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)

Blast from the past… The below Okahara’s series is probably couple of years old, so was surprised to see it posted on NYT website… But worth seeing again…such strong work it is…and this is actually multimedia..

Tearsheet of the Day | 8 May 2012

Picked up a New Yorker issue dated 7 May, 2012 from a London newsagents’ last night…First time in a while..Would obviously like to read The New Yorker on a regular basis, but there just isn’t enough time nor money to buy  every magazine I want. Nevertheless, trying to keep at least some kind of tabs on the magazine by picking up a copy every now and then.

Anyway. There’s a point here. Really liked this portrait of boxer Claressa Shields by photographer Pari Dukovic.  Very simple, and very nice. Claressa Shields is a young American boxer who’s fighting for a place at this summer’s London Olympics. Long piece about her in the magazine written by Ariel Levy.

Caption: Claressa Shields at Berston’s gym, in Flint, Michigan. 

Pari Dukovic is a photographer whose work I don’t remember seeing before.  Had to have a quick look at his website. He was part of PDN30 in 2011, so I obviously hadn’t done my home work well enough. There’s some documentary work in there, such as the series on Turkish oil wrestling, which you might want to check out (Paolo Pellegrin shot the same subject recently and should you want to compare…you can see Pellegrin’s here.).  I enjoyed the most going through Dukovic’s tear sheets (New Yorker appears to be a regular client). Digging the gritty and grainy quality in some of his work, visible for example in portraits of Elizabeth Warren and Bernadette Peters (you can see those in the tear sheets) . Interestingly, the Shields portrait highlighted here  doesn’t necessarily seem like his usual style at all.

NB. Please excuse the poor reproduction of the tear sheet. You can see in its proper glory on Dukovic’s website. I shot the tear sheet with my iPhone on a moving train… Where I’m writing this post…
