I recently discovered the Photo Essay section of Foreign Policy magazine’s website and would like to recommend an occasional visit to their site to see what is new.

While the design and layout of the section leaves a lot to be desired, once you get to one of the photo essays that they have assembled the presentation is much better.

The photo at the right by Moises Saman appeared in a photo essay entitled “The Shooting War” and it really caught my attention. The business as usual attitude of this man walking through a war zone in central Baghdad on his way to work is unimaginable for those of us who do not live in a war zone. Quite a striking image.

Photos in this essay include images from the wars in Iraq, Sudan, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Lebanon, Gaza and Chechnya.

Another very interesting essay on the site is a first person account of the two and a half weeks spent in Haiti by photojournalist Chris Hondros of Getty Images.

Other photo essays currently on their site include:
