Photojournalists explain that their profession has considerably evolved over the last decade.
Today, some of their greatest doubts concern the place of photography within the press; the difficulties of finding means to circulate documentaries and stories; and problems related to huge technical changes.
Many interviews of people who work in the world of press photography converge towards the idea that the profession is necessary in a society which values its spirit of democracy.
In this publication, portfolios are interspersed with texts and a major place is given to current events and historical photography. In the final pages of the book, practical information is given for both professionals and amateurs.
