Like any other branch of journalism, a photojournalist’s intent is to capture an image that conveys the the events represented in the image while evoking an emotional response that allows the viewer to connect with the content of the photo or news report to which the photo is attached. Under the umbrella of photojournalism, political photography is unique in that it is heavily swayed by public opinion. This project intends to introduce a duel perspective on visual sentiment in political photojournalism.
