The LightBox section of TIME Magazine is always worth a look, I think.

Here’s this weeks Closeup.

The photographs capture more than a newsreel. There isn’t such a distance creating by the lens. What I mean is, a still photograph has a much stronger and personal effect.

When you see the fear in the face of the Rebel Fighter in Libya or the serenity and jaded beauty of the memorial in Norway or the serious face of the murder suspect standing a foot away from the police officer you can’t help but feel that these are real lives being affected by real situations.
