Photojournalism

Photojournalism

Originally published in 1991. "A photojournalist is a mixture of a cool, detached professional and a sensitive, involved citizen. The taking of pictures is much more than F-stops and shutter speeds. The printing of pictures is much more than chemical temperatures and contrast grades. The publishing of pictures is much more than cropping and size decisions. A photojournalist must always be aware that the technical aspects of the photographic process are not the primary concerns." This book addresses ethics in photojournalism in depth, with sections on the philosophy in the discipline, on pictures of victims or disaster scenes, on privacy rights and on altering images. As important and interesting today as when it was first in print.

The International Photojournalism Industry

The International Photojournalism Industry

How are events turned into news pictures that define them for the audience? How do events become commodified into pictures that both capture them and reiterate the values of the agencies that sell them? This book looks at every stage of the production of news photographs as they move to and from the ground and are sold around the world. Based on extensive fieldwork at a leading international news agency that includes participant observation with photographers in the field, at the agency’s local and global picture desks in Israel, Singapore, and the UK, in-depth interviews with pictures professionals, and observations and in-depth interviews at The Guardian’s picture desk in London, the findings in this book point to a wide cultural production infrastructure hidden from – and yet also nurtured and thus very much determined by – the consumer’s eye.

Ted Grant

Ted Grant

Ted Grant, the undisputed father of Canadian photojournalism, has made a career out of being in the right place at the right time. Over his sixty years in the business, he has immortalized some of the greatest events in history and caught some of the world's most famous and elusive subjects in rare moments of unaffected humanity. From Pierre Trudeau sliding jubilantly down a banister to Ben Johnson in his brief moment of glory at the 1988 Olympics to Sue Rodriguez in her right-to-die campaign, Grant has amassed a collection of over 300,000 photographs—the largest by a single photojournalist in Canadian history. Based on over fifty interviews with the man himself (as well as with his family, friends and colleagues across Canada) and extensive research of the Ted Grant Special Collections in Ottawa, this book is both an iconic and an intimate portrait of the second half of the twentieth century, Canada's coming of age, and the man who saw it all through the lens of his camera.

The Book Of Veles

The Book Of Veles

Photographs of contemporary Veles are intertwined with fragments from an archaeological discovery also called 'the Book of Veles' -- a cryptic collection of 40 'ancient' wooden boards discovered in Russia in 1919, written in a proto-Slavic language.

Truth Needs No Ally

Truth Needs No Ally

Nothing has more power to communicate the destruction and despair of our time than the documentary photograph. The Tiananmen Square massacre, the Kent State shootings, the Kennedy assassination, the civil rights movement - these events have been indelibly etched in the minds of Americans through the work of photojournalists. In Truth Needs No Ally, Howard Chapnick, one of the giants of contemporary photojournalism, offers a historical, philosophical, pragmatic, and inspiring look at the profession. From the exhilarating early years of LIFE and Look magazines, through the explosion of photographic technology, Howard Chapnick takes us through the fascinating history of documentary photography. He discusses the modern capacities for computerized manipulation of photos and argues passionately for unflinching ethical standards on the part of photographers and editors alike. Filled with lively anecdotes from the author's fifty-year career and written in an engaging, personal style, Truth Needs No Ally covers myriad practical, creative, and ethical issues, including professional conduct, challenges facing women and minorities in photojournalism, developing a portfolio, cultivating a personal style, and government manipulation of the media. With dozens of photographs - many in color - representing photographic journalism at its best, Truth Needs No Ally is the definitive book on photojournalism by a master of the craft.

Bending The Frame

Bending The Frame

The older paradigm for photojournalists was to simply record events, with the hopeand frequently the expectationthat people and their governments would be moved to respond to the injustices pictured; as witnessed by the impact of certain images during the Civil Rights movement and the Vietnam War. Given evolving media and political climates, however, including the billions of images now available online from all kinds of sources, the purpose and effectiveness of media, in particular of visual journalism, has been called into question. Bending the Frame: Photojournalism, Documentary, and Citzenship, by author and critic Fred Ritchin, addresses the new and emerging potentials for visual media to impact society. Ritchin examines the historical and contemporary uses of photography and related media to inspire social change. From the unintended consequences of citizen journalism and leaked images such as those from Abu Ghraib, to the new strategies by visual journalists and the targeted human rights projects by documentary photographers, the intention of this book is to provide a much-needed critical approach to the issues involved in such efforts. Also encompassing online efforts, uses of video, and a diverse range of books and exhibitions, Bending the Frame aims for as wide-ranging and farreaching a discussion as possible, asking the critical question: how can images promote new thinking and make a difference in the world?
