National Geographic Photo Essays

This month’s Photojournalism Links collection highlights 10 excellent photo essays from across the world, including Tomas Munita's photographs from Gaza and Israel, made on assignment for the New York Times. The work, coinciding with the first anniversary of last year's 50 day war between Israel and Palestinian militant groups, consists of eight innovative stop-motion-sequences which take us to the streets, hospitals, and homes on both sides of the conflict, and provide an immersive glimpse of how the two groups of communities are coping, one year after.
