"News photgraphy is dead!" But there is hope...

Per Folkver of the Danish daily newspaper Politiken said today at the 11th World Editors Forum that photojournalism must reinvent itself in order to survive the digital revolution. "News photography is dead," he claimed. "That exists on television," but not in newspapers any more. Photojournalism has to find its own role, Folkver said, "and then we will find that it is still powerful". In the future, Folkver advised, still photographs should be more beautiful than in the past, should make people think and they should ask questions instead of giving answers.
