The Sunday Times Pays Tribute To The Power Of Photography

Released this past weekend, Britain's Sunday Times Magazine pays tribute to some of the most iconic and powerful photos from the last century in a short video they've entitled "Photojournalism." The simple two minute video creatively adds motion to the images, in an attempt to bring back the feelings and emotion the photographers were facing during the time these powerful images were captured.

 

Sit back and enjoy the 2 minute video above to get your daily dose of warm fuzzies highlighting the power of photography throughout history and today.

This is all part of a promotional project that The Sunday Times is putting out to help promote photography and photojournalism in a time where photojournalism is facing layoffs and budget cuts in the print journalism world.

I get whey they did the 2.5D effect, to make the images a little more "interesting"....which is kinda ironic, b/c honestly i'd rather see the ACTUAL photo, un-touch, no motion, just show me the photo. Being that these images are "so powerful", they pretty much speak for themselves, and don't need the After Effects treatment....

Past weekend*

Proofreading, on Fstoppers? What's that?

The basis of Photojournalism is that the images should not be altered in a way. They just bend the rules. Can we ever trust reading their newspaper ever again????

I'm glad someone used that 2.5D effect to set some pictures that obviously moved them to some ponderous music. This is photography school stuff-"yeah-put the caption in the picture-it'll be so sick!"
A tribute to photojournalism? Attempt to bring back the feeling of the moment? Some one takin' the p*ss here or what?
