Second month in a row that Paolo Pellegrin has work in the National Geographic magazine…and what a timing for the subject, since the series was probably shot months and months ago and  based on an editor’s note the issue was just going to press when the most recent Gaza conflict escalated.

Amazing work. The below photo might not represent the story as well as some of the other photos in the NatGeo edit, it’s not directly related to the tunnels for one,  but I think it looks incredible and symbolises well Gaza as the world’s largest outdoor prison, which it in many ways is.

Paolo Pellegrin: The Tunnels of Gaza (NGM) ‘They are a lifeline of the underground economy but also a death trap. For many Palestinians, they have come to symbolize ingenuity and the dream of mobility.’

“The challenge today is to make stories that transcend the millions of pictures that are shot but don’t actually say anything, to make sure that you’re giving a message through powerful photography and giving a voice to the people who are in your images.”  – Tom Stoddart

Working as a hostess, or kyabajo, has become a viable, and well paid, alternative for many educated young women.~~In Japan, a hostess is a young woman who entertains men at bars or clubs. Customers pay considerable sums of money for the pleasure of their company – for flirting but no sex.’

Hurricane Sandy.

Great to see Eugene Richards shoot  the Sandy aftermath for TIME…The edit could have been kept a little tighter, but there’s a sense of empathy in many of the photos and Richards’ captions, which really hit home and make you realise the huge magnitude of the devastation caused by Sandy not just on infrastructural, but on human level…

We haven’t had an Articles post on the site for a long time, so some of the links are as old as from the past summer, but hopefully still relevant to those who haven’t yet read them… This first one’s recent though…interesting article in this week’s Newsweek by Sarah A. Topol on young rookie freelance journalists working in war zones….The main photo seen on the spread below is by Ben Lowy by the way (who is seen with Nicole Tung in the photo on the right), although he obviously isn’t one of the people discussed in the article…

Somewhat related perhaps… Action packed trailer to 4 part HBO documentary series on conflict photographers: Witness. Surprisingly, I could find very little info on the series online… It doesn’t even appear to have a website… I recognised three photographers in the trailer… Michael Christopher Brown, Eros Hoagland, and Veronique de Viguerie…There are four episodes though:  Libya, South Sudan, Juarez, and Rio… so perhaps there’s a fourth photographer featured, but I don’t know..

The Passport to Prove It: A Stamped History of Marie Colvin’s Career (Vanity Fair) ‘Through the blurred ink of immigration stamps and festooned Middle Eastern visas, Marie Colvin’s passport reads like an illustrated time line for her coverage of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s election, the rise of the Taliban, the Arab Spring, Muammar Qaddafi’s capture and death, and the conflict in Syria. After becoming a foreign-affairs correspondent for London’s Sunday Times in 1985, Colvin entered nearly every war zone on the planet right up to her death, in Homs, Syria, in February.’
