Photojournalists use cameras to record and relay newsworthy events to the public. Whether it’s at someone’s home, a public sidewalk, a state capitol, or a conflict zone, photojournalists encounter a range of situations for which they must immediately decide what to include and exclude in a photograph. Every photo offers a multitude of details that can be investigated with a close read.
