Following a recommendation from Krishna, I watched the documentary on conflict photojournalist Chris Hondros, who died in Libya.

It is a brilliant movie, and hugely thought provoking. If you haven’t seen it, I think it’s a must watch. The way that humanity is portrayed, good and bad, just goes up so many notches. And great story telling.

The essence of a photographer – not just Chris but all the other photographers interviewed in the documentary.

Amazing images, emotional interviews. Not sure whether to be inspired or just plain frustrated about my own work.
