This book shows that contemporary approaches to picture based
journalism can be traced back through unbroken lines of development
from the pioneering work of Stefan Lorant seventy years ago,
drawing along the way upon the inspiration of Lorant, his
contemporaries and those who followed him. Lorant's legacy
continues to influence institutions and individuals alike. As
Steven Heller observed, 'There is no telling what photojournalism
would be like today if it wasn't for Lorant's efforts.' The
influence and legacy of Lorant's picture based journalism and
Picture Post in particular have permeated magazines of the time
including Life and Look magazines, more recently the colour
supplements such as The Sunday Times Magazine as well as Town and
Queen. Overall his contribution to 'the creative use of actuality'
has changed the way we see the social landscape in such celebrity
magazines such as OK and Hello and the television documentary from
the early BBC Tonight programmes through to Panorama. New analysis,
interpretations, linkages and extended time spans provide
considered conclusions of particular interest to those involved
with photography, media and communication.
