Two exhibitions now showing at the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography offer a fascinating contrast in photojournalism.

“Press Photographers’ Story,” in the second-floor gallery through July 5, brings together the works of five well-known Japanese news photographers who were active from the 1930s to the early ’70s. Meanwhile, two flights down in the basement gallery, “World Press Photo ’09” presents 200 startlingly contemporary press photographs from all over the world, the latest winners in an annual competition.

In a time of both misinformation and too much information, quality journalism is more crucial than ever.
