Misery Is Photogenic
Posted on 3/24/2011 by Jim Pickerell | Printable Version |
One of the themes that emerged at the “La Fotografia In Italia” photojournalism conference
in Milan last weekend was that the majority of feature stories photojournalists produce deal with tragedies. Some of the editors expressed the opinion that they were tired of seeing so much tragedy and were looking for something more positive and uplifting. A few photographers responded that they are just producing what the market asks for. Someone said that photojournalism is there to reveal the ugliness of our world and documenting various aspects of tragedies is right and proper. Read the whole story by Enzo dal Verme on his blog
and my comments here.
