THINK Publishing’s Glasgow team has bagged a guest-edit by Sir Harold Evans for its client, The Royal Photographic Society.
RPS Journal editor, Andrew Cattanach, worked with seminal editor Sir Harold Evans to create a press photography special for client, The Royal Photographic Society.
The February issue of The RPS Journal is guest-edited by Sir Harold, former editor of The Sunday Times, The Times and editor-at-large of Reuters.
Evans is widely regarded as one of the key proponents of photojournalism this century and his book, Pictures on a Page, is a best-selling guide to the best use of photography within the press. He is also a recipient of The Royal Photographic Society’s Hood medal.
The issue also carries specially-commissioned portraits of Evans, by Vanity Fair photographer, Jason Bell HonFRPS.
Evans spoke to The RPS Journal about how the rise in social media has stripped away at the budgets needed to send photographers to the places and events that we need to witness.
He said: “Social media algorithms and digital image manipulation are the mechanics by which lies and untruths are believed.
“But it’s not just about that. Social media sites take away the revenue that enabled newspapers to send photographers into far away places to get a good record of what’s happening. Sending a photographer to cover chemical bombing in Syria – that’s expensive.”
The only way to get a copy of this historic issue is to join The Royal Photographic Society.
