The best of photojournalism doesn't capture the biggest celebrity or the bloodiest battle. It, instead, captures a moment of intense emotion. Most of the enduring news photos have that quality — as does yours. It's powerful, not because it's a "big" moment, but rather because it's a small but very personal moment that viewers can understand and feel for themselves.


William Albert Allard once wrote that his best pictures were found on the fringes of the situation he was photographing. I have found that to be true as well. It is often better to turn my back on the drama of the news setting, and to photograph the faces or reactions of the people observing the news making scene. There you find sometimes subtle, but very real emotion that shows the humanity of the news.


You have done a very good job of using the small private moment to represent the larger and more impersonal truth. In these people's faces, one can see the pain of loss and despair.
