The Sunday Still from Patrick Farrell: Violence at the Venezuelan Border
Photojournalist Patrick Farrell has joined the blog with his weekly feature, The Sunday Still. Farrell selects one image each week that showcases the best photojournalism by photojournalists from around the world. The feature runs weekly in The Sunday Long Read. The goal of the newsletter, edited by Don Van Natta Jr. and Jacob Feldman, is to put the week’s best journalism in your hands every Sunday morning.
Sometimes you have to use your feet to zoom in rather than the lens. Marco Bello of Reuters risked personal harm on Feb. 23 to deliver a tight shot that delivered us to the Venezuela-Colombia border, where the Venezuela National Guard and protestors clashed over the delivery of U.S.-backed emergency food and medical supplies to the crumbling country.
Patrick Farrell, the curator of The Sunday Still, is the 2009 Pulitzer Prize-winner for Breaking News Photography for The Miami Herald, where he has worked since 1987. He is currently a Lecturer in the Department of Journalism and Media Management at the University of Miami School of Communication.
