Revisit: ‘Lament for a Dying Field: Photojournalism’

Interesting article via The New York Times regarding the oft-discussed state of photojournalism. (Aren’t they all nowadays?)

“Newspapers and magazines are cutting back sharply on picture budgets or going out of business altogether, and television stations have cut back on news coverage in favor of less-costly fare. Pictures and video snapped by amateurs on cellphones are posted to Web sites minutes after events have occurred. Photographers trying to make a living from shooting the news call it a crisis.”
