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?

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…

Unfortunately photojournalism is dead simply because it is impossible to consider a job. Publications no longer pay for a 
photo essay, and in any case would not be a full-fledged story because usually we talk about an illustrated work.

 

The economic crisis is affecting the media, which suffer a drop in paper consumption of the product, while the new 
generation of information consumers migrate to the Internet. Not Yet yet resolved how to make money online at the same scale took the paper, ie, charging for advertising or to read content. Therefore, the media experience, have less money 
spend on producing their own information, and this, in turn, affects photojournalism. There are fewer assignments, less money for work and less security.

Apart, many photojournalists and photographers work for free, the digital age isdoing great damage to photojournalism


What i like about photojournalism is that it likes to shoot life and facts literally, and they do not want to make up something. They do not want, and they can not serve anything how they want it to be shown, as in written journalism you can manipulate words without even understanding it sometimes, but in true spirit of photojournalism it is there in front of you, and is worth more than a 1000 words. This is the basic theory about it, but nowadays it's mostly about selling the shootings and making it to the big front pages...at the end well no one has a care in the world. mmmm you made me think...

Criminalization of defamation: 'press freedom' or judicial integrity?

In a web search for defamation, one sees various articles mentioning the criminalization of defamation: in a variety of countries, such as eastern European or Russian countries, or Zimbabwe. Various human rights organizations or NGOs are reported to have signed protests against recent attempts to re-introduce criminal defamation into law in some of them. It is often argued as an attack on press freedom.The European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) does not apparently support criminalization of…See More
