Photojournalism

Olya got me hooked on The Big Picture recently when she sent me a link to their Recent Scenes from North Korea. Absolutely mesmerizing. I think I’ve looked at those pictures a dozen times and I’m still awestruck. I thought it only proper to post a link here to one of their other recent series: Observing Ramadan.

Want to know how to spread goodwill in the world? The Boston Globe nails it. Start reading the comments after the pictures if you don’t believe how positive this feature is. Yesterday, they had around 450 comments. Tonight, I see they are 300 beyond that, and I cannot remember seeing a single negative one in the lot. Brilliant. Is anyone at the State Department picking up on this?

  1. I love that they have a picture of the Yalu River – reminds me of a certain MASH episode (One of my favorites actually). Cool story though, thanks for the heads up!

  2. 1 year later and the photo collage on Ramadan is still getting comments. Now well over 2100. I reiterate. Does anyone else see what an amazingly positive diplomatic tool this is?
