Newsweek’s Tina Brown announced this week that the print version of the magazine would end. I’m sorry for the people who will lose their jobs, but I don’t think the magazine, in its present state, will be terribly missed. It’s a long way since the glory days when Newsweek was known for fresh reporting and photography. I was lucky enough to work for the publication back then under amazing photo editors including: Jim Colton, Guy Cooper, John Whelan, John Filo, Sarah Harbutt, Elizabeth Gallin, Jesse DeWitt, and the list goes on and on. I met the amazing writer Carla Power there. I have huge gratitude to the old Newsweek for giving me my start and sending me around the world. Below are some nostalgic offerings.
