This month’s Photojournalism Links collection highlights 10 excellent photo essays from around the world, including Lynsey Addario‘s powerful work on three displaced children in South Sudan, Ukraine, and Lebanon. The photographs, made on assignment for The New York Times Magazine, were part of a cover story to draw attention to the world’s 30 million children driven from their homes by war and persecution. The print piece was accompanied by a remarkable virtual reality film that took the viewers inside each child’s daily lives.
