Richard Vogel: Photojournalism

Photograph © Richard Vogel-All Rights Reserved

Richard Vogel is chief photographer and photo editor for the Associated Press (AP) in Vietnam for the past 8 years. He's responsible for covering news events, developing feature stories, and providing assignments to photographers, and editing their work. He also photographs, edits, scans, and transmits final images to AP for worldwide distribution. He also worked as a photo editor in India which included coverage of the Indian/Pakistani standoff in Kashmir.

His web portfolio consists of 105 photographs made over the course of his career, mainly in South and South East Asia. In my view, his work is that of the consummate photojournalist; work that doesn't rely on sensationalism to be well worth of studying and appreciating.
