What is photojournalism? - Ed Kashi

Below is his response, illustrated with examples that highlight the 3 distinct parts of Ed’s definition. PART I: Photojournalism is a unique and powerful form of visual storytelling originally created for print magazines and newspapers but has now morphed into multimedia and even documentary filmmaking. Through the internet, apps and the mobile device explosion, photojournalism can now reach audiences never before imagined with immediate impact, while continuing to write our visual history and form our collective memories.

Replacing photojournalists with drones will only bring us 'war porn' “John Simpson and I put our lives in danger year after year, and countless other war correspondents and their crews do the same.

Replacing photojournalists with drones will only bring us 'war porn'

An unmanned drone has no fear, no family, and no doubts. It will fly into the most dangerous, openly hostile environment and capture the best, most incredible images that us ‘real’ reporters could ever hope for.” I have to disagree.

It’s about its captured moments, be it in a second, or five hundredths of a second. Increments of time are imperceptible to the eye, but not to light sensitive film. The difference between a fifteenth of a second and a hundred and twenty-fifth of a second alters the way in which what stands before the camera is depicted. A blending happens at slower shutter speeds. What can be seen as sharply defined objects turn to mood and atmosphere that could have come from an artist’s brushstroke.

Shutter speed is just one technique photographers use to take visual information to a level beyond what, on its surface, it represents. In photography, these captured moments aren’t the only vehicles in which time works to bring about feeling. Photographs by Iraqi Civilians.

Neil Burgess stepped forward two months ago to call the death of photojournalism at ''11.12 GMT 1st August 2010. Amen.'' ''There are thousands of the poor bastards, creating massive debt for themselves, hoping to graduate and get a job which no one is prepared to pay for any more,'' he said in an online article. “For God’s sake, somebody call it!” For the last thirty-odd years, I’ve been listening to people talk about, or predict the death of photojournalism. John Szarkowski, the legendary curator of photography at MOMA New York even said that photojournalism stopped being interesting after 1958; I was just out of nappies then.

Newspapers are fading. Dead or alive? The state of photojournalism. Photography has always been associated with death. The French painter Paul Delaroche is supposed to have proclaimed, “From today, painting is dead” after he saw his first daguerreotype. Whatever the provenance of that quote, miniature portrait painting was replaced by new photographic technologies, even though their long exposure times meant, as Geoffrey Batchen has written, “if one wanted to appear lifelike in a photograph, one first had to act as if dead.”

And with the rise of digital technologies in the 1980s and 1990s the discourse of photography’s death gained new life, as various commentators declared that the ease of image manipulation meant that photography’s documentary status had come to a terminal end. As a specific practice within the broad field of photography, photojournalism has had its death proclaimed on numerous occasions too. Geerst van Kesteren.
