THE BROADER PICTURE

OBITUARY: Alfred Eisenstaedt

"The moral," Alfred Eisenstaedt wrote in 1969, "is that you have to be there." A photojournalist for over 70 years, Eisenstaedt had a capacity for "being there" that seemed infinite.

OBITUARY:George Rodger

Cameramen often try to establish a style, liking to think that any picture they take is recognisably theirs. But the only "style" George Rodger cared about in a photograph was its truth. As a result his own pictures have a special quality: direct, straightforward, but strongly composed, usually taken at a sufficient distance to show men and women active in their own setting, living and moving in the world they know.

The Independent is happy to announce the winner of our Lacroix competition to win a £10,000 couture outfit. The lucky woman is Daphne Priestley, 52, from Maidstone in Kent. She met M. Lacroix on Wednesday at his new boutique in Old Bond Street to discuss her ideas for the outfit, and had her first fitting with the couturier. Further fittings will take place at his salon in Paris. In the meantime, M. Lacroix will be sketching ideas and gathering fabric samples to send to Mrs Priestley. We will follow her progress over the next couple of months until the dream outfit is ready.

How a top photographer started: Tom Stoddart won the Visa D'or, the top award at this year's prestigious international festival of photo- journalism at Perpignan.

'I had never taken a picture before my first job, as a photographer on a local newspaper. I was handed a camera when I arrived at the Berwick Advertiser, the exposure was set and I was sent out to take bonny babies. After two days I was hooked. I knew I would not want to do anything else. Until then I had wanted to be a writer. A few years before, I remember being struck by some photographs of the fishing village I come from. There were these enormous prints of people I knew, and I thought, what beautiful things. But the camera is just a tool. I have seen some wonderfully imaginative pictures taken with a beer can with a hole in it. It reminded me of what it's all about.'

Letter: If it doesn't move don't cover it

NIK GOWING'S analysis of television's influence on government foreign policy ('Instant pictures, instant policies?', 3 July) was welcome for its intelligence and depth of research.

BOOKS / The uncandid camera: In the photographs of Richard Avedon, whose trademark has always been a stark white backcloth, no incidental is accidental

IF WHAT you're looking for in a photograph is a heart-stopping detail (a scar above the eyebrow faint as a silk thread, the white trace of a missing wedding band on a tan hand), then Richard Avedon is not your man. His pictures are the opposite of casual snaps brimming over with unconscious life. You'd never look at his pictures in search of a potential lover or to learn something about another country or as though you were thumbing through someone's family memories; his work isn't pornographic or informative or an equivalent to an album of souvenirs.
