Photojournalism in the web

Hey all

I was wondering if some one knows where to get information like recent history, facts, multi media pages, etc., etc. on photojournalism in the web.
Any help, guidance would be highly appreciated.

You might be a little more specific, Carlos. Obviously there is a lot of pj on the Web, in all kinds of Web sites that convey information, from agencies (like VII – www.viiphoto.com), or specific Web-based “’zines” – like VII The Magazine – http://magazine.viiphoto.com/ – or Magnum in Motion – http://inmotion.magnumphotos.com/ – or 100eyes – http://www.100eyes.org/.

There’s a lot. Just gotta look around….

hey Neal / all…if I may – just emailed with Carlos. The question (which I didn’t understand right away either) is actually quite a good, and under explored one I think. Hopefully I am stating it correctly:

What is the history of the presence of photojournalism on the web? Since the 80’s or so, what has been the course of dissemination of photojournalism online? Who first embarked on creating a strong pj presence on the internet, etc. and at what point did online pj proliferate to the point of it being commonplace? What facts, trends, history of this emergence and growth are documented and where can he find the info?

(This is not so much a direct discussion of the supposed “death” of pj, the impact of citizen journalism, etc. – more of a timeline of the history of photojournalism on the web supported by facts. Imagine having to explain this course of history, accurately, to a group of youngins’ who have only ever known things more or less as they are now; what really happened, and when? )

Hope this helps Carlos, and that I accurately reflected your question..

Erica and Neal thanks so much. I guess I am walking into a big jam. But when I proposed it seemed interesting, since there’s no much info but just the facts like web pages or online mags…thanks again

Just let me add a little note about the Italian anomaly, hence I am Italian: a recent law is being duscussed and probably approved that will forbid “non professional” journalists (i.e. citizen journalists, practitioners, free lance etc.) to publish any material at all and investigate too.
It’s an attempt to gag the information system, hence most of the journalists active in Italy are just free lance.
I have written a little post on my blog:
The video is the plea of one of the most relevant figures on public television requesting the intervention of the audience against such plot called “the Gag Law” for it’s intent of silencing all the independent opinions even those available through the internet, blogs etc.
