So we finally got the good news on Monday that Addario, Hicks, Farrell, and Shadid had been released. You can read the account of their detention on the New York Times website…

Over 1,600 clicks on the ‘photo within a photo’ from Libya seen below, that I put on Twitpic the other day… So here it is again.. On the left you can see Paul Conroy’s photo, and if you look closely, you can see a pair of legs behind Tyler Hicks (first photographer from the right). I’m fairly certain, those legs belong to Yuri Kozyrev, who is taking the photo on the right pretty much at the same exact moment… Fairly random observation, I know, but still kinda interesting I thought…

They also have panoramics from Japan on the Photoblog here, as well as some ‘Japan before and after the earthquake, tsunami’ sliders…
Some panoramic composites also on Lightbox, slightly differently executed though, and surprisingly by nobody other than James Nachtwey…

I went to University College of Falmouth second year BA Press and Editorial Photography students’ exhibition, Progression, at Calument London…It’s a show of 34 photographs, one by each of the students on the course.
The exhibition is up for a month. Go and have a look if you happen to wonder around the Euston area in London, or have business in the aforementioned establishment. Big thanks to Dan Cainey for having invited me to the opening. Several promising works on display, so it was a pleasure.
