In an unprecedented move, the French newspaper Libération ran an entire issue without photos today, placing them instead in the back spread so people can see the art that’s missing. Its reason? It was trying to draw attention to the plight of photojournalists worldwide—timing the issue around Paris Photo, the world’s largest photography fair. “It’s not a wake, we’re not burying the photographic art […] Instead we give photography the homage it deserves,” the paper explains. “Yet, no one can ignore the calamitous situation press photographers now find themselves in, especially war photographers who risk their lives while barely making a living.”
