United States, written by Jimmy Colton

As a former Chair of the World Press Photo Contest, I am saddened and deeply troubled by some of the results and aftermath of this year's contest.
Every year, without exception, there is always controversy surrounding the World Press Photo of the Year and other winners. That's the nature of our business. We all have different tastes, values and principles when it comes to the art of photojournalism, upon which this venerable contest has always been predicated. And "healthy" discussion is exactly that...healthy.

It’s one photo festival after another here, and none of them look alike in the city of Goa, which has become over the past few months one of the most interesting places for photography in India. Following the Sensorium Fest in December and January and the Goa Photo Festival a few weeks ago, Goa Photo will open on March 7th in the streets of Panaji.

We also have the opportunity in Panaji to see the wonderful work of photographer Gauri Gill, Balika Mela. In 2013, Gill was invited by an NGO to shoot a series of black-and-white portraits to take part in “mela,” the fairs that are still held throughout the Indian countryside. Seven years later, she returned to a mela in Lunkaransar, 300 kilometers from Jaipur, to photograph , only this time in color.

Almost fifty years after photographing the Selma March for Life Magazine, I decided to look back at my contact sheets from that period.
In the 60’s, as a photographer, you would send each day’s film you shot, overnight to the New York lab for processing. An editor would then go through the negatives and clip a small circle in the sprocket holes of what they thought was a possibility for magazine layout.

Sebastien Calvet is a photographer for the newspaper Liberation. He covers politics, especially the Socialist Party. On the evening of June 13, 2004, an election night that coincided with an important soccer match, Calvet found himself alone with François Hollande, who was awaiting the decision of a game-deciding penalty. Rien à voir: Twelve photographers tell the story of the photograph they didn't take.
