Photojournalism that caught my eye during the month of March….

Features and Essays

One of my big faves, Tomas Munita, had a series from Cuba for Time to coincide the Papal visit to the country… opening double spread from the latest magazine seen here… Lightbox slideshow through the link…

Side note on the above…what made me fall in love with his work? It was his stunning 2006 Oskar Barnack winning series from Kabul. You can see most of the frames here. Man, Leica, and slide film working in perfect harmony…

Japan. 11 March saw the anniversary of the tsunami…

Nachtwey recently got four double trucks in Time for his Japan 1 Year Later portfolio.Pretty rare these days for something like that to happen I think…

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.

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..

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]

Back from Perpignan and another great visit to Visa Pour l’Image… obviously a lot of  fun was had and it did hurt a bit looking at my bank balance this morning …but it was also a productive week or so in terms of showing work and meeting editors….and educational having sat through several photographers’ talks…Chris Morris and Gary Knight to mention just a couple…But if there are two words that really sum up Visa Pour l’Image 2011 for me, they are exhaustion and inspiration…Those were at least the two things on top of my mind landing back in London Monday evening… the late nights, early rises, and eventful days certainly took their toll…but you also get very inspired attending the evening screenings at Campo Santo or La Republique, looking at the exhibitions at places like Couvent de Minimes, showing and getting feedback for your work at Palais de Congress, or just talking shop with fellow photographers and other industry types over dinners in some of the many very fine restaurants or over drink at the famous La Poste…or just plain fooling around

photo: Barbara Davidson

My festival highlights in terms of looking at work were exhibition of Barbara Davidson’s Pulitzer winning work Caught in the Crossfire about innocent victims of LA gang warfare…and seeing Canon AFJ 2011 recipient Ilvy Njiokiktjien present a very well put-together multimedia version of her award winning series at the Canon stage…hope the video will be online soon somewhere, I’d love to be able to share it…

Before we look at the latest features, take a moment for this…

Fundraing for Anton Hammerl’s (1969-2011)  3 children…

Friends of Anton | related on BJP

It was unfortunate there was no tribute to Anton during Visa evening screenings as there were for Lucas Dolega, Chris Hondros, and Tim Hetherington,  apparently because Hammerl’s photos had not been released for free due to a misunderstanding (this according to BJP’s Olivier Laurent) …

‘This Is What I Do. This Is All That I Know.” – Joao Silva

Part of NYT Lens’ Visa coverage…Joao Silva had a show of his Afghanistan work…

Joao Silva (NYT Lens: August 2011)

My favourite frame of Silva’s exhibition made me think of  other  photos I’ve seen of the B52 trails in the Afghan skies…photos which kind of seem to sum up and symbolise for me the long term foreign influence in the country…Of course the US and its allies have been in Afghanistan for 10 years with tens of thousands of boots on the ground…but when you think longer term…How will the last ten years of fight against the Taliban be seen in 20 years… 30 years… or 50 years? With US and its allies planning to reduce their presence in the country, will this most most recent war in Afghanistan be seen just as ‘a 10 years-or-so long in-and-out bomber round’? What has really been achieved?

Below Silva’s frame side-by-side Anderson’s, Knight’s, and Boulat’s…
