Adam an Ollie on the state of photojournalism.

Two gentleman who shot the latest adidas originals campaign for us, Adam & Ollie, were judges in the latest World Press Photo contest. They have written a long and very interesting article about it. This is the first time I have seen an article giving insight in the workings of the Jury. I know the organization quite well as I started my working life there and I guess they won't be too happy. However I think they should be thanking these guys, for an organization which states: "Our mission is to encourage high professional standards in photojournalism and to promote a free and unrestricted exchange of information." they are too secretive about what goes on inside, they should embrase this chance to discuss the future of press photography in the rapidly changing world of communication. Read the entire essay on photo8.
