You might be tempted to call it a photographic road trip, but it's more than that. On their cross-American adventure, James Estrin writes, Luceo has become something of a "photographic rapid response team." Off they go.

In August, the New York Times took a look back at the war in Iraq on the frontlines and at home in the US…I don’t think I ever shared the slideshow…Various photographers’ work included…Below frame from Todd Heisler’s iconic Final Salute…(Remember seeing it first time as it was exhibited in Berlin as part of the touring World Press Photo 2006 exhibition, and being really amazed by it. Actually another Iraq series from the same exhibition, by Peter van Agtmael,  is etched in my memory as well. I saw the WPP 2006 show literally two weeks before I began studying photojournalism, so it had special impact.)

Just got back home to Wales after nearly 24h travel after having left Perpignan. Exhausted but thrilled. Very happy about my first Perpignan visit. A lot of fun was definitely had, but I feel I also had a very productive week in terms of having showed work to so many picture editors. The week was also a great learning experience having had the chance to talk face-to-face  to a lot of other photographers many with a long track record in the business. If you have never been to Perpignan yourself, I recommend to make room in you calendar for Visa Pour L’Image 2011.

One of the greatest things about my first Perpignan visit, was the flat where I was staying. We had a great crew: Sebastian Liste, Anastasia Taylor-Lind, Poulomi Basu, Dalia Khamissy, Olivier Laurent, and briefly also picture editors Rebecca McClelland and Rachel Palmer. I was very happy to spend my time with such talented bunch of people…

Sebastian Liste is the recent Ian Parry Scholarship winner and his winning work Urban Quilumbo is up on the FotoVisura blog…

Was reading the August issue of British Journal of Photography yesterday during all the travel. The magazine really is a lot more enjoyable read after having turned from a weekly to a monthly. The August issue had Lee Friedlander’s photo from his America by Car book on the cover. A lot of different blogs and sites have written about this Friedlander’s latest work. I like this New Yorker Photo Booth piece the best….

As you probably know already, Corinne  Day, passed away last week. Day was never a photojournalist, but I’m sure her Diary book influenced a lot of  documentary photographers, such as Jessica Dimmock and her The Ninth Floor project, I’d imagine, among others.

Just realised, I’m currently already 16 posts behind in putting recent links to the archive. Need to tackle the issue soon. It’s fine putting all the links here in the daily posts, but on a long term it’s more important that the links are archived in the appropriate categories. I feel the real strength of Photojournalism Links is in fact the archive.

Still have loads of emails to respond to as well. Will get on them today.

I’m leaving Wales behind on Thursday and relocating to Brighton with Veronica. We’ve been planning this for a long time. Feeling very excited about it. I know London and Brighton are full of photographers and competition is fierce, but I’m sure there will nevertheless be a lot more opportunities….Interesting times ahead…
