Joao Silva is one of the most incredible artist in the world of Photography. We have all seen his pictures, you just don't know it.

I can't stand the callers attitude, they have no idea, how could you be so smug and disrespectful in your tone.

Give this guy some respect, he's one of the most respected people in Journalism and Photography! GOOD LUCK Joao, All the best!

i love the way the press is held out as heroic, not as reckless. Mean while thousands of american vets are injuried and not one NPR or WNYC interview.
