“I have been a photojournalist for the past 25 years, and have had the incredible opportunity to witness many of the worlds’ defining moments of modern history; the fall of the Berlin Wall and the end of Communism in Eastern Europe in 1989; the end of apartheid in South Africa and Nelson Mandela walking out of prison in 1991; and most of the worlds’ conflicts of the past three decades. When our bus pulled into Maryland, on the eve of the inauguration, I knew after hearing the words of my fellow passengers, in some sense fellow pilgrims, that I was in the midst of a moment of history like maybe no other in terms of its historic magnitude, that I had ever witnessed and certainly not in America.” ~ Peter Turnley
The February issue of The Digital Journalist is now online. This month features some great inauguration pieces, including a gallery, posts by both Dirck Halstead and Peter Howe, and links to a video piece and a blog post by Peter Turnley. David Bergman also discusses his gigapan image.
In non-inauguration news, this month’s Dispatches section features four viewpoints from Gaza. It’s definitely worthwhile to spend some time over at Digital Journalist this month!
