Images on the web have been a hot topic over the last few years with responsive solutions playing the biggest part.
But what about the form itself? Do we present photography with the respect and intention of the photographer?
I'll be talking about the art of story telling through photography by the masters in their field such as Garry Winigrand, Nan Goldin, Nick Ut, and ultimately asking the question - how did they want their images presented to the viewer.
Does the web give enough emphasis to photography as a medium, whether in an artistic or journalistic form? We'll look at the best in breed across the domains to see how photo journalism on the web is treated and where it is heading. Could we be verging on the era of 'snowfall' becoming the saturated method for showing high quality imagery?
Flickr has had a huge impact on photography since its launch and has aided millions of users to become better photographers and story tellers in the same way that instagram has brought the culture of instant and polaroid shooting to a new generation. But are we losing the focus with cluttered interfaces and lightboxes?
