LOUZADA, Silvana  and  MONTANA R, Cristina Kitty. Photojournalism in Brazilian's press transition. Signo pensam. [online]. 2006, n.48, pp.123-134. ISSN 0120-4823.

The paper deals with the relation between photojournalism and the modernization of Brazilian's press over the middle of the 20th Century. In this process, known as “reforms”, Río de Janeiro's newspapers suffer deep changes in language, such as the adaptation to organizational norms, writing and digging techniques used by the US press, and innovations in language inspired by the modernist movement. This article traces a short description of the reforms in three newspapers (Diário Carioca, Última Hora, and Jornal do Brasil) and discusses the process of changes in journalistic routines and the deontological codes of the profession, seeking clues in order to understand why the formation la the new generation of photographic reporters isn't related with, as happened with text journalists, specific formation such as training done in the newspapers, creation of university courses and the requirement of university diploma.

Keywords : photojournalism; reforms; objectivity; Brazilian press.
