I'm a little late getting to this - but came across it online today so for those of you who might have missed the spread about a photo I shot while working in VA. Here is a little brief from: www.nppa.org
The August 2008 issue of News Photographer magazine features a cover story by Frank Folwell about how Chinese photojournalists covered the deadly May earthquake. Also in this issue, Brian McDermott writes about how Barbara Davidson of the Los Angeles Times covered one Chinese village's loss of an entire generation of school children in the disaster. Other stories include a feature by Heather Graulich about how a photograph of a Navy wife's pink shoes by Rich-Joseph Facun fired up a controversy among readers of The Virginian-Pilot; Seth Gitner writes in his monthly Multimedia Moments article about B-Roll.net founder Kevin Johnson; writer Stephen Wolgast reviews Bill Eppridge's latest book, A Time It Was, about the tragic presidential campaign of Robert F. Kennedy in 1968; and Alicia Wagner Calzada takes a break from studying law in Innsbrook, Austria, to bring us up to speed on the latest developments in Orphan Works legislation. These stories and more in the August issue of News Photographer magazine.
