This is a great little article, it conveys what the photojournalist is faced with very well. It was my first time in China a few weeks ago. I somehow just felt I knew what I had to do and I started doing it as well as I could. I still have loads to learn and I still had great difficulty in a few situations, like photographing mourners crying. I just wonder what the photojournalist means to them.

Now, I am going to go back to Yingxiu a little town that was very much destroyed by the quake. I would like to pursue a project there. Do you have any links or adivice on other work I can see that involved going back and doing a follow up pohoto story on a place destroyed by natural disaster?

My shots from the quake can be seen here by the way: http://www.flickr.com/photos/nickkozak/c ollections/72157605176803729/

Thank you,

Nick Kozak

I think its the only way the human race is moved to help.
I agree David, in such circumstances if you’re not doing something to help, you’re definately in the way of those doing so. Real and honest post

It is a very touching piece. Today that we hear so many criticism of the media. It is nice to read something like that to remind us why we do out job. And how we should do it.
And then we remember that all the critics of the media would surely like us to live in the Middle Ages again.
