Amateur Photographer: Photojournalism in the age of social media

Amateur Photographer: Photojournalism in the age of social media. “Canon’s current tag line is ‘Live for the Story’, and there could be no better expression of that sentiment than through the company’s 26-year sponsorship of World Press Photo, the Oscars of photographic journalism.
