'Deadline' is a fascinating photo series -- put together by photographer Will Steacy -- that explores the scenes of decay and struggle at the Philadelphia Inquirer, a struggling newspaper. Journalism outlets in North America have been struggling to stay afloat in recent years, and this surprisingly poignant stories shows the newsroom bereft of the romance and charm that was once associated with the journalism field.

The photo series was also deeply personal for Will Steacy as his father worked for the Inquirer for decades. By capturing the confused and crumbling scenes of the newspaper's newsroom and printing plant, Steacy highlights how journalists and journalistic institutions committed to reportage face an uphill battle against large media corporations with more resources.
