I’ve linked to this Sinclair work at least three times… first when it was on New York Times Magazine back in March 09… another time when it was in National Geographic Mag and third time when it won a POYi award… but having seen it on the VII website and having looked at it again and noticing there’s some new frames in there, I think it deserves yet another spotlight…

“Q: You do a lot of documentary work or photojournalistic work. …

Mary Ellen Mark : “Well there’s no such thing as photojournalism anymore. That’s over, except in newspapers. I respect newspapers but the reality is that magazine “photojournalism” is finished. They want illustrations, Photoshopped pictures of movie stars.””

About the archive.. I haven’t added anything to the archive since 31 July….So I’m running roughly 10 posts late…..it’s just that I’ve been enjoying the Finnish summer as well as working on a commission – would you believe it – and making the posts alone takes quite a bit of time.

Thanks to all who have sent me links. There’s still loads I haven’t put up, so please bear with me. I usually put up a majority of the links I receive, but recently I’ve been swamped with so much stuff, that I simply don’t have the time to use everything, unless I make myself a full time blogger…which I don’t want… I still try to be a photographer… despite how difficult  it seems at times..
