PhotoPlus Expo

I trekked down to the PhotoPlus Expo on Saturday to look at pretty pretty cameras, and stopped by the Canon stage to listen to NYTimes photographer Vincent Laforet speak.

Aside from being a completely amazing photographer (and teaching at the CU J-School!), Laforet embodies everything that I love about photojournalism. For him, the discipline is a fine art and an exact science, but above all a way to tell a story from a completely new angle (figuratively, literally, etc.). I think that some of his front page photos in the Times are among the most stunning visuals I've ever seen, both as art and as journalism.

Okay, done gushing. Go look at his site!
