Kashi’s Kurdistan “Flip Book” Shown on MSNBC

National Geographic photographer Ed Kashi’s “flip book” style of slideshow presentation about daily life in Kurdistan debuted Tuesday at MSNBC and has drawn strong critical reactions.

The 12-minute multimedia presentation was culled from thousands of photos he took while on assignment in Iraqi Kurdistan last year for the National Geographic. It was brought together in collaboration with his friend Brian Storm, who spent 7 years as MSNBC’s multimedia director and who now has his own MediaStorm production studio.

The flip book technique that they used to present the still photos in quick succession could get annoying if used extensively. But on the whole, their Kurdistan presentation was critically acclaimed for its substance and message.
