This category covers all photography which documents events and records them, or which is used to tell a story. Sometimes the camera captures events as they occur, to be published as news. In other cases, it documents an ongoing condition or situation for public awareness. Exploring this area on the Web will lead you to examples of work by famous photojournalists such as Alfred Eisenstadt. You can also see how photography is being used to visually describe the plight of the homeless.
