Another Banker Turned Photojournalist

When I came across this article I was absolutely thrilled. I have been an admirer of Marcus Bleasdale's work for years. His Media Storm piece on the Democratic Republic of Congo, entitled "Rape of a Nation" is not only beautiful but couldn't have been a more timely piece of photojournalism as the country recently erupted in conflict once again. As someone who also made a career change from the investment world to photojournalism, I too hope that I have become a nicer guy.

You can find the Times article here.
