Happy new year!
2007 ended very appropriately for us: As we were leaving, our shopping-bag broke. The champagne bottle in it fell to the floor and exploded, spraying us with broken glass and bubbly.
It’s a good analogy for how we felt most of 2007: harassed, stressed, late, and in the middle of a disaster zone.
So, we’re looking forward to 2008. I hope you are all too!
We wish you all a happy new year, filled with all of the things you could want.
I can’t recommend Hughes Leglise-Bataille enough.
His photojournalist series on protests by Paris firefighters is amazing. Have a look at it here – “Au feu, les pompiers !”
Demonstrating the power of Flickr and the creative-commons licence, his work has been used or featured on CNN Exchange, BBC World, Salon, and Le Monde, to name but a few.
He’s also the winner of the “National Press Photographers Association” prizes for “Amateurs Photoblogs” on both “News” and “Photojournalism”.
