One of my favorite places to view great photography is the New York Times’ “Lens” blog. It shows photographers’ personal projects and enables photographers to “go deep” on assignments they’re shooting for both the paper and the New York Times Magazine. There is only so much space to run photos in the paper or online version, so Lens is an incredible outlet for images that there may not have been room for. On January 31, the magazine ran a story called The Luckiest Place on Earth about the Bakken Oil Boom. Magnum photographer Alec Soth shot the images and shows extra photos on Lens–as well as narrates a short audio piece about the experience shooting there. Incredible!
