The Ethics of Photojournalism

This article that I am re publishing is by Sebastian Jacobitz and it really knocks the ball out of the park.  It is lengthy but well worth reading by everyone and anyone who points a camera and lens a the world around them.

At one point he makes reference to an image that came from an area called Sudan and it tells a brief story of a photographer and an image he took that ultimately led to his suicide.

The story about this photographer and his fellow photo journalists was brought to us in the form of a movie called the BANG BANG CLUB and one which I have watched over and over again, and also shared with paid for copies, with other fellow photographers.  It is worth watching.  It also available as a book, but watch the movie.
