1944, from photo- + journalism. Related: Photojournalist.


n. A form of journalism in which a story is told primarily through photographs and other images


n. journalism that presents a story primarily through the use of pictures


Photojournalism is a particular form of journalism (the collecting, editing, and presenting of news material for publication or broadcast) that employs images in order to tell a news story. It is now usually understood to refer only to still images, but in some cases the term also refers to video used in broadcast journalism. Photojournalism is distinguished from other close branches of photography (e.g., documentary photography, social documentary photography, street 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. Photojournalists create pictures that contribute to the news media.

Timeliness: The images have meaning in the context of a recently published record of events. Objectivity: The situation implied by the images is a fair and accurate representation of the events they depict in both content and tone. Narrative: The images combine with other news elements to make facts relatable to the viewer or reader on a cultural level.
