Chapnick offers a substantial overview of photojournalism, including its history, professional responsibilities, and standards of conduct as well as examples of great photographic essays. He also discusses women and minorities in photojournalism, provides information on workshops, awards, and grants available in the field, and offers an abundance of cogent advice to those entering the field. As his title suggests, Chapnick argues for maintaining the highest ethical standards in this critical profession. At a time when we are flooded with the artificial glitz of advertising photography, it is refreshing to find a book that champions the strength of the photograph as document and as agent for positive social change. Essential for all academic libraries, especially those supporting journalism programs; public libraries wishing to provide good, in-depth information about photojournalism will also want to consider this book.
