James Estrin is a founder of Lens, the New York Times's photography blog and is it’s co-editor along with David Gonzalez. Mr. Estrin is also a Senior Staff Photographer for the New York Times. He has worked for the Times since 1987 and was part of a Pulitzer Prize winning team in 2001.

He is mostly interested in reviewing documentary work, in the broadest sense of the term, and photojournalism. But he is also interested in seeing art photography, street photography and portraiture.  He is not interested in seeing commercial or fashion work.

Mr. Estrin  is looking for work that might be published in the Lens blog. Because he is an editor and a photographer,  he can offer advice on how to complete or improve works in progress as well as suggestions on  presenting and promoting finished projects.
