Photojournalists deserve the utmost respect. They are both the most revered and the most hated of all photographers. And yet they carry on. But they are the risk takers. They are the ones who will risk life and limb to get a shot that documents history, culture and news. Where my shooting locations are the city or a subway, photojournalists shoot in wars, among the ill and deprived and witness some of humans darkest moments. Before the internet, up-and-coming photojournalists only had audiences of small town newspapers – and that’s assuming their work was published.
Thanks to the internet, smaller sources (websites) are now able to appeal to much larger audiences and the demand for photojournalism is growing. But even still, few sources focus on the photography itself. At least that was the case. Because along came We Say. We Say is a photo-centric news site. Popular stories and headliners are not necessarily the hottest news nor is it always going to be national level news. Sometimes, the headline story is simply about a picnic at a retirement home or highlights from a Euro Football game. But I can guarantee that there will not be a shortage of stunning photos and good writing. But it’s really all about the photos.
