Reporters Without Borders Campaign

I was browsing the art and design publications at Borders today and ended up getting Archive, because of amazing page. The page was in the "social justice" section of the magazine, and had two photos from a Reporters Without Borders advertising campaign.

Since this was a Spanish campaign, I could only find this link to the photos, and they're a bit small... The RSF campaign tries to promote the dangers associated with journalism by showing the last photographs retrieved from the cameras of photojournalists working in dangerous places. This was really, really powerful stuff.

... Since those are difficult to see, and the small digital size does them little justice, here's a clip of Kevin Sites discussing his work in war zones. Note that this video is graphic, so viewer discretion is advised.
