The creed of cinema journalism can be best illustrated with another portmanteau word ‘photography’ and ‘journalism’ as photojournalism.

A photographer takes pictures of nouns (people, places and things)... Photojournalists capture “verbs,” says Photojournalist Mark M. Hancock. The story lies in movement, internally or externally. This too is an essence of cinema journalism — a craft skill that merges cinema and journalism.

Over the weekend my nephew invited me to his wedding. His story is quite remarkable and inspiring, which frankly merits movie treatment. It’s boy meets girl; she a teacher, he is finding his calling from the rough and tumble of London’s streets before settling on youth work and then theology.

Whilst a professional photographer was at work, I casually thought I’d share their story.
