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 on-line publications, and visual reportage from Iraq. In a field all too often dominated by strictly "how-to" books, Langton provides an inviting mix of practical issues supported by in-depth examples from the field and critical thinking. Written by an award-winning photo editor and director of photography, and based on interviews with more than seventy high-profile journalists, the book will appeal to undergraduates and young professionals alike.
