Week One.



PHOTOJOURNALISM: journalism that presents a story primarily through the use of pictures.

Dependant on;
Time sensitivity
Objective & accurate depiction of events
Working nature.

Often combined with other elements such as words. Photojournalists often work with a writer.

Photojournalism encounters a lot of ethical dilemmas in terms of photo manipulation (Enhancing vs distorting), privacy, graphic and shocking images.

You can view the gallery on Eugene's website at;
