Moving Story and Photos from Victoria

I spotted this post over at Digital Photography Schools by Neil Creek about photographing a tragedy, and decided to bookmark it to Delicious to take a closer look at it later.

This evening, I got a chance to take a look at the story behind Neil’s advice, about how he was invited to Kinglake, a town that was virtually destroyed by the wildfires, and had the chance to talk to some of the locals and hear their stories. Between the post with practical advice for shooting in those circumstances, to the moving post and photos that you can see on his own blog, Neil does a great job of sharing the experience and the stories of what happened in Kinglake.

At the end of the day, what better way to show exactly why photography is an important part of telling a story.
