Damming the American River
Dramatic imagesThe recent series of photographs from the Middle East are simply superb. Among the most striking are those illustrating the fighting of the Gulf oil fires, Aug. 1, and the front page Aug. 2, showing a group of Palestinians watching family members being loaded into buses to go to detention centers. With the eye of an artist and a strong sense of composition and drama, the photographer enriches the pages of the Monitor and adds immeasurably to the texts. Moyer Wood, Kennett Square, Pa.
