time “I think the smartphone is a radical change,” explains photographer and film maker Henry Jacobson, who curated the exhibition 'The Space Between: Redefining Public and Personal in Smartphone Photography,' on display at the Center for Photography at Woodstock (@cpwwpc) through Sept.15, 2014. “The fact that everyone is a photographer has changed the way that everyone thinks about photography. It’s become about the sharing of experience, rather than the sharing of a moment, and that’s something that I think is entirely new.” (Photo by @dannyghitis and @dzalcman@echosite) See the story on lightbox.time.com 5d

time Summer might be coming to an end, but for Polish photographer Michal Solarski it's just the beginning as he takes a trip down memory lane, looking back at past family vacations to the "Hungarian Sea." “For us everything was new,” remembers Solarski. "The fancy cars driven by the tourists from West Germany or Austria, the shops with assortments that, for us, were virtually mind blowing, and the ice-cream in all possible flavors and colors. It was impossible to experience that in 1980s Poland, where shops were still only offering basic goods.” (Photo by Michal Solarski) See the story on lightbox.time.com 6d

More than a week after Michael Brown, an unarmed black teenager, was shot to death by police officer Darren Wilson, Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon has imposed a curfew and deployed the National Guard. "I can tell you now, this is only the beginning,” says photographer Jon Lowenstein (@jonlowenstein), who is in Ferguson for TIME. “It isn't going to end soon."

time #TIMEDISPATCH - Ferguson, Mo., Aug. 14, 2014. After days of violent protests and controversial police tactics in Ferguson, Mo., Gov. Jay Nixon appointed Ron Johnson, an African-American Captain with the Missouri State Highway Patrol, to assume control of police operations. As photographer Jon Lowenstein, dispatched by TIME, witnessed last night, protestors were able to peacefully remember Michael Brown, the unarmed black teenager shot last weekend by Officer Darren Wilson. "I've never seen anything quite like it in the U.S.," says Lowenstein (@jonlowenstein). "The scene resembled a gigantic street party, which was managed mainly by middle-aged African-Americans. For most of the night, the police were nowhere to be seen." (Photo by Jon Lowenstein for TIME) See TIME's full coverage of the Ferguson protests on time.com 3w
  •   markmancini46 @simplylauren152 You're so correct. I'm not judging anyone's guilt or innocence...but theres always a group that look for any excuse they can find to cause a commotion or riot...right or wrong. I'm guessing that the vast majority of these people didn't know Mr. Brown( yes...he was an adult male...not a child as has been out out there) nor do they really care about him or his family. They're just looking to get on the news and raise their fists in unity....then holding out the other hand looking for something. Don't let the haters give you a hard time because they can't ...and won't face the truth! 2w
  •   melijanotes I hope we get all the information about what exactly happened that day, and about whether Mike Brown tried to get the officers gun or not so these country-dividing race-charged debates can end. As my husband, who has worked for federal security and is NOT WHITE said "If ANYONE goes for my gun, no matter what race or age they are, I will pull my gun on them and disable them whatever the means." If you've got guts to try to grab a cop's/law enforcer's gun, you know you're setting yourself up for something serious, it's no longer a cute game. 2w
