Photojournalism is considered an extension or a branch of journalism. It is a supporting wing and is also a significant arm in news reporting today. In most cases, photojournalism is inseparable from reporting and analysis simply because journalists can use images to convey messages that otherwise may fail to have their intended impact.
Photojournalism is emerging as a field that is quite independent from journalism itself. There are journalists who focus majority of their time on images. An example of where this is seen most is in war reporting. Still images are able to convey strong messages and create an impact far greater than video footage can.
