On 'No Future in Photojournalism' Interview: Dan Chung article (278 comments in total)

I think it is irresponsible for the authors at DPreview, in using this title, to equate the views of Mr. Chung with the practice at large. Mr. Chung fails to make any serious arguments challenging the journalistic or artistic importance of (stills) photojournalism, merely his own ability to make a living out of it. Therefore his view in my opinion sullies the large number of people around the world who are putting their lives at risk everyday to visually inform us about the planet's state of affairs.

Perhaps a better title for this piece would have been "Dan Chung: No future in photojournalism FOR ME". Maybe in the future, when Mr. Chung realizes he no longer has the talent, desire, or ability to shoot in the documentary, advertising or narrative industries, he will come back and try to convince us that there is no value in capturing moving images either.
