the kid seeing his sister made me sad. sad times. makes me want to be a better person and give to charity and stuff, but meh, im too selfish.
If you can`t put yourself in those people`s shoes, of course they have no effect on you. That`s your problem, not the pictures.
you need a reality check
Dainty, it kind of is! If they affect you emotionally still, then yeah no reaction physically is fine. But if it didn`t tug at your heartstrings, you might want to rethink those pictures! :/
Definitely agree with that.
Or what about the photograph of the sailor kissing the nurse?
Or the students at Kent State University in 1970?
There are so many that didn`t make the list.
The Chinese man in front of the tank was a screen capture, and that`s the best one.
but on a seriouse note the picture of the Mexicans getting arrested seems far too surreal.
This speaks volumes.
...a lot of them are from the 50s...that`s pretty old too...
If they really wanted to show ones that "changed the world" they would have added more cultural ones like Monroe on top of the steam grate, opening the discussion of sexuality in the western world or something similar to that. What about the one with the migrant mother with seven children?
These are not well known photos (most) but photos of impacting events.
Woman aroent treated that bad, depends who and where you are...associated with
Good collection though
It could have been that he was witnessing death like that all around him, and simply trying to help would have been futile, i guess when you`re in a situation like that, there is nothing you can really do but still, I think putting journalistic principles above principles as human, is still wrong.
LiquidCheese, why couldn`t a photographer take the pictures THEN help? I understand that it`s a principle to observe and not interfere, but can`t he step outside of that photographer persona to be a human again and save another human?
That photo probably didn`t change the world, but I certainly found it very moving. I don`t really ever cry but that photo (and the backstory) got me very close.
Does anyone know the name of the photo i`m talking about, or where it can be viewed?
