Photos
Photojournalism is not, by reputation, the province of artists. According to professional lore, news photographers are romantic daredevils or world-weary cynics or pals of the powerful. If there is art in their work, it is often the artistry of the audacious, the well-informed or the well-connected. The art of Carol Guzy's photojournalism, exhibited in these eight photo galleries, is different and deeper, and it goes beyond even her evident aesthetic skills.
