Journal Feature: foto8 and Ei8ht


foto8, the online journal of international, award-winning documentary photography, has been exploring new ways of storytelling since 1998. It “believes that photojournalism performs an essential role in modern society” and is “a valuable tool of communication as well as a vital part of educating ourselves about the lives of others which are often distant from our own. ” My favorite photo essay currently on the site is called Car Park by Astrid Schulz. A close second: Remains of the Journey by Francesca Phillips. Photo8 also produces the quarterly magazine of photojournalism, Ei8ht, now available at the ASC Library.
