Photographs, Sound, and Story: How “New” Newspapers Are Reviving the “Old” Photo Essay

There  are  many  recent examples I could have chosen  of the new look of newspapers,   but check out the  what  the  New York Times is doing with stories,  sound, and beautiful still  photography.

If,  like me,   you  think that still  photography  is a revealing and sometimes even profound way to tell a story,  I’m  curious what you think.  Some of these  photographs are  amazing  character  studies which  magnify and empahasize the qualities of the subject. 

The photographic essay is alive and well on-line. 

Use good headphones.   Someone did some fine sound work. 

Weegee?   Maybe not.  But darn good.
