Photojournalism as art

The national geographic photography guid says "Taking a photograph is one way to tell a story. Some photographs tell stories about specific moments in time, places, or events. Other photographs tell stories of a sequence of events." This is really the definition of photojournalism. Not only is the picture telling a story, it is also a picture of the events, a beautiful look into another world.

The photographer Linsey Addario is a photographer featured in the New York Times. The image featured here is both beautiful and a representation of the distress the citizens of Darfur are going through.
