video on Steve McCurry and his works done by koosjevanmaaren (watch it in 480P). Steve McCurry, recognized universally as one of today’s finest image-makers, has won many of photography’s top awards. Best known for his evocative color photography, McCurry, in the finest documentary tradition, captures the essence of human struggle and joy. A high point in his career was the rediscovery of the previously unidentified Afghan refugee girl that many have described as the most recognizable photograph in the world today.
The second video feature here is done by goseney.
According to Vogue, the famous “waif” picture of Kate Moss, taken for German Vogue by Albert Watson in 1993, fetched £16,250 at an auction last Friday night in London. This one sure is one of my favorite of Kate, well worth it I would say.

We had great fun at BarCamp Hong Kong 2011 which was successfully held yesterday. Kudos to the organizers and see you all next year.
[Updating: Will be uploading more pictures here as the week goes. We shot far too many and need some time to go through all the pictures, so come back and check it out during the week.]
More pictures after the jump…..
BarCamp was born in Palo Alto, California in 2005. In just three years, it became an international network of user generated conferences–open, participatory workshop-events with content provided by the attendees. It often focuses on early-stage Web applications and related open-source technologies, social protocols and open data formats.
In short, BarCamp is an ad-hoc “unconference” born from the desire for people to share and learn in an open environment. It is an intense event with discussions, demos and interaction from attendees. Anyone with something to contribute or with the desire to learn is welcome and invited to join.
In Chinese: BarCamp 是個自發、平實的研討會﹐讓大家有一個開放的空間﹐彼此分享和學習。 這個活動由參與者帶動﹐進行各式各樣的討論、示範, 讓大家打成一片。任何人有點子想獻給大家﹐或想找東西學習﹐那就對了！歡迎您來參加！
The first BarCamp in Hong Kong was held in Yahoo Hong Kong’s office in 2007 with only 100 attendees and 30 sessions. Since then it has grown to become the biggest unconference in town.
Last year’s Barcamp had 70 sessions covering topics like open source, cloud computing, accessibility, social enterprise, design thinking and more, drawing more than 700 participants from all walks of the Internet in Hong Kong: Entrepreneurs, designers, programmers, photographers, film makers, media owners, bloggers and investors.
This year marks the fifth BarCamp in Hong Kong and it would be held at The Run Run Shaw Creative Media Centre, Cornwall Street, Kowloon Tong, Hong Kong tomorrow, 12 November 2011. More than 700 have signed up for this year’s event.
If you happened to be in Hong Kong, come and join us. It’s guaranteed to be a full day of fun learning with both tech and non-tech stuff. To signup, go to the official Web site at http://barcamp.hk/.
This year, PASM Workshop is the proud photography sponsor of the event, hope to see you all there.
