A Leap Through the Looking Glass

By Beacon Staff

In Lewis Carroll’s Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There, the looking glass transports Alice to another world, opening up new perspectives. As another name for mirror, the looking glass can reflect ourselves and the world, often in surprising ways. It is a tool used for inspection, for overall views as well as great detail. This is the idea behind the newly expanded Looking Glass photoblog.

This is a place where we can inspect the world around us, through still images, video and even some audio. A place where we can celebrate visual journalism that captivates us and challenges us. Where we can ask “how-to” questions about techniques and discuss the technical side of photography, design and video, as well as the inspirations and ideas behind projects.

I would like to start by casting a wide net to also include conversations about Web site design, newspaper design and the changing journalism industry.

So what this blog is really going to need is your participation.

I would love your feedback, your photos and your questions: [email protected] or [email protected]. Please use something like Looking Glass as the subject so it doesn’t end up in the spam filter.

Thanks, and let’s make some photos.
