Jacob Riis is considered to be one of the founders of photojournalism. In Riis’ lifetime, photojournalism was an emerging type of journalism that incorporated the new technology of photographs to tell stories. Riis used photojournalism to show the public images of the poverty tenement dwellers endured. He took photographs of every aspect of life in the slums, from the dark and dirty alleys to the everyday lives of children. Riis hoped that his photographs would have an impact on public opinion and incite social reform in New York City. Get That Picture! is a book that details the experience of news cameramen and other photographers.
