David Burnett has a talent to spot the right place and time to make a great picture. But this time around, though, it was him that was spotted. Check out this candid picture of David Burnett taking pictures at the Olympics with an analogue camera!
Your eyes are not fooling you! That is actually David Burnett at the Olympic 2012, taking pictures with an old school analogue camera. How cool is that! Still not convinced? Here’s a close up.
David Burnett has plenty of experience as a photojournalist. His works covers 4 decades of news and the people in the news. He is currently the co-founder of Contact Press Images,the New York based photojournalism agency, now entering its 37th year. He has photographed seven summer Olympics.
The photo you will see next is a very iconic photo of the Olympics in 1984 by Burnett himself. It was a 3,000-meter women’s footrace showdown between Mary Decker and Zola Budd. Burnett was feeling too overcrowded at the finish line, so he walked halfway back up the track. It was a good decision indeed, because it gave him this very picture that made the Olympics mean more than just sports.

"Grandpa's Photos" is exactly what it says on the title - vintage photographs taken by an Australian man named Stephen Clarke who frequently went on trips around the world. But make no mistake in concluding that it's simply a showcase; Clarke's grandson, Dave Tomkins, has also taken it upon himself to honor his late grandfather as a talented photographer. In this interview, Tomkins introduces him to us and shares the idea behind his personal project.

Alfred Eisenstaedt was one of Life Magazine's greatest photographers, known for his ability to immortalize the storytelling moment of many public events in history. To write this tribute to him, I chose a subject that he photographed in different places and times: card players in public places.
