A picture is a worth a thousand words, but often photojournalists don't get credit for the work they do. Photos turned the tide in the Vietnam War & galvanized support for the civil rights movement.

Here's a look at photojournalists covering the immigration crisis.

(1) @jbmoorephoto (Getty) is one of the most visible and he's covered immigration extensively in Central & Southern America for over a decade. Recently, he traveled the entire length of the US Southern border to document the journey of migrants.…
(2) Meet @HerikaMartinez7 who has also produced powerful images of the immigration crisis for Getty. Just a stroll through her portfolio will leave you in tears. Her photos of deported veterans & children have gained national attention.…
(3) Jorge Duenes, a photographer based in Tijuana, has captured extraordinary images from the southern border for Reuters. As early as 2013, Jorge was documenting the struggles of immigration in a series called The Great Divide.…
(4) @MonitorDelcia is a photojournalist from Texas. She's worked over 37 years as a photographer documenting news and events along the US Southern border for various news agencies including AP, NBC News, and more.
(5) @fotografolara along with colleagues Bob Owen and Lisa Krantz were nominated for the Pulitzer for “chilling photographs that document the hard road Central American migrants must follow to seek refuge in the United States.”…

Come back next week and put your two cents in for what we should cover next.
