Talking with: Min-Jung Jonsson,
curator of the Fotografiska museum in Stockholm.
Portfolio: A Stage for the Unconscious. The fabulous world of Roger Ballen: intoxicating
black and white pictures staged in a Johannesburg slum
inhabited by people and animals.
Reportage: The Green Mile. Despite the heavy levels of radiation, nature reclaims the red zone around Fukushima. Three years after the disaster, evacuees are still living in emergency shelters.
Project: Fair Trade in the Caribbean. Mike Tinney accompanied a group of Slow Food activists who sailed to Grenada aboard a trading ketch, to import natural produce from the island to Great Britain.
Project: The Power of Reduction. With extremely reduced, square format pictures,
the Russian photographer Ekaterina Mishchenkova
primarily uses herself as her main subject.
Leica World: Image manipulation. Even documentary
photography often gets accused of image manipulation. Are there technical means to distinguish
between original and
Leica World: My lens. Compact and appropriate for many situations:

Leica World: Sensor formats. People are passionate about the subject of sensor formats. But there
is no ‘right’ one: each
format has advantages and disadvantages.
Reportage: Fighting for the Future. In the Ukraine the Klitschko brothers are the best
known boxing icons. Many children and youths in the country would like to emulate their success.
Leica Classics: Magic Moments. Herbert List went to professional photography quite
late in life. Influenced by the New Objectivity of the twenties, he tried to keep a distance from his subjects.
