2009 Best of Lens-NY Times Photojournalism Blog
Lens is the photojournalism blog of The New York Times, presenting a world of inspiration thorough visual and multimedia reporting, including photographs, videos and slide shows. Launched this year, it is a showcase for Times photographers, but also seeks to highlight the best work of other outlets, whether presented in print, books, galleries, in museums or on the Web. Showcase: A Global Album is a compilation of the photos that best capture the diversity of the places and people visited by the Time’s Travel Section in 2009. From an infinity pool bar in Thailand to a couple kissing in the Saxon Gardens of Warsaw, the images are enough to momentarily pull you away from your desk and transport you to a distant, perhaps unfamiliar place. Yes, they’re that good.
