Zoriah

What keeps me awake until 3am tonight is Zoriah, an independent photojournalist of just stunning talent. Not just some Flickr hack - he's actually about to be removed from his embedded position in Iraq, presumably for these photographs of the aftermath of a suicide bombing (WARNING: EXTREMELY GRAPHIC). Or maybe for confirming that the US military arms local Iraqi militia. If you don't feel like staring directly into the eye of war, try Deconstructing China on for size.

Either way, what a talent, what a resource, what a human being he is. I'll be digging through his blog for more truth in the morning. Or maybe right after posting this.
