Wall Street Journal Photo Blog Name Change

The Wall Street Journal changes the name of it’s photo blog from Big Picture to Photo Journal (here). Honestly I don’t think the name change was necessary but obviously you people are in charge now. Feels good doesn’t it.

  1. Surely this would have been to save it some face if not action, having so blatantly copied Alan Taylor’s original at boston.com?

  2. Their Director of Photography responds, in the Comments section of one post:


    Hello from the Wall Street Journal.

    We are excited by the attention our new “Photo Journal” has attracted from readers all over the world. In developing this feature, we were inspired by what others have done before us, particularly at http://www.boston.com/bigpicture/.

    Our title “Photo Journal” reflects the history of our paper and our new presence with photography both in the paper and on the web.

    We hope you enjoy.
