The expression of grief is so intense, I cannot forget it. At the same, however, I feel challenged looking at the photo as a westerner.
This astonishing photo from the Ethiopian Airlines crash site hits me two ways. The expression of grief is so intense, I cannot forget it, all the way down to the tension in this woman’s cheek, jaw, and neck, and the dirt that misses her face and seems permanently suspended. At the same, however, I feel challenged looking at the photo as a westerner.
First and foremost on the board’s list of priorities was NPPA's advocacy effort. The board saw advocacy as the most effective way to help the greatest number of photographers. Therefore the board approved a large increase in NPPA’s advocacy budget. The committee, along with the NPPA’s general counsel, Mickey H. Osterreicher, will spend 2010 using increased resources to address First Amendment and intellectual property issues on both the federal and local levels.
