Photojournalism has captured world events hoping to have an effect on the consciousness of the society. The availability of billions of photographs from a plethora of sources, the devaluation of the journalist work, the transformation of the media as well as the social and political climate, however, cast doubt on its essential function.
Ritchin’s third book on the future of photography asks about the potential that the visual media still have left if images are to continue transforming our thinking and approach to the world.
