100 years of Guardian photography. Including Don McPhee and Denis Thorpe.

Awesome - but a bit non-plussing until you click the 'captions' button, as the two people narrating make rather offhand references that don't actually describe the story behind the pictures half the time.

Moral of the story: should have stayed in the North like Don, Guardian; we're by far the most interesting and photogenic. Ahem.
Would be interested to know who the group with rifles behind the barricade are in the Doughty photos that appear at the end of the McPhee presentation. Easter Rising?

Ah, watching another one I see Doughty was in Dublin at the outbreak of the civil war. Click all links first, post twaddle later.

The Powell photograph is fantastic – some strange combination of Shakespearean tragedy mixed with some 70s Vincent Price hamming. The Status of Women Commission shot is especially wry.

Thanks for these.

100 years of Guardian photography, marred by a crummy Flash interface.
