    The camera is almost certainly a Sony H1 megazoom compact, just FYI.

      You’d be surprised how little different the type of camera makes. What matters most is the skill, empathy, attitude, artistic talent, and sharp observation of the photographer. On that basis, I think Qamar Hashim has a bright future.

    Adverbial denotation sanction. IMO

    Headline: “Meet Iraq’s youngest photographer”. Article: “He is the youngest Iraqi photographer to win several local awards….” Video: “…Iraq’s youngest professional photographer.” So, while he’s young, he’s not necessarily “Iraq’s youngest photographer.”

    I would really appreciate it if Boing Boing could please refrain from posting articles about eight-year-old children who have better skills than I do.

    Get that kid a Leica! But I’m sure all the young hip Iraqis would prefer a mirrorless camera with some Saddam-era glass.

    The second photo with the sleepy bookseller (who looks like Mr. Henry Beamis from the Twilight Zone ep.”Time Enough at Last”) looks like a typical office here at Random House. :/
