aWARds.


I hate war photographers or journalism photographers, whatever you call them. Photographers who go overseas are perceived to be 'better' photographers because they capture something foreign, and the skill becomes less important.
Ken and I were just having a discussion yesterday about how you're guaranteed the title 'Master Photographer' once you produce photos from the war field. Think people crying on the streets, think a wrinkly old man, think a child with a deformed face, think blood splatter on the wall.

I especially hate people like Emilio Morenatti, because not only has he tapped into that market, but he has the skill to match.
