Photojournalism: News stories — three good and one bad

This photo from The Seattle Times was taken for a recent story about a man that’s living under the 520 bridge. I find it intriguing because the viewer gets a sense of the man’s living conditions, as well as a really interesting view of being underneath the bridge.

Next up, a story from The New York Times about a Baltimore politician that recently died. The photo drew me to the story in the first place. It’s such a great perspective.

 A third great news story photo is this shot from Lucas Anderson, a photographer at The Daily, taken for a story about the annual American Indian Student Commission’s powwow. It probably gave us our best front page of last quarter. I love the lighting.

And last is this photo from the Western Washington University student newspaper, The Western Front, involving their student government presidential candidate debate. Yuck, I just can’t find anything appealing about it at all.

    regarding the last photo: “Yuck, I just can’t find anything appealing about it at all.”

    what about the fact that the third person from the right looks like jim from “the office” john krasminski or whatever. that’s something appealing.
