Dan Chung, a photographer and cameraman working for mastheads such as The Guardian, was quoted in 2012 as saying there was no future in photojournalism.
“That was probably the biggest misquote of my career!” Chung explains as we meet in Sydney. He is in town for a few days to deliver a talk on storytelling and photojournalism.
“What I actually said was photojournalism as a profession is pretty much dead. And I still believe that. If you think that you can leave college, go into a career as a photojournalist and live till you’re 65 and retire — that’s just never going to happen.”
