Overview

Photojournalism and Today's News provides an intelligent and practical look at photojournalism and the newsroom. Remarkable in its breadth and clarity, Langton's book is an essential guide for aspiring photojournalists and young professionals to newsroom culture and how that culture influences photographic assignments, production, and editing. It also explores the relationships formed between photographers and their subjects, and it considers ethical issues, changes brought about by online publications, and visual reportage from Iraq.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The critique is well argued and firmly rooted in the work of Roland Barthes, Susan Sontag, Arthur Asa Berger and other philosophers and semioticians who have looked critically at visual mass media. ... The practical advice and lessons about best practices will be exceptionally valuable to anyone—student or recent graduate—who wants to improve and succeed in the profession of photojournalism. (Global Media Journal, Autumn, 2009)

"A well balanced introduction to the medium of photojournalism. While important ideals are explored in depth, and 'best practice' encouraged, Langton lends a certain pragmatism to the way in which the work is carried out in the real world. This balance is very helpful for any person with aspirations towards a career in photojournalism." (M/C Reviews, April 2009)
