Essayist

Photo Essay: A collection of pictures on a single theme, arranged to convey a mood, deliver information, tell a story, in a way that one picture alone cannot. Selection and arrangement are all-important. A successful photo essay is always greater than the sum of its parts. It has a life of its own. It says more, has a greater impact than any single picture in it.
