Best Answer

Pictorial essays, also called photo essays, tell a story through photographs and text. The text typically has a journalistic feel and helps tell the story, but the primary locus of the pictorial essay is the photographs themselves. A pictorial essay typically has a title and focuses around a single theme, whether it is a subject such as war, or a pictorial essay about a particular state. Pictorial essays are often personal and can be an effective way for you to create a personal message to share with family, friends or even for publication.
