Photojournalism; An Idea

Hello, internet! Photojournalism is a method of telling a story through photographs. One idea that interests me is photographing social injustice throughout the city of Tampa. One example would be a photo of a homeless person sitting in front of a large establishment with nothing but a few cents. Countless people walk by without batting an eye. In contrast, I could photograph a middle-class person walking with their family and their reactions and body language. My photographs can focus on the lack of sympathy shown through expressions. Another idea is the destruction of wildlife, specifically in Florida. I can show construction sites with housing developments being built on habitats. It is harmful to animals because they are being uprooted with no choice. Humans do not utilize their space properly. I’m excited to take photographs of things that interest me. I hope these topics inspire and promote change within our communities.
