Features and Essays 

To start off, great gallery on Lightbox,  by no other than Yuri Kozyrev…Don’t mean to always highlight Lightbox and  Kozyrev first, but the Time photo editors’ blog has been one of the best things happen this year in/for photojournalism… Great coverage…And Kozyrev has been the photographer whose work has popped up constantly in 2011 (during each of the last four years that I’ve been doing Photojournalism there seems to have been one prolific photographer who defined the  year for me.. in 2010 it was Lynsey Addario, the year before Marcus Bleasdale, and in 2008 it was Lauren Greenfield), so it’s probably suitable that this post (which might or might not be the last this year. We shall see) kicks off with yet another Kozyrev/Lightbox combo…

Time magazine decided on The Person of the Year… This year it’s The Protestor…

Yuri Kozyrev has photographed lot those protestors during the uprisings and revolutions that have occurred in the Middle East this year… He reflects back at the events and photographs…

Cairo, Egypt — February 1, 2011. Thousands of Egyptians flooded Cairo after Mubarak refused to step down.

Just saw Christopher Morris’ photos from Pope John Paul’s beatification in Rome last month…Some frames made me think of Paolo Pellegrin’s photos of people morning the pope’s death six years ago…Almost like a bookend to Pellegrin’s series…whether it’s just because both are of Pope John Paul and in black and white, I don’t know…Have a look side by side.

Morris’ has a video of this as well, but apparently it cannot be shown before music license has been sorted out…Looking forward to seeing it as I’m a big fan of his Dear Leader and the two Obama short films…
