It’s all Egypt again, to start-off with…

Some of the best photos I’ve seen from Tahrir Square…

Features and Essays – Yuri Kozyrev: The Battle for Tahrir Square (TIME: February 2011)

Features and Essays – NYT (various photographers): From the Protests in Egypt (NYT: February 2011)

Features and Essays – Jacopo Quaranta: A Night in Tahrir Square (TIME February 2011)

TIME has also updated Dominic Nahr’s gallery I posted on Tuesday, with some new images..

Features and Essays – Dominic Nahr: The Clashes in Cairo (TIME: February 2011)

Features and Essays – Guy Martin: Clashes in Cairo (WSJ: February 2011)

It’s not surprising photographers are moving in small packs in conditions as in Cairo during this week and end up with similar photographs. It does however give an interesting opportunity to compare, how two photographers see and capture identical scenes….As pointed out by @melissalyttle, Dominic Nahr and Guy Martin for instance seem to have moved together as both of the two slideshows above include several photographs that have been taken as if the two men have been standing, in Lyttle’s words, “shoulder to shoulder”….See for yourself in the below examples…I find especially the first example striking… The two photographs are pretty much identical…only slight differences in contrast and saturation…About the photo of the man wiping blood off his head, I’m almost 100% certain we are looking at the same man, despite the fact his jacket does look different colour…this might be due to post processing… I’m pretty sure the wall is the same, and its colour is slightly different as well in the two photograps…
