Why ccM works..

From John Pazdan in the forums.

A really good thing happened today..a photojournalist used my piece “The Long Goodbye” in a multimedia article that ran in the International Herald Tribune, as well as the New York Times ....

I cannot say how happy I am about this happening, especially as the music was used for a just cause......
Migrants in Calais, France produced by Ellie Markovitch for the International Herald Tribune. Photos by Susan Meiselas/Magnum Photos and Reporting by Caroline Brothers.

Way to go John. : )

@ Susan: Thanks. The photography in this piece is amazing; moving and poignant... so good it doesn't even need a narrative or music. A wonderful example of how real photojournalism can bring a point to "readers" in a way that print can't.

@ T: As usual ...without the power of The Mighty ccM collective, this match would not have been possible. ccM and The Commons works, plain and simple.
