This is terrific. I doubt that it presages a return to the 'glory days'
of traditional PJ, but it's terrific none the less.

I wanted to share the following email from Leica user Peter Turnley:
Dear friends-

I would like to share with you some very exciting  news. I've been
offered a 
year, renewable agreement with Harpers  Magazine, to create 4 major 8
page photo-essays for the magazine during the  next year. I will be
listed on the masthead as a contributing editor and most  importantly
the philosophy behind this new agreement is that I will author my  own
visual stories that will be given very prominent display quarterly in a
magazine with a long and rich tradition of publishing excellent writing
and  journalism. I think this marks not only a very exciting opportunity
for me,  but also a wonderful development for photojournalism and for
the use of  visual storytelling in magazine journalism. Please read more
about this news  in an article that has just been published today on the  site:

I  look forward to your seeing the first photo-essay that will appear in
the August issue of Harpers Magazine which will speak visually to a
very important theme in world affairs today, in a way that I think has
not  been seen or treated prominently before.

My best. Peter  Turnley
