Summary An examination of some the current practices and dilemmas of photojournalism, particularly with regard to the documenting of pain and of otherness. This is looked at in the context of the death of the photo essay and the relegation of the photojournalist to that of a hunter/gatherer. In support of my argument of a current crissi of photojournalism I draw on some of my own practical experience and I include some of my images and captions with this paper.
