Read Article:
Early Documentary Photography
By: Department of Photography @
Metropolitan Museum of Art
* How do the Pictorialist photographers of the early 20th c. relate to contemporary documentary photographers?
* Pictoralism ended because of World War II. Are there any current events these photographers would've captured if still working?

Questions to Consider
* Do you Agree Photojournalism is Dead?
* Should Photojournalism capture the image, story, or emotion of a moment first?
Critique: How-To
1. Ask Questions
Ex: Why Did You Choose to Document This?
Ex: Who Are the People/Where Are You?
Ex: What Story Are You Trying to Tell?
2. Listen THEN Respond:
Let the Artist Finish Their Statement Before Asking Another Question, or Giving an Opinion
3. Give Opinion RESPECTFULLY
Do Not Talk Over One Another
If You Do Not Like Something, Be Constructive
If You Do Like Something Explain Why
