i only joined this forum a few minutes ago - pretty stumped as to how I go about introducing myself/ how to start new posts etc etc - is there a new members section??
Anyway...Back to topic - Photojournalism....
I'm mesmerised by the photographers from the era of "Life" magazine. I have around 50 copies in the loft. When one considers how basic their equipment was back then and then to view their work is simply breathtaking. It really knocks it home how much modern photojournalism has fallen in the last decade. I think the "photo essay" is what created the magic back then, whereas today's press photographers have to conjure up that story in one image - a pretty tall order by any means.
