Tracing Changes in the field of Photojournalism – The Swedish field

2015 (English)Conference paper, Oral presentation only (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

Photojournalism might be the media practice experiencing the fastest technical,normative and ideological change in the field of journalism today. At the same time,photojournalism practitioners seem to have become the proverbial canary-bird in themedia, as staff photographers are laid-off and photo departments in both Swedish andinternational newspapers have been diminished or even closed down. Yet hitherto,much of the scholarly in-depth research on the on-going changes in journalism hasfocused on changes in journalist’s practice, norms and ideals. Thus, this pilot study willtry to identify which photojournalistic routines, values, norms, and ideals might still bein use and examine how and if they have changed within the evolving field ofjournalism. Trying to fulfil this aim, a series of semi-structured interviews with in totalsix photojournalists where conducted, in addition to two mail interviews based on theinterview questions and a one-day participant observation with a collective of Swedishfreelance photojournalists in photo agency.The findings were later categorized to facilitate a deeper understanding, studied throughBourdieu’s sociological concepts, to identify the field’s different structures, struggles andideologies.
