On the heels of his prize winning book "No Direction Home", photographer Andrej Krementschouk (*1973 in Gorky) once again tells a moving story about homeland and homelessness, roots and identity. The setting is a dilapidated old cottage in the center of a small Russian town, where a group of orphanage-raised homeless people have made a home for themselves. When Krementschouk chanced upon this group in 2006, they invited him inside where he captured both moments of despair and addiction but also warmth and tenderness.

In Round 5 of the ongoing Ping Pong discussions with Joerg Colberg of Conscientious we discuss propaganda and the difficulties involved with interpreting photography from other cultures.

MI: Hi Joerg, I’ve just returned from a government sponsored photo tour of a few cities in eastern China and thought it might be an interesting catalyst for discussion.

Rome, Tod Papageorge

If you are lucky enough to be in Rome this Fall, make sure you visit The Rome International Festival of Photography (FotoGrafia Festival Internazionale di Roma - IX Edizione.) This year’s theme is “Can photography see into the future? Is there a future for photography?” Of special note is new work by Tod Papageorge, whose fairly recent appearances in books and exhibitions in the United States and United Kingdom have presented us with work he made in black-and-white in the Seventies.

French Nazi Collaborator Carl Mydans for LIFE

Online now at LIFE magazine's website are disturbing and chilling photographs of the last seven minutes on Earth of six French collaborators, as they are tied to stakes and killed by firing squad in 1944. LIFE photographer Carl Mydans and correspondent John Osborne were  the witnesses to the executions in the French Alps. 66 years ago, almost to the day, resistance fighters came together in Grenoble to execute these men who had worked for the Milice, the Vichy police. These pictures first ran in LIFE on October 2, 1944, just one month after they were taken. The slide show is long and feels complete, and shows the men before, during and after their deaths. The photos taken at the moment of fire are blurry from the shock of the shots, and you swear that you see ghosts beside each man. What we don't see much of is the audience, described on LIFE.com by Osbourne: "They might have been hurrying to a circus.

"This is a study of a home, of a particular idea of home at a particular time in our history.  This is the study of the lives of people whose paths crossed whilst in a camp on 45 square miles of Cuba, cut off from the rest of the world by razor wire and water.
