Chicago Sun-Times fires all staff photographers | What's new in Visual Communication? |

On Thursday, June 2 the Chicago Sun-Times newspaper announced that it was laying off its entire 28-person staff of photographers.

The Sun-Times photographers were informed of their layoffs in a profoundly hostile manner despite years, in some cases decades, of work for the newspaper. On Wednesday night, they were all told to come to the office the next day at 9:30 a.m. for what would be just the second meeting with the new owners since the paper was purchased by Wrapports LLC.
