a week in photography

Did you know that when NASA set out on its quest to reach the moon it had no plans for how it would be photographed? The first astronauts took cameras they bought themselves, from local drugstores. The Hasselblad debuted when Walter Schirra bought one from a Houston camera shop and had NASA engineers modify it for space. These are among the fascinating facts in this Collector’s Issue which brings you the photographic story of the 20th-century’s greatest achievement. And nothing conveys the beauty and fragility of our little blue home, or the importance of looking after it, like William Anders’s iconic ‘Earthrise’ – we tell you the story behind what I consider to be the most important photo ever taken. Finally, you may never get to visit the moon, but…

Frogs Canon EOS 77D, 100mm f/2.8, 1/160sec at f/16, ISO 100 by Helen Davies THIS picture of frogs was uploaded to our Twitter page using the hashtag #appicoftheweek. It was taken by photographer Helen Davies. She tells us, ‘I attended a “Just Frogs” photography workshop at Liberty's Owl, Raptor and Reptile Centre in Ringwood, Hampshire, the other day. It has a studio set up for photographing the frogs, using studio lights. We started off with one frog then introduced another one. When they sat together they looked so appealing, so I took the shot, focusing on the eye closest to the camera.' IMAGES MAY BE USED FOR PROMOTION PURPOSES ONLINE AND ON SOCIAL MEDIA…

PHOTOGRAPHER Ralph Morse captured this photograph in 1964, and it shows new astronauts Ted Freeman (bottom), Buzz Aldrin (centre) and Charlie Bassett (top) experiencing zero gravity in NASA's Boeing KC-135 aircraft – affectionately known as the ‘vomit comet'. Ralph was a staff photographer for LIFE magazine and he captured some of the most pivotal events of the 20th century, from World War II to the United States space program.

nadav kander and alamy in ‘photo of a photo’ row

A DISPUTE has erupted between celebrated portrait photographer and artist Nadav Kander, The Big Issue magazine and major stock library Alamy. In a recent post on his Instagram page, Kander accuses The Big Issue of publishing a photo (via Alamy) of one of his most famous images – a portrait of film director David Lynch – without his permission. ‘A “photographer” goes to one of my exhibitions and photographs my framed print of David Lynch,' a clearly aggrieved Kander writes. ‘He uploads this picture to Alamy. Now this week The Big Issue publishes an interview with David and buys this despicably shot picture of my photograph, crops in and uses it on the cover…. Unbelievable blatant copyright infringement… I would never have wanted this photograph sold.' A representative of The Big…
