NYT’s Libya gallery updated with photos from yesterday

Earlier today, I was reading March 14 issue of TIME with a lot of Yuri Kozyrev’s photos from Libya and Yemen…

See Kozyrev’s updated Libya gallery on Time’s website here.

His Yemen work..It was interesting to compare the photos online and in print…Something I noticed regarding these Yemen ones, was that the frames in print didn’t look half as punchy as online…Love the toning…

Resources LinkedIn …. I’ve had a LinkedIn profile for about a year, but I never got around to finishing my profile and adding contacts until recently…and I’ve noticed that not only is the site good for virtual networking with colleagues I know, but also with ones I don’t. I’ve managed for instance to find names of loads of  photo editors at different newspapers and magazines through my Linked In contacts, which is pretty useful (There is of course Agency Access but you have to pay for that)…and I guess that’s what the whole linking-in is about…

Speaking of LinkedIn… I noticed that VII Photo’s LinkedIn profile starts, maybe slightly peculiarly, with: ” The third most-important entity in photography”…as one might expect something more on the lines of, say ‘one of the most important entities in photography’…anyway…if VII are the third most important entity (finding the word entity a bit odd too), then I couldn’t help but thinking what are the two most important? Magnum Photos must one of the two for sure. The other? International Center of Photography was suggested on Twitter last night as were Getty…  Not trying to pick on VII here, of course…just food for funny thought.

About Twitter. I noticed I passed the 2,000 tweets mark yesterday. I got my profile on 19 January 2009, which based on my rough calculations means something like 2,6 tweets a day. The first ever tweet of mine? “Loves Paolo Pellegrin’s DC piece at Magnum in Motion http://tinyurl.com/8n5q64” – @photojournalism
