Remember photojournalism?
big hair?

This great video from 1978 by Behnam Attar about Contact Press Images and David Burnett’s story on the last cattle drive in America reveals how magazine photo-j used to be. Big spreads, lots of pages, artists’ chasing stories for fame and glory and making a living.

David Burnett is still taking great pictures, chasing great stories, still shooting with his endless enthusiasm and original perspective, but with a bit less hair.
