The photography world lost one its most gifted contributors today with the death of veteran AP photojournalist Anja Niedringhaus in Afghanistan. 

For the past few years, Anja was able to shed light on the realities of war in Afghanistan in a way that only a photojournalist of her caliber could pull off. See more of her incredible work below.

Erika Larsen has a new project out about Native Americans and their relationship with horses. 

see, some of these images are so good. but, at the same time, i don’t know if it is bad or good thing, but the first thing i wanted to know about this work is if this was a product of “National Geographic Syndrome” [technically exquisite, yet culturally displaced; beautiful, but from a narrow, anthropologically {“well-intentioned”} approach]. i want to just enjoy these images for what they are, not thinking about where they are coming from, but i can’t help it. i feel that in 2014, if you are shooting social documentary work, context and content cannot be forgotten and should continue to raise questions. Isn’t that point of the work in the first place? I don’t know, I really do love these images, but I always have to ask, you know?
