Photo Friday: Just My Type

This week Flavorwire ran a great photo piece called Famous Writers and Their Typewriters, featuring greats like William Faulkner, Sylvia Plath and Langston Hughes. It's a really interesting slideshow, although most of the images are lifted directly from the LIFE magazine slideshow "In Praise of the Typewriter". I'm so in love with these two slideshows because a) I'm a writer and b) I love old things, especially black and white photographs.



The photo I picked for this week's Photo Friday isn't a famous writer at all but it's beautiful and intense. This is a TIME war correspondent working during World War II.



It almost looks like he's in a cave. I wonder what he was hearing at this moment?

What are your favorites from the slideshows?
