This week Photojournalism Now: Friday Round Up is dedicated to my wonderful mother-in-law Nancy Taylor who passed away this week at the age of 83. She was a very important figure in my life, a woman whose amazing spirit carried her through life with joy and dignity despite the hardships she faced. I’m going to miss her.
Nancy loved to travel and equally loved photography. Her own archive is quite extensive and contains photographs of her many trips to places where few women of her generation travelled on their own including Zimbabwe and China. I know she would like the collection I share with you today from Sebastião Salgado’s Genesis, Edward Burtynsky’s China and finally, Nick Brandt’s, On this earth, a shadow falls. RIP dear Nan.
