“The Aaron Siskind Foundation is offering a limited number of Individual Photographer’s Fellowship grants of up to $10,000 each, for artists working in photography and photo-based art. Recipients will be determined by a panel of distinguished guest judges on the basis of artistic excellence, accomplishment to date, and the promise of future achievement in the medium in its widest sense. The Foundation seeks to support artists/photographers who demonstrate a serious commitment to the field, who are professionally active or employed in the field.

Errol Morris is regarded as one of the world’s most important filmmakers and is best known for his documentaries The Thin Blue Line and the Oscar-award winning Fog of War.
But before he was a filmmaker, he was a detective and he’s always been interested in uncovering the mysteries of photographs. In his new book, Believing Is Seeing, Morris focuses on the things you can’t see in photographs and the importance of what lies outside the frame.
Morris tells weekends on All Things Considered host Guy Raz that his obsession with photos began when he was a small boy and his father died.
