I have sent a link to a few of my friends to the work of photographer Emilio Morenatti and every single one of them has replied to thank me for the link (below), which in itself is truly rare. So Emilio's work must be as stunning to others as it is to me.
I didn't know who Emilio Morenatti was before last week, although I know I have seen his pictures both online and in our local newspaper (which carries the Associated Press images). So I dug up a little bit of biography on him:
I don't envy the job he is doing, because he is taking photographs sometimes right in the line of fire. It seems quite dangerous to me, short of being right in the war itself. On August 12, 2009, Emilio was injured while on assignment.
So thanks to him and others like him who put themselves in harm's way in order to show us true pictures of a world we may never see in person. I have never played billiards next to a gutter full of refuse as these boys are, and the contrast of the happiness of children next to the conditions in which they live is amazing and striking:
Here is the link to Emilio Morenatti's work from the Denver Post.
Enjoy, and appreciate.
