Specialist Notes

“Photo commentary is a way of expressing yourself more with images than with words, images can be sculpted, drawn or photographed, the medium does not count. The modern editorial urgency has transformed the caveman's chisel into a camera. Once to know the story described on the Trajan column everyone had to go to Rome. Today that column has become a press cylinder and the farthest reader can receive a copy of it at home. ” (pp. 4-5).
