Getty Images Archive represents portrait and documentary photographer Evelyn Hofer

clickfor all Evelyn Hofer images

Getty Images Archive are now representing the work of German-American portrait and documentary photographer Evelyn Hofer (b.1922 d.2009).
They say: ‘Described as the most famous unknown photographer in America, Hofer has recently enjoyed a major revival of interest. Her pioneering early colour work, which aimed to transcend documentary photography, took its characteristic and evocative style from the precision and pace at which she worked with larger format cameras. With a career spanning half a century her noted works run the gamut from portraits to painterly still lifes to finely considered landscape work.’

Shutterstock Sequence
Shutterstock have launched Sequence to enable anyone to easily mock up a video by matching video and music from the Shutterstock collection, with footage and audio of their own.
They say: Sequence is a lightweight, easy-to-use video editing tool which lives entirely within your Chrome browser window. With Sequence, anyone can quickly search through over two million Shutterstock videos and audio tracks, dragging and dropping the files to build a video with ease. Once the video takes shape, it’s remarkably easy to save and share what you’ve created with friends and colleagues.
In addition to working with Shutterstock’s videos and music tracks, Sequence allows users to upload video and audio files of their own – by simply dragging and dropping them into the timeline from their desktop.
Available in Chrome now, the plan is to roll the tool out to additional browsers later this year.
