  9. Bertien van Manen’s best photograph: an Appalachian girl applying makeup

    'The rest of us put on masks, but the people in the Appalachians are just the way they are'

    In 1985, I hired a pickup truck and travelled all over Tennessee, West Virginia and Kentucky getting to know women coal-miners and their families. I grew up in a mining area in the Netherlands, and had just been taking photos in the coal fields of West Yorkshire. I was keen to see how the ways of life compared.

    I’d never visited the Appalachians before and was struck by the beautiful mountains. But I wasn’t ready for the human chaos. Sometimes, the miners had little houses, but more often they were squeezed into caravans, mobile homes or whatever they could build in the woods. Many of them had Scottish or Irish roots: their ancestors had been pressed into service on cotton plantations in South Carolina, having been plucked from the streets or orphanages and set to work almost as slaves. After escaping to the forests, they kept to themselves and were suspicious of strangers. They still are.

  10. Sample Images: Sony RX100 Mark III Advanced Compact Camera

    Photo by Dan Bracaglia

    Low-light sample images from Sony’s latest advanced compact 

    Sony’s RX100 Mark II has been one of the best advanced compact cameras on the market, so we have high expectations for the follow up, the Sony RX100 Mark III. We got some time to shoot with the camera and its new pop-up viewfinder in its natural habitiat at night in NYC.

    We were also pleased with the initial low-light, high-ISO sample images. We’ll have to wait until we get the camera in the test lab to say for sure how it resolves all the way up at ISO 12,800. For the sake of comparison, check out the sample galleries from the other RX100 models below.
