Photojournalism is dead?

Yes, every once in a while I start to think that photojournalism is dead. Because, as everyone knows, journalism is dead; because the Globe & Mail, for one, often fails to caption photos on its website; because, well, lots of people say that photojournalism is dead.

But, looking at Craig F. Walker’s Pulitzer-winning story, “Ian Fisher — American Soldier,” I have to say that photojournalism seems to be alive and kicking. And a big part of the reason for that is the Internet, the very force responsible for photojournalism’s purported demise, which has given us new ways to present stories with greater depth and context than ever before.
