Second month in a row that Paolo Pellegrin has work in the National Geographic magazine…and what a timing for the subject, since the series was probably shot months and months ago and  based on an editor’s note the issue was just going to press when the most recent Gaza conflict escalated.

Amazing work. The below photo might not represent the story as well as some of the other photos in the NatGeo edit, it’s not directly related to the tunnels for one,  but I think it looks incredible and symbolises well Gaza as the world’s largest outdoor prison, which it in many ways is.

Paolo Pellegrin: The Tunnels of Gaza (NGM) ‘They are a lifeline of the underground economy but also a death trap. For many Palestinians, they have come to symbolize ingenuity and the dream of mobility.’

Terrific series in December’s NatGeo magazine by Carolyn Drake.

“The challenge today is to make stories that transcend the millions of pictures that are shot but don’t actually say anything, to make sure that you’re giving a message through powerful photography and giving a voice to the people who are in your images.”  – Tom Stoddart

Working as a hostess, or kyabajo, has become a viable, and well paid, alternative for many educated young women.~~In Japan, a hostess is a young woman who entertains men at bars or clubs.

Great to see Eugene Richards shoot  the Sandy aftermath for TIME…The edit could have been kept a little tighter, but there’s a sense of empathy in many of the photos and Richards’ captions, which really hit home and make you realise the huge magnitude of the devastation caused by Sandy not just on infrastructural, but on human level…

Love this Cuba feature by Paolo Pellegrin for the National Geographic Magazine. Published in the November issue.

Paolo Pellegrin: Cuba’s New Now (NGM) After half a century under Castro, Cubans feel a wary sense of possibility. But this time, don’t expect a revolution.

Also in the latest National Geographic Magazine issue…Eugene Richards from Arkansas Delta… his feature mixes current work with photos from the early 70s.

Photo © Eugene Richards

Eugene Richards: Return to the Arkansas Delta (NGM) The delta west of the Mississippi River was once a place where sharecroppers lived in segregation and poverty yet forged a vibrant community. Industrial farming has erased their culture, leaving behind endless sky and few people. Eugene Richards documented their world four decades ago. Now he returns to where his pictures began.

Features and Essays | Wednesday 16 May 2012

First two little announcements…Photojournalism Links is going to go through couple of changes. As the posts have been getting longer and slightly more infrequent, I’ve decided that it’s better to post some of the different categories separately. So from now on, for instance Features and Essays will be posted on their own. Also.. for the past over four years, the site has been a one-man operation by me, but I’ve now teamed up with my friend, journalist Olivier Laurent, to work on the site together. As I’m sure most of you will know, Olivier’s day-job is being the news editor over at British Journal of Photography. The man is also very passioned about photojournalism, so it’s great to have him moonlighting here at Photojournalism Links. Olivier will be posting some of the categories, and we are also going to be introducing some original content. More of which in due course. But thou shalt not fear….the site has always been about sharing links to great photojournalism content found online, and that will continue to be the core of Photojournalism Links. But I do believe everything has to evolve to stay fresh, and I think that along with changing the way links are posted, providing some original content is the natural next step. So stay tuned….

But now to the links….

Don’t mean to always start with NatGeo links, but cannot not share these two National Geographic Magazine June issue features right off the bat as they were only put online yesterday…Especially liking the Harvey one…Looking forward to getting the June issue in the post very soon…

David Alan Harvey: North Carolina’s Outer Banks (NGM)

Mark Leong: Hong Kong – In China’s Shadow (NGM)

Seen Martin Roemers’s World Press Photo prize winning series published many times, recently also in Time Int’l, but always worth having a look again…. here’s the series from
New York Times’ Sunday Review…

Martin Roemers: Metropolis (NYT)

Two Tomas Munita series from NYT, obviously much shorter assignments than the above NGM pieces and Roemers’s project, but both with such great openers….

Tomas Munita: Honduras Becomes the Focal Point in America’s Drug War (NYT)

Tomas Munita: A Dam Clouds The Future of Peru’s Indigenous People (NYT)

Different variations of boxing have always been a popular subject for photojournalists, to the extent, you can sometimes go, ‘not a again’, after seeing one (A picture editor once remarked to me in discussion about possible topics: ” Just don’t do a project about boxing.”), but every now and then a new boxing series comes up, that you cannot but enjoy..Like this one…

Devin Yalkin: Blood, Sweat, and Illicit Bets (NYT)

Meridith Kohut: Life Inside a Brothel in Cartagena, Colombia (NYT)

Several photographers have tackled topics around Central and South American immigration to the United States  in recent years (for instance Redondo and Orlinsky come to mind), but Joseph Rodriguez’s treatment is right up the with the best, certainly one of the most long-term and intimate, I’ve seen… Hope he manages to make this into a book like he plans…

Joseph Rodriguez: Life on Both Sides of the Border (NYT Lens)

Ed Ou: Camel-Jumpers in Yemen (NYT Lens)

Bryan Denton: Afghan Soldiers Increasingly Attack American Counterparts (NYT)
