“discussions about ethics in photojournalism often tend to focus on issues such as the physical alteration of an image or staging a scene and much less on the deeper, perhaps more problematic, issues of representation”
This ties in nicely with National Geographic’s attempt to alter the way it deals with societies around the world.
Y’know, I’ve sometimes thought, regarding images, that they can tell as much a story about the photographer as the subject.
Very interesting read, and something, as an anthropologist, that I’ve thought a lot about. Glad to see such introspection in the world of photography…
