Ten Great Photojournalism Websites
The following websites are well known for their photo essays or photo news sections. I will likely be referring to these sites often during my web curation.
Photo District News: This is the website for the photo magazine Photo District News. Not all of the news on this site is related to photojournalism, a great deal of it has to do with art photography. Regardless, the news section reports on any big news within the photojournalism industry.
Burn Magazine: This was created by a photographer from one of the largest photojournalism angencies in the world, Magnum. This online magazine is a photoblog for emerging photojournalists. It puts up the best photo stories by people just starting out in the industry.
