Will Steacy | Deadline (newspaper)

20.00

Will Steacy spent five years photographing the newsroom and printing plant of The Philadelphia Inquirer. Through a depiction of The Inquirer's efforts to prevail despite shrinking advertising revenue, falling circulation, lay-offs, buy-outs, and bankruptcy, Steacy reveals the challenges and harsh realities that confront the newspaper industry today. Deadline is an 80-page newspaper featuring photographs of The Inquirer newsroom and press made between 2009-2013, along with images from The Inquirer's archive, and photographs, letters, news clips and other ephemera from Steacy’s own family’s five generation newspaper history.  The Deadline newspaper also features 70 original essays by current and former Inquirer newsroom staff (including 16 Pulitzer Prize winners!) discussing The Inquirer's history, the challenges and triumphs of working in today's newsroom environment and reflections on the future of newspapers and journalism.
