Expecially, I was thinking about the concept of clear and objective journalistic information on one hand, and the easy possibility to retouch and to manipulate images, by photographers and journalists themselves on the other. According to this, and to the fact the modern society is characterized by the massive presence of images, is it possible to use a photograph as a news itself, or the image will be always influenced by the need of show?
yes photojournalism/photographs is intrestible when we are talking about news, i think news only can be only pictures when events are past known and also pictures remains historic and necessary to express past events i hope photojournalism will give view every person.
interesting question. yes and no but it is heavily based upon content.
we live in a day and age whereby people have access to everything and everyone is a photographer, a photo retoucher and so forth. the one main aspect that sperates real photography or journalism in this case, from the rest is the images technical ability to capture a moment/ the story in the perfect moment.
everyone clicks but the best real journalistic images embody everything; as the photographer was in the right place, at the right time and was sensitive to the subject at hand. but the image itself, depending one content is not enough in many situations due to the access many people have to manipulation tools. Filming is at times a more anchoring source to consolidate worthy journalistic news. but again, its based upon content.
Il fotogiornalismo secondo me e una cosa che non muore mai. Sempre un imagine puo restare indimenticabile nella nostra memoria, specialmente se quel tema rimane attuale. Nelle storie di miserie, drame, fame, ma anche nei momenti di grande gioia e l’imagine quello che trasmette le “5 famose domande W” del reporter. Fotogiornalismo dal mio parere e come i primi film di Clarlie Chaplin (che parlano tramite l’imagine). Secondo me non e vero che il fotogiornalismo diffetta nello Storytelling, ansi certe volte puo parlare piu di un intero articolo. Fotogiornalismo si trova in un metamorfosi profondo, dove e costretto sopravivere in un momento dove la media electronica ha fatto dei gigandi passi avanti, ma una cosa e certa questo tipo di giornalismo sopravivera e non verra consideratto un relitte del 20 secolo…
