French daily strips its pictures out to highlight need for real photography

French newspaper Libération recently replaced all the pictures of its Nov 14 edition with white space to illustrate just how important good photography is at a time when everyone is taking pictures. As the paper explained, ‘To choose Paris Photo’s opening day to ‘install’ these white images highlights our commitment to photography. It’s not a wake, we’re not burying the photographic art… Instead we give photography the homage it deserves.’
