John Stanmeyer on the Long Term Story

National Geographic shooter John Staneyer is starting a series of blog posts about working on in-depth pieces for the yellow-bordered magazine. From his first post, comes this bit of wisdom:

Some stories visually speak for themselves — war/conflict, social revolutions, famine and other event driven stories are primarily (though not all) about recording the occurrence transpiring before us. Long term photography projects are meditative, layered and protracted.

I think we all need to follow along.
