Photojournalism is judged on the following main elements which creates images in order to tell a news story.

Timeless – the images have meaning in the context of recently published record of events.

Objectivity – the situation implied by the images is a fair and accurate representation of the events they depict in both content and tone.

Narrative – the images combine with other news elements to make facts relatable to the viewer or reader on a cultural level.

Flash photography was invented in the late 19th century and with the famous New York Times publishing pictures for the first time and give them the benefit to photograph subjects indoors, photographing became the main stay of newspapers and magazines over the next century and this turned into a credible profession.

After pcitures of so many wars, the public began to demnand more aspirational lifestyle pictures as this would sell many magazines and make huge profits, the sight of war however noble did not sell magazines.
