Updates updates!

1) I have updated my photo book with three new photos.. and I'm using flickr instead... much better especially with the slideshow feature..

2) Some notable Photography links added to the sidebar,

- Reinhard Krause
He was the REUTERS chief photographer in the Israel and the Palestinian Territories from the start of the Intifada in 2000 until Arafat's death in 2004, he is currently the Chief Photographer China for REUTERS based in Beijing. I saw a documentary on National Geographic about his job in the middle east as chief photographer and some of his and his team's pictures really captured the frustration and despair of the peoples living there.

- Michael Yamashita
Well traveled National Geographic photographer, He has been a regular contributor to the National Geographic since 1979 and has worked in such diverse locations as Somalia and Sudan, England and Ireland, New Guinea and New Jersey. Although he has traveled to six continents, Asia is his special area of concentration.

- Jeff Hutchens
Hired by National Geographic Channels International (NGCI) to be their sole staff photographer based outside Washington D.C. He now does freelance work to allow him to spend more time pursuing self-generated projects. Some of his corporate clients include, National Geographic Society, Singapore Airlines, Toyota Motor Company and Hewlett Packard.

- REQUIEM: By The Photographers Who Died In Vietnam and Indochina
I chanced upon the above book in the Kinokuniya Bookstore some years ago. It featured the works of photographers who died covering the War in Vietnam. Mostly black and white images, the images show the harsh reality of war, a war which ultimately claimed the lives of these professionals who's job was to venture into the heart of the action.

I have a deep respect for photojournalists who put their lives just so that the rest of the world can "see"

Lip: indeed... the book "Requiem" and Reinhard Krause's work in the middle east was very inspiring to me. Sadly, some of these professionals get hurt physically and many suffer emotionally due to the harsh nature of the job.
