The Los Angeles Times’ mission is to inform, engage and inspire people through its high-quality journalism and compelling storytelling. Moreover, Canon’s corporate philosophy of Kyosei—all people, regardless of race, religion, or culture, harmoniously living and working together into the future—complements that mission. In addition, it forms the basis of a partnership that will support visual storytelling that originates in California and resonates around the world.

“The Los Angeles Times has a long and distinguished history of visual journalism. Canon’s cameras have been an invaluable tool for our news photographers for generations,” said Chris Argentieri, president and COO of the Los Angeles Times.

“Our partnership with Canon will allow us to outfit our staff with best-in-class imaging equipment as well as expand on the range of visual journalism and storytelling we produce.”
