A Darkness Visible: Afghanisthan" by Seamus Murphy

A Darkness Visible - Afghanistan

With all its troubles, Afghanisthan has become one of the working places of a whole load of photojournalists, starting from the brilliant Steve McCurry. One of the best works on Afghanisthan is Seamus Murphy’s “A Darkness Visible: Afghanisthan”. This story is the result of 14 years of travels in a dangerous and tormented land.

Travel Planning: Maximize your shooting using travel guidebooks

English Language Travel Guidebooks (from Wikipedia)

When you book an assignment or simply choose to work on your personal Travel Photography project, begins the process of travel planning. The travel planning process can take from a few days to several months, depending on the destination and your knowledge of it.

A reportage of your home town—a place you should know inside out—will certainly require less travel planning than an expedition to Antarctica. For the sake of this little article, I’ll omit the extremes, particularly the “Antarctica” one, which would require an entire book to explain.

Travel Photography is not a photographic genre

Travel Photography is clearly my vocation. I’m the opposite of a manichean. The Pope can hate me, but I’m the son of current relativism. This doesnt mean that I dont have opinions which I have or Im not able to judge things, but I rather tend to establish my point of view relatively to mutual standpoints.

Indeed, I think there isn’t.
