New edition of Photojournalism Links comes from Cafe de Prague in Hamra, Beirut. Finding good internet connection here has proven rather difficult as it did back in 2008 when I was in Lebanon the last time….de Prague definitely has the best wireless yet (thanks to @anastasiatl for the tip!)… Been working on a NGO commission everyday this week, but having a day off, so I came here for Sunday brunch, Skype calls to friends and family, and of course to do the weekly blog updates….

Here we go…

Irina Werning won BURN’s Emerging Photographer Grant…Surprising choice I think..not because Werning’s series is not nice – it is – but I think it’s the type of work that has a lot of editorial opportunities (It has already been published in Sunday Times Mag for instance) and as such don’t necessarily need support…also the series seems pretty much finished…and the grant is for continuing work…
