This week on Photojournalism Now: Friday Round Up part two of the Head On Photo Festival preview. Tonight is the opening of the Festival in Sydney and the announcement of the Head On Photo Awards, which I’ll blog about next week. This week check out work from multi-award winning photojournalist Paula Bronstein from her 15 year survey of Afghanistan, as well as Belgian photojournalist Alain Schroeder’s Living for Death, Japan-based American photojournalist James Whitlow Delano’s body of work Normalizing Extrajudicial Murder in the Philippines, images from Patti Boyd’s George Harrison, Eric Clapton & Me and Garrett Hansen’s HAIL.
