Today on Your Call: Why does photojournalism still matter?

On today’s Your Call, we'll speak with Ken Kobre about his new documentary Deadline Every Second. The film follows 12 top Associated Press photojournalists in eight countries as they cover war, political clashes, financial markets, natural disasters, sports and human-interest stories. Kobre says the film will change how you look at news images. What insights do you get from a photo? Join us at 10 or email feedback@yourcallradio.org. What's the last news photo you remember?
