One of the leading uses of photography by the mass media came to be called photojournalism. From the late ‘twenties’ to the early ‘fifties’ what might have been the golden age of this speciality photographers worked largely as the possessors of special and arcane skills like the ancient priests who practiced and monopolized the skills of pictography or carving or manuscript illumination. In those halcyon days the photographer enjoyed a privileged status. – John Szarkowski – Aperture 13 March 1967 [cited in: Creative Camera January 1975 p. 4]
