Photojournalism is perhaps the most emotionally rewarding type of photography. But the financial reward can sometimes be more elusive.
Great wars, great depressions, and even greater celebrations are stories worth telling and relating to the world. This is the domain of the photojournalist, tirelessly spending hours on end in the streets, traveling from country to country, and putting themselves in harm’s way to make sure that the rest of us can be informed. They say the moment makes the man. And it is during the most trying times that the work of photojournalists around the world is most of value. We all face a trying time now. It may not be due to cannon fire, or the threat of nuclear fallout, but it is still a war for survival. We need photojournalists now more than ever.
