I was reading the latest TIME magazine issue on the plane on Monday, and it had Shaul Schwartz’ photos from Haiti…only two (!) though, so it was nice to see there’s a slideshow on the website….The ones printed were this one below and slide 11/13.

Features and Essays – Shaul Schwarz: Haiti One Year Later (TIME: January 2011)

I know how some people and media feel a bit iffy about considering White House Photographer Pete Souza’s work to be used in journalism due to his official status, but he sure can take a mean picture…

Features and Essays – Pete Souza: Obama’s First Two Year’s in Office (TIME: January 2011) Chief Official White House photographer Pete Souza shares his favorite images from his coverage of the first half of the Obama administration. An intimate, behind-the-scenes look at the multilayered world of the President.

I saw New Statesman’s Photo Editor Rebecca McClelland post this earlier on Facebook…This must be the first ever link to New Statesman here on Photojournalism Links…I used to be an avid reader of the magazine back in the day when I was still studying politics. They didn’t have many photos back then, though. I think Rebecca is actually the magazine’s first ever PE.
