Photojournalism

The news story I found covers Pakistan floods through photographs. I selected it because it shows how effective this type of journalism can be. A picture can be worth a thousand words and this is shown through this article. The nature of the article, showing devastation in Pakistan, is effectively shown through pictures. They are emotional images that description really couldn’t do justice. The captions along the bottom provide the little details necessary for readers to fully understand the image. It relates to the chapter because the chapter because the textbook encompasses all of these. It talks about the effectiveness of photographs, how important they are to news stories and how a skillful photographer can really capture emotion through the image.
