Last week I exhibited a collection of fabulous war photos from LIFE. This week I’m continuing the war photography theme with the portfolio of one of the few women in the field Veronique de Viguerie, whom The Daily Beast recently deemed the world’s bravest photographer. Through her freelance work she has been able to access and photograph groups which most people consider to be in the unreachable dark corners of the world. From Somali pirates to the Taliban, Viguerie’s photographs are a new step in the photojournalistic franchise. Scan through her work by starting with my favorite gallery about the Afghan police ladies.
If venturing into some of the most dangerous places in the world for the sake of the photo isn’t your calling, how about considering immersing yourself in an Kenyan watering hole for three months to capture unique angles of wildlife in their native habitat? Oh, that idea has already been done by now disease-ridden Greg du Toit.
