Fotojornalistas apresentam o mapa da pobreza nos EUA

Posted in Photojournalism by picturedesk on 12/07/2009

Um grupo de fotógrafos norteamericanos desenvolve o projeto multimidia American Poverty com belos ensaios e o mapa da pobreza nos Estados Unidos. Capitaneados por Steve Liss veterano da revista Time, o coletivo ‘In Our Own Backyard’ se aproveita muito bem das novas narrativas jornalísticas e das redes sociais ao publicar estes ensaios na internet. É mais uma prova de que a plataforma web é muito mal aproveitada pelos jornais brasileiros e atualmente um dos melhores lugares para se publicar fotos de maneira inteligente.

In Our Own Backyard is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization of photojournalists committed to the cause of social reform in the United States. Our inaugural project, AmericanPoverty.org is a multimedia examination of the daily struggles of impoverished Americans: a comprehensive and innovative campaign that will affect the way the general public and policymakers think about poverty in America. We believe that increasing awareness about poverty is a critical prelude to building support for initiatives, like the Harlem Children’s Zone, that can create lasting impact in the lives of disadvantaged people. Visual story-telling is unique in its power to achieve that awareness.
