Boston Globe’s “Big Picture” does it again. Look at this collection of stunning images of Afghanistan:

Stunning. And also sad. Especially, I thought, the “no democracy – we just want Islam” picture – and those are supposed to be students.

And why are they great photographically? I think because they are all a combination of great composition, meaningful subject, and good technique (wide open f/1.4 lenses, available light, and wide angles with a close subject).

  1. That’s a compelling set of pictures. Well presented by the Globe. Perhaps photojournalism isn’t dead.

    The “no democracy – we just want Islam” picture must have been prepared for the Western press. Probably few of the students understood it – or even understand what democracy means. I don’t think the two are mutually exclusive.

    Thank you for pointing them out.
