Supreme Examples of PhotoJournalism


A picture says a thousand words, we have all heard it, right? If there’s any kind of photography that justifies this statement, it’s photojournalism. Today I chose a sub-category of photo-journalism and made a collection of the best news photos.

According to me, a perfect news photo is the one which does not need a description line. The pictures you are about to see contain a story in themselves, text descriptions and stories won’t do any good to them.
These kind of photos are also called Documentary Photography.

Viewer Discretion: Some viewers may find these images disturbing.

    A rich harvest of ‘supreme’ examples of photojournalism. The pixs surely speak volume but as news images ,certainly not all will fit that description. You also need to know that without appropriate captions explaining the context of these images, viewers ,like me will still want to know about what we refer to as the 5W & H in Journalism. Good selection no doubt.

      Adeboye Ola!

      First of all, thanks for appreciation. It’s always nice to receive a comment from somebody who knows the subject.
      Let me re-describe my mind, these are the pics contain the quality that if we see one of them on a magazine cover, we get attracted towards it. These are the images that provoke us to know the 5W and 1H.
      Thanks for reminding my old days when I learned this 5W and 1H rule, nostalgia is taking of over me now… :)

      We are all hoping for peace.. That’s why we make such posts, to point towards the issue and tell that it’s wrong.

      thank you for the meaningful comment Cristine.
      Indeed that was the motive behind showcasing all these pictures, that a picture really does tell a thousand words.
