NYT’s Lens Blog is On Hiatus, Where Can We Find Great Photography?

The New York Times Lens blog announced that after 10 years, its going on “temporary hiatus” – a victim of the change in technology-driven consumption habits of photography. From its humble beginnings, it grew into a photography blog that had the might of a “newspaper of record,” pushing documentary photography to a much larger audience than industry-specific blogs could.

Lens didn’t exist without criticism. Some photographers bemoaned the poor compensation for their often self-financed projects that took years to produce. But in a sea of sites like My Modern Met, Bored Panda, and the ilk, Lens at least offered something.

In this episode of Vision Slightly Blurred, Sarah and Allen contemplate the legacy of Lens and what other sites might fill the void. 

We mention the following photographers, articles, and websites in this episode:
