I make plugs here about the wide-ranging and far-flung photographic content at The New York Times, but TIME Lightbox also does a nice job. I got in the habit of ignoring them because early on I couldn't access them: some glitch in the Tubes of the Interwebs somewhere made it so the front page would open and then get stuck. So if I saw a link to TIME Lightbox I would ignore it.
No need now. Whatever was broke is fixed. And it's a good source for excellent, thought-provoking, eye-gratifying, mojo-revivifying slideshows. Consider these two: Richard Sandler, written about by Alexandra Genova, and Charalampos "Harry" Kydonakis, written about by Gus Powell. Harry Kydonakis is from the Greek island of Crete (home of the Minotaur and birthplace of Zeus) at the southern edge of the Aegean Sea. He's known as "Dirty Harrry" [sic] online, and a search will yield many breadcrumb-trails to follow if you're so inclined. Richard Sandler, who is currently a videographer, has been getting increasing amounts of attention stemming from a book of his classic street photography done in the 1980s and early '90s, mostly in New York City. There is more of his work at his website.
Stout stuff, both. Drink it in.

Kenneth Tanaka: "Very compelling work samples by both Kydonakis and Sandler. Most interesting to me is the contrast in their styles of choices and presentation. Sandler's work reminds me a bit of Bruce Davidson's style, perhaps because of those trashed subway scenes. Kydonakis's work is much looser, not as generally figuratively impactful as Sandler's but much more conceptual. At least that's my take. Thanks Mike."
