Photojournalists Bring Us The Story of JapanDPMag Published in Blog
With all of the coverage of the earthquake and tsunami devastation in Japan, I’ve found myself turning to photojournalists for a better understanding of what I’m seeing. Sure, television’s moving pictures do inform us quite effectively about what’s happening—especially on the broader scale. But I’ve noticed that the places in which I’m gaining a detailed understanding of the state of life on the ground in northern Japan all involve still photographs. I think it’s for this reason that photojournalists will always be integral to news gathering—even in a 24-hour television news cycle. For a dramatic and emotional gallery of images of the aftermath, perhaps no news galleries are better than the Boston Globe’s Big Picture and the Sacramento Bee’s The Frame. Be prepared, though—the images are heartbreaking.
