After a unique, four-day online auction, MSNBC has won the exclusive Internet rights for a feature on Iraqi Kurdistan by photographer Ed Kashi. The feature, prepared by multimedia producer Brian Storm, will premier on MSNBC.com on November 13.

I had a chance to preview the Kashi piece while the auction was taking place, and I can tell you it is unlike anything I’ve seen before, at least in terms of its narrative structure. The auction itself is also something of a new development in the online world.
