"It is the duty of contemporary photographers to question continually what they are looking at, and why it is appropriate to permit others to look too." An excellent quote from a very thought-provoking article on the BBC website. The article is by Max Houghton, course leader in MA Photojournalism at the University of Westminster - here is a link to the full article which I expect to read again more than once http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/in-pictures-16282985
I sometimes take pictures, in the street and elsewhere, and struggle to decide whether it is right to share them. Where does observation, with maybe a little humourous undertone, shade into unkindness or just a cheap recycling of stereotypes? I took the picture above a few months ago but haven't posted until now. Still not sure whether it is right to do so.
