Heroes: Mexican Photojournalist Braves Drug Crime Wave
The New York Times
Drug-related violence in Mexico has claimed the lives of some 45 journalists since 2007, but the danger is most acute in the state of Veracruz, where at least nine journalists have been killed in the past year and a half. Many others have stopped reporting on crime, but not photojournalist Alberto Morales of Multigrafica magazine. “You have to accept the fear, but not let it paralyze you,” he tells the New York Times. But Morales does take precautions: “I don’t label the dead or say who was who in a confrontation,” he says. Read the full Story >>

Followup: Court Orders Nikon to Allow "Comfort Women" Exhibition
Controversy surrounding the cancellation of an exhibition about World War II Korean “Comfort Women” at the Nikon Gallery in Tokyo grew more intense last week when a Japanese court ruled the show must go on. After Nikon cancelled the exhibition with no explanation, the show’s curator, Ahn Se-hong, launched a legal action to get the decision reversed, and on Friday the Tokyo District Court did so. Nikon said it would appeal the ruling, but a spokesperson has said that the exhibit would open as previously scheduled. Read the full Story >>

Books: Photographer Investigates the "Industrial Beauty Complex"
Photographer Cara Phillips’s new book Singular Beauty explores the infrastructure of what she calls the “Industrial Beauty Complex.” Phillips scoured the pages of fashion and beauty magazines to find top cosmetic surgeons, most of whom were happy to have her photograph their workplaces.

Prizes: July 25 Deadline for Visa Pour l'Image Web Doc Award
British Journal of Photography
This will be the fourth edition of the France 24-RFI Web Documentary Award, which is organized in partnership with the Visa Pour l’Image photojournalism festival in Perpignan, France. The award honors web documentaries distinguished by subject matter or innovative use of multimedia: Entries should not merely be links to videos on YouTube and Vimeo, says festival director Jean Francois Leroy. “A documentary you upload online isn't a web documentary. You need interactivity,” he tells the British Journal of Photography. Read the full Story >>

Cop Watch: Texas Man Records Arrest, Now Faces Prison
Carlos Miller at Pixiq adds more names to his Cop Hall of Shame with the story of an Austin, Texas, man who was arrested after snapping cell phone pix of policemen “manhandling a woman” during a DUI investigation. The man, Antonio Buehler, says Austin policeman Pat Oborski shoved him against his truck before handcuffing him. Oborski says Buehler resisted arrest…and spit on him. Buehler later found a video recording of the incident made by another witness that appears to contradict the cop’s story. Buehler’s not off the hook, however. Despicable. Read the full Story >>

Programming Note: Evil Marketing Genius Tells All Tomorrow
Photo entrepreneur Chase Jarvis will be interviewing marketing wunderkind Ryan Holliday tomorrow on his live webcast, and we’ll be watching. Holliday, 24, is director of marketing for American Apparel and author of the new book Trust Me, I’m Lying: Confessions of a Media Manipulator.
