The big picture: a shuttered seafront at sunset

12 Jul 2020 - 07:00 from www.guardian.co.uk

Max Miechowski's shot of a closed-up ice-cream parlour alludes to the precarity of seaside towns

Last summer, the photographer Max Miechowski set out to travel the east coast of England, starting in Felixstowe and heading up toward Hartlepool and beyond. Miechowski, 30, grew up a few miles outside Lincoln, and day trips and holidays were mainly to the seaside towns of Yorkshire or Norfolk, so he knew some of the places already. This picture was taken in Skegness, in the early evening, just after the ice-cream parlour had shut up for the day. It has, he suggests, taken on an added poignancy with the events of the past months - the uncertainty of closure set against the hope for brighter months ahead.

Artist Han Cao lives in Orange County, California, and has spent lockdown hand-embroidering floral masks on vintage photographs from the 1900s-1940s, "as a reminder of how other generations have weathered storms like these". "Embroidery is almost meditative," she says. "It makes me slow down and be present - something we always forget to do in this digital age."

10 Jul 2020 - 10:00 from www.guardian.co.uk

The American photographer was a pioneering voice in documenting the everyday radical divide

When Life magazine sent the African American photographer Gordon Parks to create a photo essay, The Restraints Open and Hidden, exploring the impact of the Jim Crow laws in 1956 Alabama, he was well established as a pioneering voice. He had first made his mark at the magazine in 1948 capturing the secret world of a Harlem teen gang.

'People want blood and gore': what we got wrong about filming sharks

10 Jul 2020 - 04:00 from www.guardian.co.uk

From Jaws to James Bond, film-makers have tried to make a fish not inclined to bite humans look hell-bent on doing so

"You convince yourself that there is no danger," Ron Taylor once said of how he captured his groundbreaking underwater footage of sharks. And afterwards, "You wonder how you got out of it alive."

In 1970, Australian divers Taylor and his wife, Valerie, set out with the directors Peter Gimbel and James Lipscomb on a global quest to find and film great white sharks. Even today, 50 years later, with sharks a familiar sight from our sofas, the footage the Taylors eventually succeeded in shooting is gripping.

All the action could be happening, and we had to rewind the camera

Mysterious and often misunderstood, the shark family is magically diverse - from glowing sharks to walking sharks to the whale shark, the ocean's largest fish. But these magnificent animals very rarely threaten humans: so why did dolphins get Flipper while sharks got Jaws?

Fiona Adams obituary

9 Jul 2020 - 17:49 from www.guardian.co.uk
Photographer whose images of 1960s musicians included memorable shots of the Beatles

In April 1963 the photographer Fiona Adams took a picture with her old twin-lens Rolleiflex that more than 40 years later Terence Pepper, the curator of the National Portrait Gallery's photographic collection, would describe as "one of the defining images of 20th-century culture".

It records a moment during a visit that four young men in dark suits and fancy footwear made to one of London's surviving wartime bombsites. This one was at the junction of Euston Road and Gower Street and its crater was still half-filled with calcified rubble. As instructed, the four positioned themselves a little behind the edge of the crater. Then, at Fiona's command, they jumped as high as they could.
