Images Worth Perusing

An interesting find and a valuable place to look at images–BagNews features some provocative and informative photographers and their work.

For example, an image they posted of the Japanese “sumimasen” (apology without end) in action:

(photo: AFP/Getty. caption: Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) president Masataka Shimizu (C) and company executives bow to evacuees to apologise for the accident at their company’s Fukushima daiichi no. 1 nuclear-power plant at a shelter at Koriyama in Fukushima prefecture on April 22, 2011. Families forced to flee their homes by radiation leaks from a tsunami-hit Japanese nuclear-power plant on Friday angrily berated the head of the operator as he apologised for the disaster.)
