New York Times Photographer offers Journalism Tips

David Gonzalez of the New York Times recently visited a group of 8th grade American studies students at De La Salle Academy on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. As their final project in their News Literacy Project unit this spring, students examined social welfare issues through the camera lens, taking original photographs that spotlight topics ranging from housing to education to income disparities in their school’s neighborhood and the city at large. During his visit, Gonzalez reviewed students’ photographs and shared how the standards of journalism are applied to stories told through the medium of photography.
