Press photography

By John MacLean, 15/11/13:

 

French newspaper Libération removes all photographs from its 14th November issue to highlight both the value of images and the precarious state of professional press photography.

“A visual shock. For the first time in its history, Libération is published without photographs. In their place: a series of empty frames that create a form of silence; an uncomfortable one. It’s noticeable, information is missing, as if we had become a mute newspaper.”
