    But amidst all the horror, the pain, the chaos of human existence, photography can also provide a new, amazing perspective.



    For those who don't know, the above image is of the Earth at 6.1 billion kilometres. It's that tiny speck suspended in the top sunbeam, and it's my favourite ever photo.

    There's too many good photos to choose from, but I focused on Vietnam because the photojournalism coverage of the war there is what ended it.

    It's an amazing image though. Not the best composed, the most beautiful or pretty much anything else, but definitely the most moving.

    Yep, I think amazing is an understatement tbh.

    This one is also pretty brilliant. Shows how fine a line we have between our comfortable planet, and the bleakness of space:

    The children running from their village in vietnam
    Same here. That's by far the most shocking picture I've seen and at the age of about 10-11 I imagine, was my first dose of just how horrendous human beings can be.

    Give her some of his food and water etc.
    There's a lot of things he could have done, and obviously the fact he latter killed himself might be a an indication of that.
    No, he killed himself due to depression. This one event may have effected him yes, but there was serveral other things that contribuated to his depression. He would have seen hundreds of straving children in that area that day. The UN plane probably didn't even have enough for them all, let alone this one photographer.

    Lol. But seriously the answer would be no - Israel blocks all glass and cement from entering Gaza, as well as food, water, medicines and international aid for that matter.

    Yeah interesting pics, but lets not forget he is being paid to do that job, and he is doing it out of choice. When you say that, the images don't really have the same effect.

    Your signature picture is too long, its causing the whole page to go bonkers. Put it in a spoiler or something.
    What are you on about, I've seen loads the same size or bigger and what is it doing to the page, maybe you have a small screen..
