The London Photographers’ branch committee would like to applaud the recent stand Larry Price, Pulitzer winning photojournalist has made against job losses.

Larry resigned as picture editor at the Dayton Daily News in Ohio this week after being told that up to four people would be cut from his nine staff photographers.
