A look at the world of visual journalism

Many thanks to Northeastern staff photographer Mary Knox Merrill, who earlier today shared her knowledge and her experiences from working at the Christian Science Monitor and for Northeastern. Merrill showed us three presentations that combined still photography, video and audio.

You can find her multimedia portfolio here.

Please write a blog post of 300 to 350 words on Merrill’s presentation, including specific references (and links) to at least three examples of her work. What do you like about this form of visual journalism? Do you think it can tell a story as well as traditional newspaper journalism? Better? Differently?

Your blog post should be online before class on Tuesday.

From the copy desk: You wouldn’t necessarily know this, but her first name is Mary Knox and her last name is Merrill.
