News Stories in Photographs–Big Photographs

Posted on: 30 June 2008

If you haven’t seen it yet, you may want to check out the work of Alan Taylor. Alan posts photos for the Boston Globe on a place called The Big Picture.

The Big Picture is a photo blog for the Boston Globe/boston.com, compiled semi-regularly by Alan Taylor. Inspired by publications like Life Magazine (of old), National Geographic, and online experiences like MSNBC.com’s Picture Stories galleries and Brian Storm’s MediaStorm, The Big Picture is intended to highlight high-quality, amazing imagery – with a focus on current events, lesser-known stories and, well, just about anything that comes across the wire that looks really interesting.

I found The Big Picture by accident and have bookmarked it. I found many of the photos to be very good examples of photojournalism. It is true a picture can say a thousand words. These photos are of real people with real lives and have real stories to tell. There are any number of emotions behind the stories and due to the size of the photographs the photos have a tendency to “come alive.”
