Patrick Galibert is a professional photographer based in Toulouse France. His photography will definitely touch your heart, and give you glimpses of how people in other countries try to make their living. It’s always astonishing how many things we take for granted, how many pointless things makes us feel unhappy, and how much differently we could perceive the world if we had just been born in a different place.
Since today we are discussing photo journalism for the first time, let’s also see a short definition about it as well.
Photo journalism is a particular form of journalism (the collecting, editing, and presenting of news material for publication or broadcast) that creates images in order to tell a news story. It is now usually understood to refer only to still images, but in some cases the term also refers to video used in broadcast journalism.
Photojournalism is distinguished from other close branches of photography (i.e., documentary photography, social documentary photography, street photographyor celebrity photography) by complying with a rigid ethical framework which demands that the work is both honest and impartial whilst telling the story in strictly journalistic terms. Photojournalists create pictures that contribute to the news media.
