You are capturing a specific subject in a straightforward manner that tells a story. Photojournalism became popular in the 1880s, when newspaper presses could reproduce halftone images. The 'Golden Age' of photojournalism started in the 1930s after the invention of the compact Leica camera and flashbulbs; it attracted some of the finest photographers of the generation. Glossy, quality, high-circulation magazines such as 'Life' and 'Look' featured photojournalism at its best. Famous photojournalists include Carol Szathmari, Matthew Brady, Jacob Riis, Robert Capa, Alfred Eisenstaedt, Margaret Bourke-White, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Dorothea Lange, Luc Delahaye, Zoriah Miller, and Manuel Rivera-Ortiz.

Taken at the Muslim quarter of the old city of Jerusalem on "Eid Al Fiter" (the last day of the Ramadan). This day is generally considered a day of wrath against the Israeli occupation. Being Jewish and walking around in the Muslim quarter felt a bit scary and random incidents are know to happen from time to time. This pictures illustrates best the misguidance of young boys that starts in preaching rooms at school and is taken out to the streets. Some are being raised to believe terror and suicide bombings are the best and only way to prove their loyalty to god and to their family/society.
