IMPACT OF PHOTOGRAPHS IN NEWSPAPER REPORTAGE OF BOMB BLASTS

Abstract

The study examined the impact of Photographs in Newspaper reportage of bomb blasts. However, it is obvious that photographs play a very prominent role in the newspaper and the world of print media in general. It communicates messages even to the illiterates. Quantitative survey research method was adopted in which questionnaire was used as data collection instrument. Findings have shown that a newspaper without the use of photographs will be nothing but look like a letter or textbook and such publication cannot interest readers. Also, photographs draw the attention of the reader to the most prominent news and issue, especially when placed at the front page of a newspaper while placement of photo is used to set agenda on what public will debate upon. It is recommended that print media should always use only the important photo that communicates the message in which the photo represents, and not just use any photo.
