The Chicago Sun Times laid off its entire photography staff, last week, sending 28 people out the door. The plan, the paper says, is to train reporters to take pictures and videos on iPhones while they talk to sources. No photographers required.
Among those who lost their jobs is John H. White. He won a Pulitzer back in 1982. He was there taking pictures when Nelson Mandela got out of prison. He’s shot Pope John Paul II, President Obama, and a whole range of regular people in Chicago over the years.
