what a boost for my ego: last monday the ‘sueddeutsche zeitung’ (1.35 mio readers) has printed the picture above together with a report about the results of munich’s activities in eastern sri lanka.

[edit:]regarding the ego: of course the whole project is a gratification per se: being able to dedicate your energy to the improvement of the life circumstances of victims of such a large scale disaster is a value by itself. it’s only that i am not always an ideal selfless person-

therefore you will understand my disappointment about the fact that my authorship wasn’t mentioned… well, joy and sorrow always take turns.

  1. It’s great that your photo was used but horrible that no mention of the photographer was given.

    It is a great shot.

  2. Congrats for the publication Markus – for the credits maybe you should simply ask them (maybe you did !?) – as for the image I really like the glance of the kid to the camera – very well spoted !

  3. That’s certainly a telling shot – photojournalism sometimes really works I guess.

    Congratulations to your publications! A shot in der SĂĽddeutschen is certainly something! Wow…

    That they didn’t mention the photographer surprises me a bit. That newspaper usually has a good reputation for handling their supporters (photographers, freelance writers, etc.) good.
