Abstract: This thesis centers on a series of photojournalism workshops held in India by the Dutch NGO World Press Photo (hereafter WPP). My analytical lens combines contributions from the anthropology of the image and the anthropology of newsmedia while staying sensitive to issues of power. WPP is a proponent of the sociodocumentary aesthetic that developped in 20th century western photography – linking the truth claim proposed by mechanical objectivity with the sensible force of the subjective eye in a reformist impulse – and was proposed to Indian photographers at the turn of the 21th century. Most were eager to adopt WPP's proposed vision of photography, while some had a slight resistance to it, prefering to link their practice to a national Indian tradition. This split loosely followed generational lines, both sets of photojournalists projected themselves into differents areas – global and local – while articulating their practice to a heightened individuality.
