Features and Essays

Last week saw the tenth anniversary of the war in Afghanistan..

Most of you have probably already seen this…nevertheless….LightBox put up a gallery of 43 images by war photographers in Afghanistan and the images that moved them most….Lot of familiar frames by Anderson, Morris, Sinclair, Bronstein, Haviv, Murphy, van Agtmael, Nachtwey, etc…. you name it…Hadn’t seen this one by Emilio Morenatti before…

Photo: Emilio Morenatti/AP. Afghanistan. October 4, 2004.

TIME Lightbox: Afghanistan: The Photographs That Moved Them Most (LightBox) Includes Michael Kamber  commenting on a  Tim Hetherington photo and Pancho Bernasconi commenting on a Chris Hondros photo

Just noticed Patrick Witty tweet that this week’s TIME International cover story is on Afghanistan..Cover photo by Adam Ferguson…My eyes were drawn to the headline that accompanies the image… “Why The US Will Never Save Afghanistan”…you compare that to the famous 2010 cover with Jodi Bieber’s Aisha portrait with the headline “What Happens if We Leave Afghanistan”,and I would argue there’s been a change in Afghanistan thinking at TIME’s editorial desk…see the covers side-by-side here.

Panos have a slideshow of Afghanistan images from the past ten years… Was looking at the below Martin Adler one from Kabul in 2002, and noticed the building looked familiar… realised it’s the same one as in a famous Simon Norfolk one from 2001… See the two side-by-side here

I had a quick look at the latest New Yorker issue at my local newsagents’ the other day…It had, what must have been a 10,000 word, article by Philip Gourevitch on Rwandan cycling team…Photos by Dominic Nahr… Only two frames tho, unless I counted wrong…double spread of the below image to open the piece and then another….Would have expected more photos to be used for such a long piece, but then again, New Yorker is pretty word heavy magazine…Luckily we can see 10 frames on their brilliant Photo booth….

I was checking on the VII website yesterday whether there were any features I hadn’t seen… Nothing new on the front page, but plenty on the VII Network page… The VII front page does often feature series by the Network photographers, but not all of them… not quite sure what is the criteria,as for instance Lynsey Addario’s new work is pretty much always on the VII front page…including the  recent Five-Star Delhi…The below Bhutan work wasn’t tho.. Anyway, have to remember to keep checking the Network page more often…Although, VII is closing the Network soon…Guess it’ll all be clearer then…

Time for a little rant…

Photo: Daniel Berehulak / Getty Images

There have been a lot of complaints that the international community’s response to the devastating Pakistan floods has been inadequate. It got me thinking of the response and reaction of the Western photojournalism community, more specifically from publishers and photographers. Of course the initial death toll caused by the Pakistan floods is nothing compared to the Haiti earthquake, but its repercussions are in a sense bigger, with 6 million people in desperate need of emergency aid according to the UN. Now I remember, as I’m sure everyone does, how photographers  - both media and self- assigned – rushed to Haiti to cover the earthquake aftermath, but I haven’t seen anything even remotely close to that kind of reaction and response as a result of the Pakistan floods. I wonder why that might be?  After the Haiti earthquake struck, TIME magazine immediately sent two photographers there, Shaul Schwarz and Timothy Fadek, whose work was shown prominently  in a daily updated photo gallery on the magazine’s website, and a week into the aftermath they also dispatched James Nachtwey. I just had a look at TIME’s photo essays page on their website, and there is only one single Pakistan floods gallery, published on August 2, which is made up of photographs taken by EPA, AP, Reuters, and Getty Images photographers. And New York Times, who sent several of their own staffers, including Damon Winter,  and regular freelancers to Haiti, has opted not to send anyone of their own to Pakistan, instead publishing several photo galleries (here, here, and here) made up entirely of wire photographs. So there are photographers on the ground and of course NYT has to be congratulated for publishing some of the work, but I would argue that if a newspaper or a magazine is committed to seriously covering an issue, like both TIME and NYT did in Haiti, they will assign their own photographers. And I would argue that one can potentially receive a more comprehensive view of a catastrophic situation such as the Pakistan floods, at least photographically, by looking at larger bodies of work each done by single observers. I tend to overlook those photo galleries made up of several photographers’ work, those ‘wire galleries’ as I call them, no matter how good the work in them might be – as in the case of Getty’s Daniel Berehulak whose always terrific photos can be seen as part of the only TIME Pakistan floods gallery – and preferring to see work comprising a singular vision such as Alixandra Fazzina’s flood photos on NOOR website. I just hope there were more photographers out there in Pakistan doing this kind of in-depth work. You’d expect so, as you’d expect the aid dollars piling up, considering the magnitude of the natural catastrophe…
