ABSTRACT
The article presents newspaper research on the racial and ethnic diversity presented in newspaper journalism, focusing on visual communication. Content analysis is offered on so-called stand-alone photographs, newspaper photography which is not linked to a specific article, but which portrays an example of everyday life in the community. Six U.S. newspapers were examined. It was found that the stand-alone photographs offered by those newspapers over a three-month period tended to portray a less ethnically diverse and more racially segregated community than existed in the actual populations of the newspapers' communities.
