Photojournalism (2): Elements of photojournalism, with videos

Elements of photojournalism (from Wikipedia)

(1) Timeliness — the images have meaning in the context of a recently published record of events.

(2) Objectivity — the situation implied by the images is a fair and accurate representation of the events they depict in both content and tone.

(3) Narrative — the images combine with other news elements to make facts relatable to the viewer or reader on a cultural level.
