Photojournalism is the worst it's ever been. Nobody is doing anything. Today all the photographers are making setup shots, where you go in to shoot someone with a couple of assistants and a few stylists. Everyone does it. I do it. It's the ValueJet of photojournalism -stuck in the mud. In the end, those kinds of portraits mean nothing. They don't convey any information. The idea in that kind of photography is to make a picture the subject will like. That’s not journalism.
