photojournalism in musing and pictures

Pictorials from the border

with one comment

Here are some pictorials from the borderlands project that I can’t really use for posting anywhere but here.

If you would like to see some more maquila pictures, I just put some up on our class site (that either no one else knows how, wants to, or can’t post on for some reason).  The little thumbnails for those galleries really drive me nuts but if I try to fix it tonight I will be up until 5 am and get nowhere but frustrated.

Riding the bus.

All this terrible news across the world is really getting to me so I came to hide out at my Mom’s house today. Thank God we have This American Life to guide us through the financial mess with last spring’s excellent “The Giant Pool of Money” and Friday’s “Another Frightening Show About the Economy“.  And James Nachtwey to give us harrowing images of XDR-TB, the world’s next great pandemic.  Life is wonderful and at least there is good journalism to show us how bad things really are.
