DYING TO TELL THE TRUTH – Pawns in The Game (Expendable Photo-Journalists and Reporters and Camera-Men and Women):
Journalists, Photo-Journalists, Reporters, Camera-men, Camera-women are mere expendable PAWNS on the chess-board of the Commerce of War and News and Journalism and Advertising and Media (and formerly The Press) whose existence and profitability depends on churning out stories hand-in-hand with the Commanders, and Chiefs of Staff, and Directors and Greedy Investors. In Greedy and Dirty Politics and War, there are no Roses or Rosaries, it’s all just a battlefield in Which May the Best Armed Man Win for All is Fair in Love and War in Which The End justifies the Means.
“There’s no way you can hide behind the camera,
because you are looking through it,
and somehow when you look through the camera,
you feel even closer to the person you are photographing.”
– Don McCullin
