Photojournalism

First of all what photojournalism is a particular form of journalism that employs images in order to tell a news story. The purpose of photojournalism is to create pictures that contribute to the news media, and help communities connect with one other. Photojournalism is distinguished from other close branches of photography (for example documentary photography or celebrity photography) by complying with a rigid ethical framework which demands that the work be both honest and impartial whilst telling the story in strictly journalistic terms.People gather for the Women's March in Washington, January 21.

The photo above is an example of a photojournalistic photo. In the photo, you can see a lot of men and women that are protesting for women’s right, and you can tell that is the reason because they are protesting since they are wearing pink clothing items which symbolizes the women gender. The day they protested was on January 21st, and more than 500,000 men and women gathered on the National Mall for the “Women’s March on Washington” to protest the election of President Donald Trump. What i think is so great about this photo is that both women and men protested for the women´s right. That shows that men care as much for women´s rights as women do. The message it carries is that everyone should gather together to fight together, then it will be easier to be noticed by the people and the media.
