lens.pngThe New York Times launched a new photojournalism blog, Lens, on its Web site Friday.

The blog, which already features some striking and beautiful photos, promises to offer “some of the most interesting visual and multimedia reporting: in photographs, videos, audio slide shows and any other medium that fits – our format.”

Added David W. Dunlap in Lens’ first post:

“Lens will be a showcase for the work of Times photographers, but it will also highlight the best images from other newspapers, magazines, news organizations and picture agencies, and from around the Web. It will point readers in the direction of important books, galleries and museum exhibitions. And it will draw on the Times‘s own pictorial archive, numbering in the millions of images and going back to the early 20th century.”

We’re going to keep our eye on Lens for interesting and inspiring photos. But we’re wondering, what do you think about it?
