The New York Times’ European Picture Coordinator Daphné Anglès has selected her favourite photojournalism and documentary photography images from those submitted to Editor's Choice 2 in August by CPN readers around the world. In a multimedia presentation she chooses 30 pictures and talks in detail about her favourite 10 images. She also explains how she works with photographers and how up-and-coming photographers can approach her at the publisher’s Paris bureau.
Anglès told CPN that she likes to meet photographers face to face in Paris or at festivals such as Arles and Visa pour l’Image in Perpignan, France. “Knowing the human being behind the photos helps me to understand how he or she produces work. The relationship between an editor and a photographer is very important.” She added that The New York Times website features a dedicated photography section called Lens Blog which shows uncommissioned work that photographers have submitted to the site.
Editor's Choice links photographers with the world's best photo editors. It allows CPN readers to have their work seen at the highest level and gives editors the chance to see new talent from around the world. Editor's Choice 2 follows the success of the first edition of Editor's Choice last year, in which more than 11,000 images were entered. Photographers using Canon cameras are able to upload their images for review by a leading picture editor. A different genre of photography is covered each month. For July, the category was sports photography; this month it's travel, landscape and architecture photography, and Karin Rogers from GEO Saison is on hand to review your images - you can upload your pictures until 30 September. The category for October will be commercial, advertising and fashion photography.
Daphné Anglès and CPN would like to thank all of those photographers who submitted their images to Editor's Choice 2.
