The package provides resources for teachers introducing the subject of journalism and press photography to their students. It offers students the opportunity to explore various aspects of visual communication.
The package deals with a number of questions related to the function of the press and the profession of a press photographer and photojournalist. If photojournalism aims to inform us about newsworthy events, then what is the definition of news? Why do we hear more about certain events, but less about others? How are press photographs made? Who determines which photos are published? What makes a good press photograph?
These packs can be downloaded free and are an invaluable resource for students visiting the Exhibition.
