Regarding the Ethics of Photojournalism
June 26, 2012
"Among other things, the visual journalism community should strive to "be accurate and comprehensive in the representation of subjects;* resist being manipulated by staged photo opportunities; be complete and provide context when photographing or recording subjects; avoid stereotyping individuals and groups; recognize and work to avoid presenting one's own biases in the work; *treat all subjects with respect and dignity;* give special consideration to vulnerable subjects and compassion to victims of crime or tragedy; and intrude on private moments of grief only when the public has an overriding and justifiable need to see. ~Mickey H. Osterreicher
