Photojournalism

 

the reportage of current events through photographs appearing in newspapers, in magazines, and on special bulletin boards, such as those of PHOTO TASS. In contrast to the documentary art of photography, photojournalism often makes use of photographs that lack aesthetic value; the pictures are chosen primarily on the basis of their historical and cognitive merits.
