Some of the picture stories published under the  ‘BBC Stories’ banner are to my mind filling the gap left following the demise of print-based photojournalism such as the old Picture Post or the in-depth coverage of the Sunday colour supplements in their early days.
They are providing a much-needed outlet for good reportage photography.

Created using software called ‘Shorthand‘, which is capable of producing a linear picture story comprising images, text and video in a scrolling single screen layout, they replicate turning the pages of a print publication in this digital age.

Easy to navigate, easy to read, and capable of displaying still photographs in a documentary fashion that echoes some of the great printed photo-stories of the past.
