Best Shots (197) ~ Tom Craig
I normally do not comment on these entries lifted from The Guardian. But I do periodically take time to point out that they do a real service by continuing this series. It not only includes are remarkable range of photographers, but prompts them to chat a bit about a single image. Often - though not always - they have something pretty interesting to say. Craig, for instance, addresses the complaint that photojournalists often parachute into locations, not know much about the history or context of the story they've been dispatched to cover. Here is his view: "I don't do any in-depth research as I want to be taken by observations, not preconceptions."
