How did photojournalism get started/invented?
Photojournalism really started in Germany, in the 1920s. This is when the first photojournalism magazine was created. This was a modern newspaper for most, because not only did the reporter tell a story through word, but also through photos. However, in Germany, when Hitler came in power many of these magazines were banned. Photojournalists fled to the US. Soon photojournalism evolved into photojournalists covering wars. It began become more and more popular. Magazines such as Sports Illustrated, and Life magazine considered photojournalism a must.
