I was pleased to note that about 12 out of the 30 photographs featured in the Denver Post Photo Blog's Pictures of the Week: September 2, 2001 are by non Western photographers.

The above photograph is of an Indian offering Eid al-Fitr prayers at the Jama Masjid mosque in New Delhi on August 31, 2011.

Except for the images of the Libyan uprising, all the photographs of non Western subjects are by non Western photographers...Muhammed Muheisen, Vahid Salemi, Fareed Khan, Manan Vatsyayana, Anupam Nath, Khalil Senosi, Noah Seelam, Rajesh Kumar Singh, and Rahmat Gul.

The world is changing!
