Looking for an Icon (2007)
Critic Reviews for Looking for an Icon
The documentary provides an inside look at the dynamics of photojournalism that even I -- a longtime newsman -- found interesting.
Structured like a freewheeling crash course in media studies, Looking for an Icon offers close readings of four famous photographs, each a past winner of the World Press Photo of the Year.
Made to honor the 50th anniversary of the 'World Press Photo of the Year,' this documentary fails as both birthday present and theoretical inquiry.
This documentary about four World Press Photo contest winners defines icon to mean a still image so searing that it supplants memories of the event it was supposed to record.
