At university, I study journalism (amongst some other things) - and more than ever before, I'm realising that I am truly passionate about journalism and communication, and the power it possesses.
There are so many things I could talk about relating to this - and I feel that over time, I will - but today's post relates to my yesterday!
Yesterday, I ended up randomly (or fatefully) watching a documentary about a magazine and journalism. One part of it talked about photojournalism, communicating news through photographs, and it reminded me just how much I love photojournalism. I only (naively) properly became aware of Photojournalism as a practice at the beginning of last year - when I learnt about it and completed a piece of work on it.
After discovering it, I decided it was probably one of my absolute favourite news forms. I could write more and explain more about what Photojournalism is, but in the spirit of it - I'll just show you :)
Because of an assessment, I found this website:
The thing about Photojournalism is it shows you the good, the bad, and the ugly, in its truest form possible. It's SO easy to understand the news story from it.
The other website I love is:
"Each week, TIME LightBox presents one news photograph selected from among the thousands shared on the news wires. Published in the magazine, these images, now featured in this gallery, offer a close look at the world’s most impactful events..."
They select the most striking photograph of the week...and I just love this one!
Do you guys get what I mean when I say I love Photojournalism?
Photographs are powerful.
They can instigate emotions, change behaviour and impact the way society operates.
As for the story I did my assessment on that cemented my love for it?
My piece of writing on it follows below:
Hope you guys enjoyed this post, even though it turned into a essay...I tend to do that a lot, whoops :P
New blog post will be up next Tuesday!
Until then, you can follow me on -
They're all linked so you should just be able to click on them! :)
Have a great rest of the week!
