I started shooting this series my first trip to Iraq and always enjoy the diversion of shooting while stuffed into the back of a Humvee. It helps keep the mind off things that tend to happen while riding in the back of a Humvee. And usually, as a journalist, you end up sitting in the seat that is on top of the gas tank. Not the best place to be if something bad is to happen.

It was Philip’s consummate skill as a picture maker, carefully able to draw the viewer closer and closer to his subjects through his emotionally-charged compositions that lent such power to his work. Philip was always concerned with individuals – their personal and intimate suffering more than any particular class or ideological struggle. And the strength of his vision, that inspired so many of us, led Henri Cartier-Bresson to write of Philip: “not since Goya has anyone portrayed war like Philip Jones Griffiths.”

My story on Ben finally ran yesterday, on my last day of work. I felt like I went out with a good note. It was nice to see my vision for the story play out through fruition. All the photos ran in black and white over three pages starting on the A1.

This weekend in 1989, the Soviet Union withdrew its last troops from Afghanistan after having occupied the country since 1979 with much resistance from the mujahideen. Civil war, refugee crises, and Taliban rule followed, then the United States struck the Taliban in response to the Sept. 11 attacks. Magnum presents a short history of Afghanistan in pictures.

In this charming and captivating volume, National Geographic photographer Annie Griffiths Belt discloses the secrets of a peripatetic life, revealing in often hilarious detail how she managed to juggle two children, bulky cases of camera equipment, and everything needed for a nurturing family life as she traveled to far-flung destinations around the world.
Belt was one of the first female photographers hired at the National Geographic Society. When her children were born, she kept right on going—and this book is a loving compendium of the wisdom she gained. It chronicles three decades of international travel, a moveable family, and the art she created along the way.

A mid-career retrospective, this exhibition explores the issues of land and landlessness in two parts. The first section reveals Larry Towell’s family and their relationship to their land in Ontario. Most of the photographs in this section were taken within 100 yards of his front porch. The second section reviews Towell’s work over the past twenty years documenting the crisis of human landlessness throughout the world, from Central America to the Middle East. Writes Towell, “We must address these crises in order to achieve a more stable and peaceful world.”

I made these pictures a few months ago. I took vacation for 3 days and drove about an hour south of portland to shoot a mini – story about a homeless family moving into a home. its not a unique story – i have even shot it before. but, that doesn’t matter. we often choose to not do a story because its been done before. what does that mean? homelessness has been “done” to death. so we shouldn’t cover it?

the photos will never be published anywhere but here. so i suppose i shot them for the blog (which seems weird to me). but, i shot them for Geana and the kids too.

After an election widely condemned as fraudulent, Kenya – a country long known as a beacon of peace and prosperity in a region of war and lawlessness – witnessed a previously unseen level of tribal bloodshed in which over 1,000 people were killed. After several intense days of widespread clashes, revenge killings and mayhem, nearly 1 million Kenyans were forced to flee to their ancestral homelands or to camps for the displaced.

Retail icon Stanley Marcus was passionate about photography, but only now is that passion emerging publicly — with help from his family.

A retrospective of his images, “Reflection of a Man: The Photographs of Stanley Marcus,” is on display through March 30 at the Dallas Museum of Art, to which Marcus donated more than 300 works and was a trustee for over 60 years.

I spent two hours on a tour of the Sacramento County Jail today. They are beginning to open the facility up to public tours.

I’ve been in the booking areas before and I have had quick visits to different prisons. But here I had this intense feeling of solitude as I walked from floor to floor taking pictures.
