On 8th May in 1945. the 2nd World War ended. This day is celebrated ever since then as the Victory In Europe – VE Day. The commemoration speech of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is a good occasion to emember work of war photographers, as they have a great contribution to how we remember evennts of history.
This time it is not as comprehensive a list as I made in the case of the photography documentaries. It is rather just a short selection of my favourite feature movies. A similar one I made about movies inspiring photographers. Some of them I already wrote about here on my blog (at least on the Hungarian version) while others I didn’t mention yet.
Many of my female friends don’t like the masculine folk tradition of Easter waterings that is mandatory part of the festive in Hungary. Some straight consider it to be harrassment – including my photos of it. I think it is important to tell on Easter Monday I too get watered – I hope not to wither without this celebrartion this year!
Just like at the start of every new year I made my collection of the best photos selections from newspapers in my home country and leading newspapers of the world as well. Enjoy browsing them!
A San Diegoi police officer unholstered his gun because he was unable to decide if a camera or weapon is aimed at him by a cameraman. The frighetned photographer resisted to put down the camera, but in the end the conflict ended without gunshot.

Yesterday along the rest of Hungarian and international media I photographed the recovery of the passenger boat Mermaid that suffered a tragic accident in Budapest on river Danube almost two weeks ago.

Cameraman and photojournalist work has some some broad similarities to the military operations. It requires experience, knowhow, concentration, coordination, can often be very exhausting and physically demanding. It is an obvious thought process to compare it to real military trainings. This appears in the great and funny commercial series of Sky Channel.
I make every year my collection of all the best photos of the year selections by various news sites. I did it this year as well. Once again this is the most complete collection of all the selections I fund online.
President Nixon had to resign after a corruption scandal and he motioned out his official photographer not to photograph the TV broadcast of his speech.
