The Wider Image: New World of Storytelling

With sponsorship from Canon, The Wider Image app offers an interactive experience from Reuters by using a selection of some of the best photographs gathered by news agencies around the world. I personally believe that photojournalism continues to have the greatest impact of any medium to tell a story because it has the power to make people stop and take notice of issues that they wouldn't otherwise pay attention to.

The app was created exclusively for the iPad and it's completely transformed the way in which I now view news photography. I love the Behind the Scenes section where one gets a closer glimpse of the individuals behind the lens.

Navesh Chitrakar is a Nepal-based photographer and there's a statement on his profile that I can't help relate to: "My camera made me the person I am today. I never get tired of taking pictures."
