Photographer and filmmaker Judah S. Harris discovered Israel at age 18, and has returned there more than 25 times over the last 25 years, photographing in many parts of the country, a major focus being Jerusalem.

In a newly presented photo essay, Judah shares what he's seen and some of the people he's met - on the streets, on the city buses, and in the privacy of their own homes. With nearly 60 carefully chosen moments from his collection of Israel photographs, Judah S. Harris offers a remarkable visual experience of Israel in color and B&W that is at times familiar, at times undiscovered, and quite often simply unnoticed.

Skyscan, the aerial/aviation specialist photolibrary has introduced a new online search facility for historic air photos at

Skyscan is working with leading aerial survey company Bluesky to launch a new concept in historic aerial photography. For the first time, users can search online in one location for historic UK aerial photographs from the survey records of *multiple* independent archives.

Whilst Google Earth and similar sites concentrate on a constantly updated aerial window on the world, will bring together the imagery held by many different historic aerial archives, both large and small, oblique and vertical (mapping) into one searchable web site.

With a cleverly designed and easy to use map based interface, simply entering the search area and paying a small search fee will check the records of all participating archives which cover that location and list them by date and scale and display the area covered on the map. Orders for prints or scans can also be placed online.

Skyscan's main stock photolibrary has also been given a makeover at

Look over here!

One of the most recent contributors to APL is Bridget Jones. APL really like her fresh simple approach of observational photographer and she definitely coheres to their 'real life images' strap line. At Adams (APL) they feel that images do not always have to be 'staged' to be saleable and look forward to seeing more diverse and eclectic takes on everyday life on the street.

APL has an ever-expanding range of images online and in-house at APL themes include: Art, Children, Architecture, Business, Concepts, Electrical, Design elements, Education, Entertainmenst t, Families, Food, Health, Industry, Landscapes & Nature, Lifestyles, Medical, Military, Religion, Sport, Transport, Travel & Wildlife.
