invited guest: Paul Hansen


The pictures of Paul Hansen shows us the world we know from the news
flashes. To me, he is one of the few photographers who manages to give
us the human perspective, to make us understand. Whether it is pictures
from the Tsunami, the war in Lebanon, people in Palestinian refugee camps
or of kids suffering from starvation, Paul Hansen gives us the human point
of view. Robert Frank once said something like " life for a photographer
cannot be a matter of indifference". Paul Hansen is not indifferent. He
has got important things to tell us. Many thanks for being here with us
at the F Blog. invited by ulf fågelhammar

A great invitee to the blog. Great to see some of Paul Hansen's pictures here. I recognise them from Dagens Nyheter - nice to be reminded of them again.

I'm proud of having collaborated with a blog like this, where my humble shots are now shown beside so strong and loud-speaking testimonial of the "world's wrongs".
