It's Called Evolution
So is photojournalism dead? Not by me. I see it everyday in the Los Angeles Times, my local regional newspaper.
It's not dead it's just evolving using different methods for distribution, mainly the Web. If we as photographers cannot adopt then we die. Yes funding is a big problem but the plus of lack of money is a freedom to do your own work and not what the owners of the large old school newspapers and magazines want. Yes it's difficult but the rewards are great.
Here are three articles on the state of photojournalism and documentary photography. I suggest you read them in the order presented.
