Features and Essays | Wednesday 16 May 2012

First two little announcements…Photojournalism Links is going to go through couple of changes. As the posts have been getting longer and slightly more infrequent, I’ve decided that it’s better to post some of the different categories separately. So from now on, for instance Features and Essays will be posted on their own. Also.. for the past over four years, the site has been a one-man operation by me, but I’ve now teamed up with my friend, journalist Olivier Laurent, to work on the site together. As I’m sure most of you will know, Olivier’s day-job is being the news editor over at British Journal of Photography. The man is also very passioned about photojournalism, so it’s great to have him moonlighting here at Photojournalism Links. Olivier will be posting some of the categories, and we are also going to be introducing some original content. More of which in due course. But thou shalt not fear….the site has always been about sharing links to great photojournalism content found online, and that will continue to be the core of Photojournalism Links. But I do believe everything has to evolve to stay fresh, and I think that along with changing the way links are posted, providing some original content is the natural next step. So stay tuned….

But now to the links….

Don’t mean to always start with NatGeo links, but cannot not share these two National Geographic Magazine June issue features right off the bat as they were only put online yesterday…Especially liking the Harvey one…Looking forward to getting the June issue in the post very soon…

David Alan Harvey: North Carolina’s Outer Banks (NGM)

Mark Leong: Hong Kong – In China’s Shadow (NGM)

Seen Martin Roemers’s World Press Photo prize winning series published many times, recently also in Time Int’l, but always worth having a look again…. here’s the series from
New York Times’ Sunday Review…

Martin Roemers: Metropolis (NYT)

Two Tomas Munita series from NYT, obviously much shorter assignments than the above NGM pieces and Roemers’s project, but both with such great openers….

Tomas Munita: Honduras Becomes the Focal Point in America’s Drug War (NYT)

Tomas Munita: A Dam Clouds The Future of Peru’s Indigenous People (NYT)

Different variations of boxing have always been a popular subject for photojournalists, to the extent, you can sometimes go, ‘not a again’, after seeing one (A picture editor once remarked to me in discussion about possible topics: ” Just don’t do a project about boxing.”), but every now and then a new boxing series comes up, that you cannot but enjoy..Like this one…

Devin Yalkin: Blood, Sweat, and Illicit Bets (NYT)

Meridith Kohut: Life Inside a Brothel in Cartagena, Colombia (NYT)

Several photographers have tackled topics around Central and South American immigration to the United States  in recent years (for instance Redondo and Orlinsky come to mind), but Joseph Rodriguez’s treatment is right up the with the best, certainly one of the most long-term and intimate, I’ve seen… Hope he manages to make this into a book like he plans…

Joseph Rodriguez: Life on Both Sides of the Border (NYT Lens)

Ed Ou: Camel-Jumpers in Yemen (NYT Lens)

Bryan Denton: Afghan Soldiers Increasingly Attack American Counterparts (NYT)

I remember reading about the below project from 2007, a year or probably more ago, and when Duckrabbit recommended it last week I thought I’d share it here…Some Twitter comments for the website since last night’s initial posting… One photographer mentioned “Exactly how a website should not ever look like.” and another “It feels like a bad acid trip.”….so do have a look…. It really is quite an “experimental interface for storytelling” as mentioned on the project’s website, and in my opinion you don’t necessarily even want to ‘Begin the Whale Hunt‘ (unless of course you want the acid trip!)  instead of just look at some of the stills on the ‘Highlights‘ page…although the number could be edited well down…
