As it's #WorldPhotographyDay let's look back at the 1930s magazine that was a trailblazer for modern photo-led #journalism: VU.
First published in Paris in 1928 VU was a magazine that put the photograph first. Over 3,000 photos were used in its first year of publication alone.

In June 2018, the Portland @ICEgov office was under siege by hundreds of angry occupiers. They blocked & guarded all the building's exits. Portland Police & Mayor @tedwheeler refused to help the trapped workers who pled for help. #AndyNgoPhotos wsj.com/articles/anarc…
