A talk With Photojournalist David Guttenfelder
The Atlantic's In Focus blog is a tremendous resource for appreciating fine photojournalism. And that's exactly what you can do with this tremendous post about photographer David Guttenfelder. I was unfamiliar with his name, but had definitely seen some of his amazing work. Guttenfelder just won the 2013 Infinity Awards from the International Center of Photography. He is currently the Chief Asia photographer for the Associated Press, and he's stationed in North Korea—delivering a rare glimpse inside the country. He shows the propaganda, sure, but he also shows the beautiful mundanity of real life—each are equally fascinating and important. The interview at the In Focus blog is, in my opinion, absolutely one of the most important videos you can watch about a contemporary photojournalist.
