I want to start drawing attention to some of the great work in documentary photography, socially conscience photography and photojournalism that continues despite the many hurdles faced by practitioners of these pursuits.
I, like many, spend way too much time on Facebook. It is insidious. All those friends, many who you don’t even know. So many discussions, opinions, jokes and etc. It is like being back in school, but skipping all classes and just hanging out.
One good thing about Facebook besides reconnecting me with long lost classmates and friends it has drawn attention to work that people post there. Larry Price, formerly a photographer at Dayton Daily News, has posted some great photos from his recent travels in Africa.
I’m not sure who he is doing this work for - if it is just personal, or part of a bigger work, but it is very compelling. I would like to see more.
Here is a link to some of the Facebook photos by Larry Price: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=4699843647225&set=pcb.4699856207539&type=1&theater
