Her hjemme har riktignok avisenes magasiner holdt tradisjoen noenlunde i hevd. Sist med Dagnes Næringslivs satsing på D2. Samtidig er interessen laber når verdens fremste fotojournalister holder stevne i Oslo.
Spørsmålet om fotojournalistikkens fremtid drøftes i The Sydney Morning Herald:
Because photographs are viewed in the present, unlike fleeting moments of television that can pass by at such a rapid rate we might barely notice them, the still image can invite you to stop and to interpret and to think and to decide.
Television doesn’t allow you this independence. By the time you notice something worth pondering over it’s serving up the next sequence for you to absorb or miss.
Still pictures capture peak action in a way TV could never do. And ironically through the silence of the photograph, they can impart subtleties that electronic media cannot.
Could these strengths alone secure photojournalism a home on digital platforms which are now capable of delivering high-quality video, while at the same time leaning towards more shallow stories?
