In Focus blogt regelmatig op TheAtlantic.com een serie foto's over zaken die spelen in het nieuws of daar zijdelings mee te maken hebben. Deze keer is er een fotoserie te bewonderen met de titel 'Nieuwsfoto's - Not Where They Hoped They'd Be'.
Een korte beschrijving van de fotoserie in het engels:
Reuters recently assigned a number of photographers to capture images of a struggling generation. The result is this series of portraits of graduates from around the world who have been unable to find work in their degree fields and have ended up in poorly paid service industry jobs. Although their current positions may be disappointing, the subjects in these photos may count themselves lucky to have any job at all -- the International Labor Organization estimates the number of people aged 15 to 24 without a job at almost 75 million. From a cook in Athens with a degree in civil engineering to a waiter in Algiers with a masters in corporate finance, these young people have spent years studying hard to compete in the 21st century, only to discover that even the most desirable qualifications mean little in a distressed global economy.
