591 Reportage - Ann Johansson











What about the reportage, the documentary photography of the 21st century? Of course I don´t have the answer, but I am curious about it. So let us find out, let us explore and discuss it!

Seeing Ann Johansson's pictures from the race for the White House is interesting, even now that we know the outcome. I think about the picture where one of the candidates
(Mitt Romney)
is introduced by his wife and the rest of the family - intriguing. Another favourite is the one with McCain shot from behind - him facing the flag. Somehow it is obvioust already at this stage that he cannot win the race.

"The Race" present us with some moments and hopeful candidates during the campaign leading up to the historic victory of Barack Obama.

Right now Ann is in West Africa making a reportage. I hope to see some more pictures by Ann on 591 when she is back.

The best kind of reportage photos, each photo says so much, not needing words to explain them...excellent work!

I'm happy to see these shots here.
This set the highest standards for 591!

IMO, Hillary' sign carried away (and I remember I saw this shot the same day she got out of the competition) is simply exilarating.

Photos that speak out loud, good documentary, hope to see more here!
Fantastic reportage, graet to see the "foot work" the cantidates have to make! The picture of Barack Obama and Stevie Wonder is just wonderful.
