Shadows

Soldiers Searching Bus Passengers, Northern Highway,

I've just has a visit to No Caption Needed where Bob Hariman has written a typically insightful post this one on shadows. The second of the images Bob discusses, in which he notes the seeming vulnerablity of a soldier viewed indirectly via his shadow, reminded me of this especially harrowing shot by Susan Meiselas.

Meiselas is quietly impressive in real life. She was speaking at a thing in Leeds that Lucaites also spoke at. Very moving stuff from both of them.
