Paolo Pellegrin’s Libya Exodus work previously published in The New York Times Magazine, now on Magnum Photos website…the good news is, there are loads more frames…24 instead of just 10…and based on quick check, the NYT Mag slideshow had some frames that aren’t on Magnum feature, so there’s actually more than 14 previously unseen shots in this…
His tilt is so recognisable, don’t you think?
