Nieman Reports;Spring2010, Vol. 64 Issue 1, p56
The article examines the approach of photojournalists to their job changes. It is noted that a captionless or sparsely captioned photograph is considered as a type of meta-news. The keyword has reportedly emerged as the new caption of photojournalism. One key development in cameras is the creation of the Frankencamera by scientists at Stanford University in California, which is expected to allow users to perform Photoshop-like functions. According to photographer Robert Frank, the humanity of the moment should be contained in the photograph.
