From Above, World Press Photo.

What I find interesting about this narrative is not that it tells a story, that it intends to teach and inspire. There are no opinions, just facts and different ways of doing things. It provides information about the past, including photographs to accompany the photographers and techniques being addressed.

screenshot-93Although the lay out, presented as a news story instead of a documentary, isn’t aligned in a viewer-friendly way. The images to not sit along side the text that it is linked too, although it is there. Small things like this can throw a viewer off very easily. It is nice to look at a project that isn’t documenting something highly touching or artistic, which allows you to really look and learn about the techniques used. I feel this piece does it very well, with large headers and short chunks of text, the only downfall is the image to picture alignment.
