Photoblogs tell the real story.
IN AN era where we have reason to be sceptical about the accuracy and honesty of global and mainstream news providers, it still rings true that photos don’t lie.
And if a photo tells a thousand words, there’s a lot of information online in the new breed of news service photoblogs.
An increasing number of newspapers are launching their own photoblogs both on their own websites and on photoblog social network, Tumblr.
With daily updates being uploaded by photo editors and photojournalists, it’s a visual way to seek your up- to- date news.
The daily dose of photographic inspiration can help you stay up to date with current news events happening around the world, without all the spin.
The New York Times has launched into the Tumblr social sphere with a new and whimsical photoblog connecting with readers who like a dose of intrigue with their inside story.
The Lively Morgue is the new blog, hosting black and white news images from the depths of the NY Times photo filing cabinets.
The paper’s physical photo morgue, as it’s labelled, is home to millions of pictures from the newspaper’s history.
