French Paper Publishes Photo-less Issue to Stress the Importance of Photojournalism

French Paper Publishes Photo-less Issue to Stress the Importance of Photojournalism | The Art of Photography | Scoop.it
French newspaper Libération is about to score huge brownie points with photographers the world over. At a time when newspaper photography jobs are disappea
C.O.'s insight:

I have collected 3 articles about the elminiation of Photojournalism in the news industry.  To some, these articles may not be related to my topics.  However, photojournalism is an important genre or element of photography.  Hence, I think it's important to follow the issue.  

This latest article clearly shows a big contrast of the French and the US newspaper industry's take on Photojournalism!   I don't believe a person without any trainings in journalism, sensitive of the news, and photography skills can replace the photojournalists.

ASX.TV: Daido Moriyama - "Reaching Out the Senses" (2012) - Since 2008, AMERICAN SUBURB X | Art, Photography and Culture that matters. | The Art of Photography | Scoop.it
Daido Moriyama first came to prominence in the mid-1960s with his gritty depictions of Japanese urban life.
C.O.'s insight:

The art of photography is not about photos.  Rather it's more about the photographers.  How photographers perceive the world, life, and even themselves. Moriyama is a 73 years old photogrpahers.  The interview let us understand how he percieve the world, how he see photography, what drives him keep walking on the city street and taking photos, does age affect his work?  I think more interviews of this kind should be included here.

Alison Gibson Interview: Brooding like the 90s. Unhurried. Distilled. Portraiture at PhotoWhoa Blog | Discover how you can be a better photographer | The Art of Photography | Scoop.it
British photographer Alison Gibson has a knack for making images appear self-fulfilled. The emotional yet highly restrained moments look weightless and unburdened, seemingly caught in their natural state, as if taken by the ether.
