I was clicking from links of blogs to links of blogs when I found this. The credit caught my attention because it's by Xinyao, who used to intern on and off at TNP. I've also worked with her during the Chron days.
There are nice photos on the site. Take a look.
But the best photo essay/photo journalism site is still from Mr Sanguine. When you combine great write ups with great photos, that's when you give depth to the story.
