Photography can show you the world as it is, could be, or the photographer’s vision. When it comes to photojournalism, the stakes are high. Photojournalists seek to capture the truth about political, social, humanitarian, or environmental circumstances and occurrences through poignant or iconic images.
As action and crisis can happen quickly, photojournalists might be placed in tumultuous settings during political events, warfare, or even amongst wild animals. While their skillset is clear to viewers of their stunning photographs, these are 7 of the most famous photojournalists you should start following on Instagram.
Michael Christopher Brown: https://instagram.com/michaelchristopherbrown/
Does warfare seem intimidating from your living room television or even just when talked about on the radio? Photojournalists like Brown document everything that most of us would avoid. Brown sustained an injury during the Libyan war, showing the extent of his dedication. Upheaval isn’t something he avoids, as he goes into the center of crises to show the world what is really happening.
Ben Lowy: https://instagram.com/dguttenfelder/
Ever heard of the SAVE DARFUR campaign? If not, you’ve at least heard of the Iraq or Afghanistan war. Lowy captured both of those wars in unforgettable ways, though his recent work is more domestic and focuses on big cities such as New York.
David Guttenfelder: https://instagram.com/dguttenfelder/
Guttenfelder has a resume of working for AP as their chief photographer in Asia. Believe it or not, he captures images through his iPhone (posted on his Instagram) and showcases the humanity of his subjects… even from complicated places such as North Korea.
Phil Moore: https://instagram.com/philmoorephoto/
Through Moore you will travel to East Africa and see a combination of loneliness to the beauty of rebuilding and hope found in war torn areas. The humanism of soldiers and their terrifying experience is also included in his work.
Ed Kashi: https://instagram.com/edkashi/
While filming a documentary, Kashi took incredible images from Nigeria and has extensive photography regarding social/ political upheaval and concerns. His images blend environment and subject.
Randy Olson: https://instagram.com/randyolson/
Olson’s stats as a photojournalist are made clear by his superlative work for the National Geographic. His photojournalism explores violence in Kenya but also shows the beauty and purity of people in places that differ from our first world viewpoint.
Marcus Bleasdale: https://instagram.com/marcusbleasdale/
In a world as complicated as this, Bleasdale knows that human rights matter. He has received awards and accolades, for his shooting of terrifying and memorable times. He has received notice for capturing the conflict in the Democratic Republic of Congo, showing its effects on everyone from child to adult.
