Features and Essays 

Egypt again.

Yuri Kozyrev’s Egypt work on Lightbox.

Yuri Kozyrev: Egypt’s “Second” Revolution” (Lightbox)

Related to Kozyrev…had the chance to read a very interesting report written by BJP’s Olivier Laurent on the Italian post-processing lab 10b Photography who work closely also with Kozyrev… The report includes several before/after processing Kozyrev pics (big ups for 10b and the photographer for having agreed to it and being so open) and comes out in British Journal of Photography’s December issue… and should be online late this month… Check it out… [by the way, it seems Moises Saman and Kozyrev photographed at same Cairo election polling station during the recent elections. If you want to compare not just how they framed the scene, but also how differently the files are processed, go to my Twitpics here.]

Daniel Etter: Egyptian Election Symbols (Newsweek)

Noticed Ed Ou has a new website. His on-going Egypt series…

Ed Ou:  Egyptian Youth (in progress) (photographer’s website)

Saw two new features by James Nachtwey this week… One from Japan for Vanity Fair and another from Burma for Time… The VF gallery is online….

James Nachtwey: The Forgotten Heroes of Fukushima (Vanity Fair)

The Burma work was in Time magazine, but unfortunately the Lightbox slideshow I was hoping for didn’t materialise… You can see the frames below…[obviously not the actual layout, just iPhone pics I stitched together]

Afghanistan.

Charles Ommanney has started a project in Afghanistan concentrating on the effects of war on the country’s children…Looking forward to seeing how it will evolve..

Alixandra Fazzina: The Flowers of Afghanistan (Project website)

Sanjit Das: India’s Lowest Castes (WSJ)

Looking at VII photographers’ best of the year selections last week I ended up browsing the agency’s archive  …You can see long/full edits of all the features unlike at main VII Photo site which is pretty cool if you want to take a closer look at any series. Below links to a large edit (130 photos) of Lynsey Addario’s recent Gaza work in the VII archive….Originally shot for the New York Times if I’m not mistaken.

Lynsey Addario: Gaza (VII Archive)

Also couldn’t help but noticing, there was no gallery by Antonin Kratocvil in the VII Best Ofs..only an intriguing thumbnail of what looked like naked ice skaters and a link taking me to his website…Later it was pointed out to me on Twitter that the photo was from a series Kratochvil shot for the ESPN magazine’s Body issue….if you too want to see the naked ice skaters (why not, right?) and other nude athletes from the piece, head to Kratochvil’s website by clicking the link below…[Added note 11 December 2011: this has received by far the most clicks in the post thus far]

I’ve had the pleasure to announce some new supporters for my blog during the last two weeks, and very happy to announce yet another one…Photo Raw magazine…check out the right-hand side bar…Photo Raw is a  quarterly magazine dedicated to the best photojournalism and documentary photography out there…published in Finland but printed in English…I think PJ Links and Photo Raw make a great match.  Their new issue will be out first week of June with features by Paolo Pellegrin, Anastasia Taylor-Lind, Natan Dvir et al….

This week’s round-up…

Features and Essays

I forgot to post links last week to these two great essays from National Geographic Magazine’s June issue…

Stephanie Sinclair has continued her project on child brides…

Stephanie Sinclair: Too Young To Wed (NGM: June 2011) The secret world of child brides

Greg Girard: Can China Go Green ? (NGM: June 2011) No other country is investing so heavily in clean energy. But no other country burns as much coal to fuel its economy.

Stephanie Sinclair also has some work in the New York Times Magazine this week… Living on the Europe side of the pond,  I’ve never actually held NYT Mag in my hand, but I saw a place in Soho the other day, where they stock Sunday’s NYT.. Think I’m gonna go and pick up a copy…Always so great photography in there…

Stephanie Sinclair: A Mind of Their Own (NYT Mag: May 2011) Conjoined twins | article

There’s a link to a great Bryan Denton interview later in the post… but since I realised I never posted the link to his last story from Libya… here it is now…

Bob Dylan’s 70th birthday was on Tueday. Photographer Elliott Landy spoke to TIME Lightbox about the photos he made of his good friend…

Petrut Calinescu: The Black Sea (Panos Pictures: May 2011)

NYT Lens blog featured Espen Rasmussen’s book In Transit. One of the pictures from the book is the below frame of a Rohingya fisherman in Bangladesh…I remember reading an interview with Rasmussen in BJP last year, when he still had the Rohingya pictures converted in black and white and mentioned he might convert them back to colour…

From BJP… “He shot thousands of digital images, editing them down to a story of just 32 shots, then converting them to black-and-white and adding text and captions.”[ …} Rasmussen often writes his own stories and, although he also enjoys working with journalists, says it’s his favourite approach. After all, he points out, the most important thing is the story, and he’s in a good position to tell it both in images and words. “I let people talk and show their daily struggle through interviews and pictures,” he says. “I don’t search for the obvious drama, I try to describe daily life.” In fact, he’s considering turning the images back into colour, concerned that the sheer beauty of the monochrome versions detracts from the Rohingya’s plight.”.

Looks like he has done…See comparison here.

Interviews

Must read Bryan Denton interview on Lens blog…

“To me, having training and gear is a responsibility we have to our families and friends who worry about us, our colleagues who work beside us and can benefit from our know-how if they’re wounded, and to the readers who are informed by the images we take and will cease to be if we get taken out of the game. There’s never any guarantee that that stuff will save you, but we owe it to those who love us, support our work and each other to take every precaution we can.” – Bryan Denton

Editor’s note: This post has been updated most recently on 1 May 2011. All the link additions can be found at the bottom of the post.

The world lost Tim Hetherington and Chris Hondros in Libya yesterday, two not only great photojournalists, but based on tributes I have read,  two wonderful human beings. Both men were in their very early forties. Two other photographers, Guy Martin and Michael Christopher Brown were also injured by the blast that killed Hetherington and Hondros. Wednesday 20 April 2011 will remain as one of the darkest days in the history of photojournalism, along with 10 February 1971, the day when Larry Burrows, Henry Huet, Kent Potter, and Keisaburo Shimamoto were downed in Laos. I had never met either Tim Hetherington or Chris Hondros, but I had huge amount of respect and admiration for their work, not only the courage and willingness to put themselves in harm’s way  for their stories but especially for the compelling photographs they produced under the difficult and dangerous circumstances forever present in conflict situations. As soon as the terrible news were announced  during yesterday afternoon and evening,  countless tributes and memorials began flooding online on both sides of the Atlantic from both men’s friends and colleagues. I would like to show my own appreciation towards Tim Hetherington and Chris Hondros by compiling here some of those mentioned tributes, as well links to some interviews and work of both the photojournalists. I would like to dedicate this post  to the memory of the two men and to their friends and family. My thoughts are with them at this very sad time. I can only imagine the pain felt by those who knew Tim and Chris personally.  I hope friends and family can find some solace in the fact that neither of them lived their lives in vain. Not only did both Hetherington and Hondros spend most of  their careers highlighting important issues  that would have otherwise been ignored or overlooked by the general public in countries such the UK and US, but they also practiced their craft at the very top tier of our industry to a very high standard and they were setting a mark towards which the rest of us should always strive for. Tim and Chris will be greatly missed.

Tim Hetherington 1970-2011

“My pictures were being used to illustrate others’ ideas, so I started making stories to express my own ideas about the world”  - Tim Hetherington

“My work is about trying to get us to understand that we are connected and trying to build bridges and understanding between people.”  - Tim Hetherington on Twitter August 27, 2010

Please take a moment to write a message to Tim Hetherington’s family and share it with his friends http://timhetherington.org/condolences/

Articles – ABC News: A Filmmaker Tim Hetherington’s Last Message (ABC News: April 2011)

““The news that Chris Hondros was killed in Misurata is a gut punch to so many people, for so many reasons, both because he was so young, so talented, and perhaps most of all because he was so fearless. It is impossible to imagine him doing anything but the work he loved doing. The world is a more enlightened and more aware place today because Chris Hondros felt such a profound responsibility to brave war zones in order to share the truth in poignant images with the rest of the world.” – John Kerry

“Everything about him — his passion, his sense of purpose, and his spirit — gave meaning to the word `photojournalist.” – John Kerry

Hetherington, Tim (BBC: October 2010)

Hetherington, Tim (Guernica: September 2010)

Hetherington, Tim talks about his documentary Restrepo (NPR: June 2010)

“If you are interested in mass communication, then you have to stop thinking of yourself as a photographer. We live in a post-photographic world. If you are interested in photography, then you are interested in something — in terms of mass communication — that is past. I am interested in reaching as many people as possible.” – Tim Hetherington

Hetherington, Tim (NYT Lens: June 2010)

Hetherington Tim (video) (VF: December 2007) Pushing back the Taliban and al-Qaeda in Afghanistan’s strategically crucial Korengal Valley is one of the U.S. Army’s deadliest challenges. For “Into the Valley of Death” (January 2008), Sebastian Junger dug in with the men of Second Platoon, whose humor, courage, and camaraderie come under daily fire. In this video, which features battlefront footage shot by Junger and photographer Tim Hetherington for ABC News, Junger and Hetherington talk about their experiences in Afghanistan while working on the story.

Hetherington, Tim on his Liberia project (BBC: 2009)

Hetherington, Tim at NYPH (video c. 45 minutes) (What’s the Jackanory: May 2009)

Their work…

The photojournalism community is in shock today, but we can take some comfort in knowing that both men died doing what they most loved. We can celebrate and applaud their lives’ work and achievements.
