Challenge has finished
Photojournalism captures newsworthy images. The photographs for this challenge ought to be timely, objective, and ought to tell a story. 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.
