The Challenges Of Photographing Disaster

The Challenges Of Photographing Disaster | The Power of PhotoJournalists | Scoop.it
Since the oil spill started almost two months ago, images of people impacted by the spill, and wildlife covered in oil have put viewers around the world in almost direct touch with the effects of the spill. But do the pictures put recent disasters, such as Hurricane Katrina and Rita, in the same context with the oil spill? To find out, guest host Tony Cox speaks with two seasoned photojournalists -- Keith Jenkins, supervising senior producer for Multimedia at NPR, and Ted Jackson, a Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer for the New Orleans Times-Picayune.

Bella, Peter. Photojournalism- the power of images. Interesting Chicago, Interesting Chicago, 6 June. 2013. Web. 10 July. 2014.

 

Displaying images on social media enhancing the audiences thoughts about a situation rather it be good or bad. Sometimes photos that are leaked can be too graphic. Images have an impact and can be heart wrenching.  [There is another issue. What qualifies as a quality photograph for the internet does not necessarily qualify as an image for print. Ethical photojournalism is free from major post production manipulation. Good images only require minor adjustments and can be published digitally and in print. Many, if not most digital photos shot by amateurs or inexperienced people  need post production manipulation to transfer into print.]

The Boston Photographs

publication of three harrowing photos in several American Newspapers

Alexis Sharp's insight:

Ephron, Nora. "The Boston Photographs". The McGraw-Hill Reader: Issues across the Disciplines. Ed. Gilbert H. Muller. 11th ed. Boston: McGraw-Hill, 2011.609-613. Print.

 

The three photos that was published in the newspapers in the story were happen to be pictures of death in action pictures. The pictures bought upon many questions of why would you publish such disturbing photos. The reaction the to American's responses were negative. The photos bought a lot of questioning and controversy. It was questioned why the editors put out someone before they actually died falling from a building. As mentioned in the story, " for it may be that the real lesson of the Boston photographs is not the danger that editors will be forgetful or reader reaction, but that they will continue to censor pictures of dean precisely because of that reaction." Death is apart of life but for it to be published just too much. For newspapers to fail to show it, or to show it only when an astonishing set of photos come in over the Associated Press Wire. Each photo of the Boston photographs was very irrelevant. The pictures were not even news. The only newsworthy thing about the pictures were that they were taken. That's why photojournalism is more powerful than written journalism.

"Policewoman Leaked Gruesome Photos." Africa News Service 17 Feb. 2014.Opposing Viewpoints in Context. Web. 10 July 2014.


The controversy of the disturbing articles the media is leaking can bring amongst a lot of trouble. As stated in this article the leaking of the photo of the decapitated head has brought among more sadness from the person's family. It's already bad enough they have to cope and sorrow over their family member head being decapitated. That is not your ordinary death. Things like this should not have been leaked to the media. This is very disturbing.I feel that this photo is very graphic and should have been left where it was. Something like this brings among the family wanting to sue authorities. This is not right at all.

The Impact of Images: Considering the Place of Photojournalism Today

The Impact of Images: Considering the Place of Photojournalism Today | The Power of PhotoJournalists | Scoop.it
In this lesson, to commemorate the seventh anniversary of the Iraq war, students look at and respond to photos of fallen soldiers’ bedrooms. They then create and present creative photo essays.
Alexis Sharp's insight:

Doyne, Shannon. "The Imapct of Images Considering the Place Photojournalism today." The New York Times. The New York Times, 26 Mar. 2010. Web.10 July. 2014.

 

"The impact of imagesIn a world where digital cameras and amateur photos are as ubiquitous as the cell phones that carry them, has photojournalism lost impact? Or has the proliferation of images only made us more receptive to, and appreciative of, professional work?" Creating an image gives the audience a visual representation of the work of what is really going on.

Alexis Sha'kera Sharp's insight:

What is photojournalism. Youtube. 17 July. 2008. Web. 10 June. 2014.

 

Will we ever get the actual fact with the power of photojournalism? We will only know what we see on TV. There is so much technology and so much enhancing you can do to pictures. Most of the time the journalists create the picture to be worse that what it really is. It's the person who is taken the photo who really has the power of what he/she is putting out there for the people to see. If it's a tragic event they make the picture look worse than what it is to go along with tragic situation.There is always going to be the power of the media rather we as people like it or not. The controversy of what is to be good or too bad is always going to be the question.

The viewing of Osama Bin Laden death photos for congress to see is just a little too much. Okay he was captured and he was put to rest what else do you need? I mean there is proof that it is him. Things like this just bring too much stuff amongst media. Some things are just better left alone. Yes he was a bad guy he is dead now let it be and now that he is away no more left to be with him. He can't come back and be a bad man as he was when he was living.
