The new year is young, but we have already seen once again the power of the ‘still’ image to convey drama, a story and emotion.

The video footage of recent events in the US Captitol biulding was as important in telling the story.

But for me, those still images, regardless of what they were originally captured on, show that the medium remains as impactful as ever. They will resonate far into history I suspect.

It already has the feeling that we may be in for a memorable year for the news recording still image.
