A New Bedford photojournalist who covers the city as well as international events. If you only check out one section (though most are pretty moving), make it the section on Illegal Immigrants (called: "Inclusive Isolation"); it contains photos of the detainees involved in the Michael Bianco Illegal Immigrant raid in New Bedford in March of 2007 in which 391 illegal immigrants were detained.

"It can be more difficult when the question is to determine the "historical" worth of something. The price, even deflated for inflation, is not enough. Was Andrew Carnegie richer than Bill Gates? Did Babe Ruth make more than David Beckham? Was the cost of a loaf of bread more then than now? These questions all depend on the context and the calculators on this web site enable users to make their own comparisons."

For examples read:

Tons of photographs of the famous and not so famous, of man & machine, of truly vintage and more recent vintage with no real theme or thread. Some really great stuff.
