World Press Photo
June 2005 | Edition One     


Starting a new career can be daunting and there are always more questions than answers.

Even when one becomes reasonably established, practical, ethical and business issues often remain.

And so, in each issue of Enter, photojournalists from all over the world will be given the chance to ask an expert of their choice about something that has been on their mind.

First is Maja Janevska, a photographer from Macedonia, who took part in World Press Photo seminars between 2001 and 2004 and is keen to know about copyright. Shahidul Alam provides the answer.

Then Bevis Fusha, a photographer from Tirana in Albania, wants to know about magazines' use of photography on covers. He asks Kathy Ryan, photo editor of The New York Times Magazine.

Emmanuel Daou Bakary, a photographer from Mali, wonders whether there is such a thing as African photography and, if so, how does it differ from other photographic styles? Mark Sealy, director Autograph-ABP from the UK, provides answers.

If you would like to put a question to an expert, please send it - with the name of the expert - by clicking here. Please make the question brief. We will choose three every issue and do our best to invite your expert to answer.
