Newspapers should think retro

Posted on | May 14, 2008 | No Comments

Everyone is a photographer now. They’re everywhere, in living color.
Wild thought: Maybe newspapers should revert to black and white photography. Saves money. It’s retro and it prints more consistently and looks a lot better in newsprint than color. Virtually every picture you see in the paper today you’ve already seen somewhere. You don’t see a lot of black and white, and black and white remains a photographer’s Holy Grail. The photo at left is from the National Press Photographers Association’s Best Photojournalism of the Year contest.
