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…

UPDATE Monday 21 March 12.25pm GMT… news just posted on The New York Times website… Libya Releases 4 Times Journalists http://nyti.ms/flAz1P Hurray!

—-

As I’m sure all of you know by now, Lynsey Addario and Tyler Hicks along with videographer Stephen Farrell, and NYT”s Beirut bureau chief Anthony Shadid went missing in Libya earlier this week (the news on NPPA / NYT ). The team were later reported to have been detained my Gaddafi’s security forces. On Friday, New York Times reported that that the Libyan government had promised to release the Times journalists. It has passed 6pm GMT on Saturday,when I’m writing this, and unfortunately it seems that the Libyans haven’t kept their word. I hope Addario, Hicks, Farrell, and Shadid will be released as soon as possible. My fear is that the coalition launched attacks on Libya have complicated the matter quite a bit…

Features and Essays – Christopher Morris: Gaddafi’s Libya (TIME Lightbox: March 2011)

If you’d like to see Christopher’s own edit, you can see it on his website here.

Having browsed his site today, I noticed a link to this good piece on the Digital Journalist about him, from 2001…At the bottom of the page there’s nine videos with Morris, but unfortunately I didn’t manage to view them…maybe you have better luck…

More Libya…

Take another look at the photo on top of this post..I noticed that Yuri Kozyrev has a photo of the same scene  (see below) in his Libya gallery on TIME website …Taken almost the exact same moment…I think it’s Kozyrev’s legs behind Hicks… So his is like a photo within a photo (see them side by side here)…First thing that comes to mind is that both Conroy and Kozyrev have a lot of guts to continue taking photos in a situation that must have been rather threatening as Addario and Co are already running away from the scene…Another is that it seems like there were loads of photographers- well at least seven –  at this scene…As I mentioned regarding the Egypt turmoil, it’s not surprising photographers move in pacts in dangerous situations, but at the same it means that there’s a lot of overlap between their work, and the viewers  will not not get as comprehensive coverage of each conflict as they’d might first  imagine having looked at several photographers’ work.

Photo: Yuri Kozyrev

Another thing about Kozyrev’s photo and a lot of photos on TIME’s photo galleries for that matter…I’ve noticed they often seem to look really nice in terms of  what I call ‘punchiness’ ( good mix of contrast/saturation) and generally better processed than photographs on most other sites…To me that is evident even by comparing for instance the above Kozyrev frame with the top one by Conroy… I’ve often wondered if they have a person working on the files at the picture desk to give them a certain look… I wouldn’t be too surprised if it were so…Although this might of course be just a silly assumption of mine, and I really don’t know the inner workings of TIME’s picture desk, or any others’ for that matter, but do have a look for yourself, photos in their galleries do often seem to look really well – but not overly –  processed.
