I blame facebook

After a little break I am back. For those of you that remember the old blog, there might be some differences, first of all - more words - and secondly, some of the old photos might have been/will be *bleeped* to save some friends private parts.

How come there are new updates?

Well, mainly due to/because of facebook (fb). 1) The now/soon to be edited pictures of my friends' privates are much more suited to the insular world of facebook, and likewise, 2) the insularity of fb is not enough if you want to keep up a blog. A blog is, after all, there for everyone to see, not just your fb 'friends'. It requires someone savvy enough to find it in the first place, without the restriction of a network. I have no illusions of my readership, apart from a friend and some foes, but what gives inspiration is what gives meaning to life, so here's two examples for keeping on bloggin', and they're both on a photographic tip:

Martin von Krogh, a seasoned war photographer beyond his years, sadly he only blogs in Swedish, but for you Swedes, its well worth reading right from the beginning.

Alec Soth, a seasoned documentary photographer for Magnum (check out Magnum in motion), the most established photojournalistic agency in the world.

And just to add that this will mainly concern photojournalism from now on, here's a link to an interesting documentary, the links to parts 2 and 3 can be found on the same page.
