In Support of Joao Silva
The New York Times contract photographer Joao Silva, one of the major conflict photojournalists of our time, stepped on a mine while on assignment in Afghanistan a couple of weeks ago, and as a consequence his legs have had to be amputated below the knees. He is now recovering at Walter Reed Medical Center in Washington, DC.
His friends have set up a new website to raise funds for him by selling some of his prints. So please consider helping him by buying a print, by making a donation, or by forwarding/tweeting this post.
