The events of recent years, from 9/11 to the Japanese earthquake and tsunami disaster, have once again shown that photography remains the ideal tool for capturing human emotion, drama, and tragedy. Photojournalism presents the extraordinary history of this indispensable means of reporting. Starting with some of the first key figures, such as Roger Fenton, who photographed the Crimean War with a bulky large-format camera, it moves through the decades, from the Great Depression to space missions, the dismantling of the Berlin Wall, and the war in Iraq--all illustrated with stirring images from the world's greatest photojournalists.
