I've tapped the Globe's excellent Photo Dept. for our judge for the June 'Singular' contest: Susan Vermazen, who has been with the Globe as a picture editor and multimedia editor since 2000.

Before arriving at the Globe, Susan, a graduate of Boston University, had quite the interesting and varied resume:

Susan Vermazen

  • Rolling Stone Magazine, 1976-1980

  • New York Magazine, 1980-1994

  • Author of "War Torn: Survivors and Victims in the Late Twentieth Century, Recorded by Thirty-One Photographers" - Introduction by Thomas Friedman

  • Edited "Deeds of War" by James Nachtwey - Introduction by Robert Stone

  • Edited "Light Years" by Douglas Kirkland

  • Edited "Stay This Moment" by Sam Abell, National Geographic

  • Contributed to three of the "Day in the Life of ..." series of books, including "A Day in the Life of America", "A Day in the Life of China", and "A Day in the Life of Italy"

  • Team leader, Eddie Adams Workshop

  • 2nd Unit coordinator, "Days of Heaven" directed by Terrence Malick

  • Zombie in "Dawn of the Dead" directed by George Romero

Uh, yes, you read those last two entries correctly! To be able to say that you were a zombie, well, how can you beat that?

Susan has all 165 photo submissions; she'll choose a Final 50, write some comments, then narrow her choices to a Top 10, with the first three in order of finish.

NOTE: Paul Marotta, who did such a terrific job on our May "Reflections" contest, is returning to judge the July "Grill It!" contest. There are just 83 entries, so we'll skip the Final 50 or Final 25 and go right to the Top 10.

I'll also nail down a judge for the August "Rule of Thirds" contest this week, and we'll be getting caught up. My new Community producer started this week, so help has finally arrived.

Life and wildlife in Madagascar
For years before I started college, I knew I wanted to spend a semester studying abroad, but I wasn't sure where. By my junior year at Brandeis, I made up my mind to travel somewhere off the beaten path, and, of course, Madagascar is pretty far off the beaten path for someone like me....
An essay about Rebirth Workshops
Now that it's been several months since I returned from a week-long Rebirth Workshop in Mississippi, I'm happy to look back and provide an overview of what we did that made it such an intense experience for me as a photographer....
Photography apps for your phone
Thinking of ditching your separate camera and moving to just using your phone for all your photos? What apps should you go for? Instagram made headlines recently after being bought by Facebook for $1 billion. What does it include, and what else is out there?...
