What ever happened to picture books? Remember how well they told a story with few to no words? Remember when you read your first “chapter book” and how accomplished you felt? It seems as though, the older we get, the longer the content has to be. That’s not the case with photojournalism. Photojournalists are somehow able to capture incredible moments and tell incredible stories, often with no words at all. We might say we want content, content, content - and in many cases that’s true. I find myself constantly reading. Between academic journals, literature, business books, magazines, blogs, and news articles, I fill up just about every spare minute by consuming words. However, sometimes it’s nice to take a look at beautiful pictures and let those pictures explain their stories. http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/series/eyewitness lets me do just that. They showcase great pictures from around the world, commenting on global catastrophes, successes, events, and cultures. Take a look at some of the images below.
