When I was commissioned to interview Paolo Pellegrin back in 2008 it was a turning point in my career. I remember placing a call to Pellegrin who was in Jordan, at 5am my time. When he learned how early it was he told me he wasn’t worth getting up that early for. Wrong! Since then photojournalism and social documentary in particular has become a passionate pursuit that inspires both my journalistic work and my scholarly research. So when I saw this new work from my dear friend, I wanted to share it with Photojournalism Now readers.
