A new blog at the New York Times

The New York Times has launched a new blog called LENS. It is off to a tremedous start already with chatter all over the internet.

From the blog:
"Lens is the photojournalism blog of The New York Times, presenting the finest and most interesting visual and multimedia reporting — photographs, videos and slide shows. A showcase for Times photographers, it also seeks to highlight the best work of other newspapers, magazines and news and picture agencies; in print, in books, in galleries, in museums and on the Web. And it will draw on The Times's own pictorial archive, numbering in the millions of images and going back to the early 20th century."

For me, I like seeing contemporary work right next to work from their archive.

My favorite so far is Fred R. Conrad's "Slow Photography in an Instantaneous Age".

Be sure to bookmark the blog. It's that good.
