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.
