How to handle a memory card disaster and recover deleted photos

Signpost along the road to recovery.Our eyes were drawn to an article by Scott Daveley on PetaPixel about his experience of recovering photos from a corrupted memory card. In the process Daveley discovered a program that while helping him save his corrupted pictures also recovered photos from the card that he had previously deleted on his camera. However, we’ll leave speculation here as to why a photographer may find this a useful feature and instead focus on the less legally grey function of the program which is the file recovery process that Daveley undertook.

W. Eugene Smith Grant for 2014 calls for applicants

This year’s W. Eugene Smith grant for humanist photographers is now open. One photographer will be awarded $30,000 as a grant to complete a photo project that follows in the noble traditions of the late W. Eugene Smith. Smith’s photos famously captured the agony of World War 2 and the suffering of those caught in the midst of the action. In recent years those receiving the grant have been able to produce their own amazing and challenging collections of modern conflicts and problems, all sadly showing that the world has not really gone that far after all.
